A Trip to the Alameda Flea Market!

The Alameda Antiques Faire is the largest antique show in Northern California. Held on the 1st Sunday of every month, the Faire boasts over 800 dealer booths! All items are 20 years or older. This is the ultimate place to shop for vintage and antique home decorations, clothing, furniture, jewelry, art, pottery, books & collectibles. Here is a very small selection of photos to give you an idea of the incredible variety of items!

One of my favorite finds

An old perfume bottle with an intricate floral designed top. Maybe made out of some sort of bone or ivory? Or that could be wishful thinking!

Every antique doorknob you could imagine.

This is an old set of salt and pepper shakers, but look how well it works as a stand for my handmade beaded bouquets!
