Featured Dealer May 2011 ~ The Tattered House

June 11, 2011

May's featured dealers, Erika Friend and Sandy Bryan of the Tattered House from Roseville, California's booth was first noticed when we were shooting our commercial for Eye on the Bay for a CBS spot which aired this past month. We were hurriedly scouring for French antiques on a budget and stopped by their regular booth space (J23). We were attracted to some lovely painted white French chairs, that we ended up reluctantly passing on. We were looking for items to create a French cafe look and although we didn't actually use the footage we shot in their booth in the final, we couldn't resist taking photos of their delectable decor. Everything in their booth... Continue reading

Raining on our parade.

Vintage pin-up caught in a storm on her way to the Faire!

Mother Nature is thinking of something else this month by sending a thunderstorm right on our antique show weekend. Raining on our parade is not a very nice thing to do, leaving all our vintage loving shoppers like this lovely lass, out in the cold!

A nice day for a white wedding.

April 30, 2011
Grace Kelly, Princess of Monaco

The birth of the Alameda Point Antiques Faire was around the time of Princess Diana's passing. I remember this clearly because there was so much memorabilia at the time. Since our show has a 20 year or older rule for items, no new merchandise is permitted to be sold so the commemorative Beanie Baby of Princess Diana was not allowed. Everything referring to her was selling at a record prices, from china to jewelry. Now, the Charles & Diana wedding collectibles are allowed at our show. Time flies... If you attended the spring Alameda Point Vintage Fashion Faire held at the O' Club, you must have noticed that there were beautiful vintage bridal gowns... Continue reading
