26 August 2015 Collectormanic Comes to Coffs

Interested in the weird, wonderful and wacky? Then the Collectormanic exhibition opening at Coffs Harbour Regional Museum on September 15 is just for you.

“Many people probably don’t even realise that they’re collectors, but anyone with three or more objects of the same type can be classed as a collector,” said Museum Director/Curator Dr Leigh Summers.

“You might have a drawer somewhere with objects that you’ve found interesting, but have put away out of sight. Or you might enjoy showing other people the interesting things that you’ve found.

“Collections literally come in all shapes and sizes. They could be books, stamps, glassware, matchboxes, lamps, cars, fishing rods, chairs, shoes, buttons - absolutely anything.”

Collectomanic includes collections from local members of the Coffs Harbour Collectors Club. Of all the local members there are very few who collect the same types of objects.

“The collections are so diverse there’s sure to be something to interest everyone,” added Dr Summers.

“Members of the Club will be happy to talk to visitors about collecting and may even be able to offer advice on finding out more about what interests you.”

Collectormanic will be at Coffs Harbour Regional Museum from September 15 until October 31.

The Museum is located at 215A Harbour Drive, Coffs Harbour, and is open Tuesdays to Saturdays, from 10am to 4pm.
