FORGET downloads, vinyl is what it's all about in Bathurst.
On Saturday, the annual Record, CD and Vintage Sale will provide an opportunity for people to pick up some classic records and collectibles.
The fair is normally held at Bathurst Showground, but organiser Patrick Coomey said it had found a new home at the Uniting Church.
He said the move would make the fair feel more like stepping into a record store, and the William Street church was the perfect venue given its central location.
"William Street was the home of vinyl [in Bathurst]," Mr Coomey added.
"Stop n Rock was one of the greatest shops in the Central West and this is like a homage."

Five stallholders with extensive collections will appear at the fair on Saturday and there will also be a selection of local music available.
Mr Coomey has also arranged for Bathurst music identity Gabbi Bolt to appear and perform.
It will also be an opportunity for her to sell her own music. She released her first EP, Grey Into Blue, in October.
This will be Ms Bolt's first time coming to the record fair and she is particularly happy about the fact the event will promote the work of local artists.
"I've listed to a lot of the music on the shelf here and it is good music and good song writing," she said.
Mr Coomey said people can expect to see music available from a lot of well-known artists, including Elton John, who is a hot topic in Bathurst at the moment.
"If you want to get reacquainted with Elton John on vinyl, there will be plenty of Elton John," he said.
Mr Coomey said that vinyl is the closest sound to a live performance and everyone should experience it, which is where Saturday's event can come in handy.
The fair will be on from 9am to 5pm in the church hall and forecourt.
Although parts of the CBD will be closed to traffic on Saturday for the Bathurst Cycling Classic, this block of William Street will not be affected.
