THE ANTIQUES FAIRE IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED
Happy New Year to all of our Vendors and Customers! We hope 2021 brings a resolution to the Coronavirus and prosperity and new beginnings for all.
Dear Alameda Point Antique Faire buyers and sellers:
WE WILL BE CLOSED UNTIL A VACCINE IS IN PLACE. WE HOPE WE WILL BE ABLE TO OPEN IN LATE SPRING / EARLY SUMMER.
While all of us at Antiques By the Bay are very desirous to reopen our event we must regretfully remain closed until a vaccine is in place and plan to reopen when we feel that it is safe for our staff, dealers and visitors, hopefully this will be late spring or early summer. (The date at the bottom of this page is an automated widget built into the website. Please check this section for the reopen date).
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 Coronavirus 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.
For those who purchased tickets through Brown Paper Tickets, it does not look likely that they will issue refunds. They are being sued in their state. We never received payment from BPT for the tickets that you bought. But 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,
WE WILL POST THE DATE FOR OUR 2021 VINTAGE FASHION FAIRE IN THE NEXT COUPLE MONTHS
We hope the VFF will reopen in late spring but this depends on the status of the vaccine. Since it will take time to distribute the vaccine and we need to advertise in advance, it could be fall before we can hold our show. We will update the websites and send notices as we get closer to that time. Brown Paper Tickets is not responding to calls or emails for refunds. We will honor your ticket purchases 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.
