Countdown to the vintage extravaganza we've all been waiting for. Spring is finally here and with it, floral fantasies, dreams of sun beams and spring blossoms fill the air.

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

There are only two kinds of people in the world, the Irish and those who wish they were. Whether or not you're Irish or wish you were, we celebrate being green every month at the Alameda Point Antiques Faire with recycled and repurposed vintage goods. Today, I'm wearing a 50's three strand vintage necklace with multi-colored green beads found at the Point that two dealers sold to me for a song. Talk about the luck of the Irish...Happy St. Patrick's Day Vintage Lovers. I took this photo with my Hipstamatic. The vintage necklace was found at the Alameda Point Antiques Faire this year and I told the dealers I would wear it for St. Patrick's... Continue reading
