Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery is hosting Funky Gallery Garage Sale.

SEEING it was so much fun the first time round, Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery is once again hosting a Funky Gallery Garage Sale this Saturday from 10 am.

Items for sale include new and pre-loved designer clothing, ornaments, books, furniture, lots of very good quality larger-sized garments, fabulous funky scarves, framed paintings, knick-knacks, home wares and plenty of sewing notions - buttons, thread, trimmings, fabric and much, much more.

All the monies raised will be put towards the Gallery's acquisition fund, which purchases new works for the city's art collections.

"Morning tea will also be available with guaranteed, real home-made cake," Gallery Director/Curator Dr Leigh Summers said.

"I do hope everyone will come along find a bargain or a treasure at this fun event.

"People are also invited to donate funky goods to the Gallery for the sale by dropping them in on the Wednesday, Thursday or Friday between 10am and 4pm."

Attending the Funky Gallery Garage Sale will also allow people the chance to see some of the treasures of Ancient Rome and Egypt at the 'Veni Vedi Vici' ('I Came, I Saw, I Conquered') exhibition currently on show at the Gallery.

This fascinating display features an array of unique and valuable artefacts and images loaned - for the first time ever - by the Museum of Ancient Cultures at Macquarie University.

The priceless antiquities include large amphorae (pottery storage vessels), a lead coffin, fragile ceramic fragments, statuettes, coins, tools and other artefacts.

Entry to the exhibition is $2 with all funds returned to the Museum of Ancient Cultures. The exhibition runs until May 5.

Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery is on the corner of Coff and Duke Streets.
