Message from the President, February 2011

Welcome to the Alameda Point Antiques Faire

Happy New Year to All!

Our string of bad weather events continued on Sunday, January 2. Fortunately it was not a rainout as the rain stopped at 10:00am and most of the dealers and buyers in attendance who were waiting for the predicted break in the weather were rewarded with sunny skies. All of us at Antiques by the Bay wish to express our gratitude for the continued support from our Faire shoppers, as well as the hundreds of vendors of fine antiques and collectibles at the Point.

As you can see our magazine, The Point, has now taken on a new format. This new format will be easier to tote around as you look for your favorite dealers at The Faire. We invite submissions from our readers on topics about art, antiques and collecting. Please be reminded that we will begin our new “Rainout Rollover Policy” this year.


The Alameda Point Antiques Faire has established a new Rollover Faire Date Policy. If a show is rained out we will automatically schedule a make up show for the following Sunday, the 2nd Sunday of the month. The Rollover date will only be scheduled if show management cancels the show. Check the website to see the status of the show. Look for your favorite dealers in their regular spots, as most of them will be there.

We still hold the show in light rain, so how do you know if the show has been rescheduled? There are 3 ways to get this information:

  • Check the website for updates before the faire. We will post a notice that the show has been cancelled, along with the rescheduled date.
  • Sign up for Antiques Faire information. You can sign up on our website to receive email notifications for show reminders, information or rain updates. Look for the registration box on the main page of our website www.alamedapointantiquesfaire. com.
  • Call the office to hear updates on our outgoing message. 510-522-7500

So rain or shine we will see you at The Point! If it’s a rainout show, we hope to see you on the 2nd Sunday of the month! If it rains on the 2nd Sunday we will NOT have another rollover. The show will be held on its regular day, the 1st Sunday of the following month.


The Alameda Point Antique Faire Website Free Online Selling Platform “OWN IT NOW” is now up and running. This is a free service that allows Antique Faire sellers to post photos of merchandise for sale so that customers can shop all month long! To check it out, go to our home page and click on the red bar immediately below the page choice menu that says “OWN IT NOW Click Here For Antiques Available From Our Dealers For Purchase Right Now”. Clicking on any photo brings it up full screen with the viewer having the option to click on the Dealer Profile to make the purchase. This is also a way to preview what Dealers will have for sale in the booth at the Faire. So check back regularly to see updates!
