MICK Kennedy had his eye on old glassware and lamps as trawled through hidden treasures at the Rocky Swap.
The keen collector has been coming to the Rocky Swap for 18 years looking for goods, but also has his own site set up every year.
"We always attended the swaps out of town, so when the rotary started this up in Rockhampton, we wanted to support it," Mick said.
While Mick likes to add to his collections every year, the swap is a chance for his family to get rid of their old items.
But it's also a chance for family and friends to get together.
"(The swap) is more of an annual reunion with friends and family making their way to town," Mick said.
The Rocky Swap has become quite the get together for the region, with more than 11,400 people attending this year.
Mick said it was great to see the public supporting the event.
Meanwhile, Mick and the family do seemingly well selling at the swap.
"I restore old furniture and we usually go home empty handed," Mick said.
