On the second Sunday of every February the Newbridge showground is home to the Newbridge swap meet, an opportunity to find the rare, the weird and the wonderful.

The meet isn't just for the travellers either, locals are invited to clear out the shed and set up a stall of their own.

The Newbridge Swap Meet has been running for over 30 years and it's still packing in the bargain hunters as they search for that elusive item.

From car parts to knives the selection of goods on sale is always huge.

The Swap Meet is organised by the Newbridge Progress Association and the money raised from the gate, canteen and stallholder fees go towards improvements around the village.

No need to apply, just turn before the start time of 7am on the 9th of February. Gazebo style site fees are $20, larger ones are $35.

ANGLICAN OP SHOP $5 BAG SALE

Anglican Op Shop is a Blayney institution and the volunteers there do a great job of supporting families and individuals in need.

This week they're having a $5 fill the bag special.

All you need to do is pop into the store, fill a bag with whatever you like and it will only cost you $5.

The special ends this Friday, January 17.
