It was vintage heaven at the Alameda Point Vintage Fashion Faire, held for the first time at the O’ Club on Saturday April 16, 2011. Last Fall’s strong early buy was beat this spring by the determined shoppers at 10AM, when the buying frenzy began. The flow continued steadily throughout the day, filling up the show parking lot. Show Producer Sandra Michaan reported that most dealers were selling a wide range of merchandise and there was a a buzz of wonder throughout the day, as enthusiastic shoppers wandered from room to room snapping up vintage scores, buying bags full of quality merchandise. One happy customer e-mailed show management: “I really... Continue reading

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

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

As the latest endeavor in my lifetime pursuit of glamour, I'm creating this blog to bring readers and shoppers of the Alameda Point Antiques Faire more ways to incorporate attainable, affordable accessories into their modern lifestyles with decorating and fashion tips.

I have the pleasure every month to discover amazing finds such as crochet dresses made from doilies and tiaras fit for a mermaid with... Continue reading
