IT started as a few humble market stalls for vintage lovers to share their passion.

Now The Vintage Collective Markets has developed a near cult following, bringing out the best vintage stalls Perth has to offer.

Ascot Racecourse will play host to the markets on January 10 from 1-8pm.

Organiser Michelle Kolk said the event was a place to be creative and embrace the era, no matter what level of expertise.

“People live and breathe this type of genre but everything is entry level to engage young people or anyone who has ever thought about it,” she said.

“Everyone is included and no one is excluded, that’s our motto.”

While shiny cars and motorcycles are on display for a number of competitions at the event, the Vintage Collective Markets still celebrate all things rusty and dusty.

Punters can expect to see vendors sporting vintage remade, reclaimed or recycled wares and services ranging from barbers, body panel and paint, publishers, artists, performance clubs and automotive stores.

“The market covers everything from home to car to what you wear,” Ms Kolk said.

“Lots of people even come dressed for the era; it creates an atmosphere that it’s not just a market but a celebration of the vintage era.”

Part proceeds from the event will be donated to Legacy.

Entry costs $5 for adults at the gate.
