Thousands of people have flocked to the Prince of Wales Showgrounds for the Bendigo National Swap Meet.
The annual event has more 1700 stalls this year, with everything from car parts to antiques up for sale.
The Jadis Rod and Custom Car Club had their regular site set up on Saturday. Club member Wayne Mayes said the group had been attending the swap meet for the past 30 years.
"We have different stuff coming in every year because a different club member decides to clean their shed out each year," Mr Mayes said.
"So we're lucky because there's always something here that's a little different."
This year, an old car relic was proudly on sale for $350.
"I was told it was an FJ Holden and when I got there it was a Morris Oxford," Mr Mayes said. "It's nothing like it at all! It kind of has a hump at the back, but that's about it.
"Obviously I got it for next to nothing and it's more of a spares car. So I brought it here and somebody might just want something.
"It's not a lot for a car - a door may be worth $350 in itself - so hopefully someone can use it."
Mr Mayes said some customers had suggested an alternative use for the car.
"Somebody wants to use it as garden art mind you, so you never know," he said. "What some people think is rubbish, may be a treasure to others. It could end up in somebody's garden."
Evoca business owner Ron Barry was back at the swap meet on Saturday for his 15th year.
He had a collection of crystals, minerals, and unique antiques up for sale - including a series of special bottles dating back to as early as 1850.
"The bottles are the little companies that were in the country towns," Mr Barry said. "Every country town had a soft drink factory in the old days. So that's the collectable thing about the bottles."
Mr Barry said the crowd was excellent on the first day of the swap meet.
"There are a lot of people around," he said. "I have the same people coming back every year because they're building their collections."
David Sweetman has been making the journey down to the swap meet from Brisbane for the past 20 years. The pedal cars collector has regular customers who return each year.
"It's getting more and more demanding for collectors, which is good because there are new collectors always coming in," Mr Sweetman said.
"Everybody relates to the pedal cars as childhood toys. That's what they like about them."
The Bendigo National Swap Meet will continue at the Prince of Wales Showgrounds on Sunday.
