THE ANTIQUES FAIRE IS CLOSED THRU WINTER
Dear Alameda Point Antique Faire buyers and sellers:
While all of us at Antiques by the Bay are very desirous to reopen our event we must regretfully remain closed through the winter and plan to reopen when we feel that it is safe for our staff, dealers and visitors.
While some other local outdoor events are being held we must point out that our event is not local but draws buyers and sellers from all over the Western United States. As long as our state continues to struggle with a large increase in Corona Virus infections and deaths I feel that it would be irresponsible to bring together the thousands of fellow antique enthusiasts that attend our beloved monthly event. We would be devastated if our antique faire contributed to the chaos that we are all living through. As well, we feel that since the location of our event is on property owned by the City of Alameda we have an obligation to behave in a fashion to protect our community.
Although we tried to reopen with a July Faire we had to cancel when the infection rate soared and we came under enormous pressure to cancel. For those who purchased tickets through Brown Paper Tickets please be assured that we are still trying to get that company to refund you. They are not returning our calls or emails and we never received any payments from them for the tickets that you bought. We will continue to work on getting them to credit you back and if we are not successful, then we will honor those tickets when we reopen even though we did not get paid for them.
We wish all of our longtime dealer and shopper friends well and hope that you stay safe and in good health. Please be diligent in wearing masks to slow the spread. We look forward to the day that we can safely reopen and greet you once again at Alameda Point. In the meantime, please remember that we continue to sell art and antiques online at Michaan's Auctions.
All the best,
Our Next Vintage Fashion Faire is: Spring, 2021
The Vintage Fashion Faire will reopen next spring. Brown Paper Tickets is not responding to calls or emails for refunds. We will honor your tickets at a future event, even though we did not get paid for them.
We hope everyone remains in good health and look forward to seeing you in 2021. Visit VintageFashionFaire.com for more information.
