Treasure hunting at Alameda Antique Faire

It’s been a little while since I’ve gotten a fix of some of that good ol’ treasure hunting. The digging, the surprises, that gasp you can feel coming on when you spot something nothing short of amazing — Iove it.

This, my friends, is the Alameda Antique Faire. It’s the biggest antique show in Northern California, and it is held once a month on the first Sunday of the month. I went with my treasure-loving partner Cindy. I don’t think we have ever been so overwhelmed with booths; we couldn’t even make it around to the 800 vendors. It was that good.

But what we did see, we loved. So, here is a look at this antique heaven that is nestled on some sort of Navy base between the sea and San Francisco.

    Beautiful photos. I went antique shopping when I lived in Mississippi, but I never found anything good. I just didn’t have the eye for it. It was such a strange concept to me, coming from Kuwait where everything old is just chucked out 😦
