The Old School House beside Christ Church at the top of Gorey’s Main Street is the place to visit on Bank Holiday Sunday (11am-5pm) for the Gorey Book and Collectibles Fair.
About a dozen book sellers and buyers from across Ireland will be in attendance, offering books for every taste and free valuation for antiquarian books.
It will be an opportunity to buy, sell or evaluate individual or collections, and, of course, books don’t have to be too ancient to be available. It is also an opportunity to make enquiries about rare or out-of-print books of interest, and even though they may not be available on the day, it is possible to set up a search.
Kieran O’Brien, one of the Fair organisers, told WexfordLocal.com that “We will have books of every genre for everyone; children’s books, antiquarian tomes, collectible works, out-of-print classics, local books and comics. There will also be coins, antiques, china, postcards, ephemera and much more…”
The Gorey Book and Collectibles Fair takes place this coming Sunday from 11-5pm in the Old School House, Christ Church, Main Street, Gorey. €2 entry fee. Children go free.
