Dear Antique Faire Enthusiasts, The Wet Weather Continues – Once again, on Sunday March 6 we were subjected to another in the seemingly endless series of rainstorms targeting the 1st Sunday of the month. The big difference this time was the inaugural event of our new Rainout Rollover Policy. All the forecasts were predicting solid rain throughout Sunday, so on Saturday morning March 5th, I cancelled Sunday’s Antique Faire and scheduled the makeup event for the following Sunday, March 13. Our makeup show was a resounding success even though there were predictions of rain (again!) late in the day, and the weather was somewhat chilly and cloudy. Over... Continue reading

What’s New at the Faire: “Rain-Outs, Second Chances”

We are happy to welcome all of our dedicated Antiques Faire shoppers and dealers to our December 2010 Faire, which is our 148th show! We were all very disappointed on November 7th to have our monthly event completely rained out. We know that our shoppers really look forward to the faire and for many of the antiques vendors, Alameda Point has become the most important show at which they sell. In fact, many of our vendors set up exclusively at Alameda Point. Because of the importance of our event to so many people it is very upsetting to have the show rained out as occurred last month. (Be aware however that even if it rains, the... Continue reading

Now in its 12th year of operations this event, held on the 1st Sunday every month is host to over 10,000 antique buyers who converge here to search over 800 antique dealer booths for the widest array...
