    COBURG, Ore. - Historic Coburg took a trip back in time today.

    The city held its 29th Annual Antique and Vintage Fair.

    About 300 dealers lined the streets, selling everything from furniture and decorations to clothes and pocket watches.

    Hundreds of shoppers turned out to buy them.

    This year's antique celebration brought in long-time dealers but also some first- timers like Elizabeth Beckett.

    "Antiques are fun. Retro is fun. I wear it. I love it. And it's such a great culture and everyone that's part of this atmosphere and culture is really kind," Beckett said.

    Her mom owns The Mercantile in Springfield.

    She said the fair is all about keeping the old, new.

    For her, the hottest items of the day were '50s and '60s clothes.
