Annaliza Arteaga | Alameda Flea Market

One of the most enjoyable parts about my job as Buyer for Seventh Heaven Vintage Rentals is finding the perfect pieces for our clients. While we have been busy working on so many lovely events, it was nice to take some time to visit my favorite flea market The Alameda Faire. I love The Alameda because of the incredible dealers that I get to meet there and all of the stunning pieces that they bring. Anytime I am looking for items for Seventh Heaven I look for the objects that speak to me. My goal is to find the things that I know our clients will adore and will want to see bring their creative vision to life for the next big event.

I could not resist myself… MORE Kantha but a different dealer. Plus, no two pieces are the same!!

I have been thinking about purchasing vintage leather club chairs. But, they are quite the investment! Be still my heart.

Anything old and chippy, Im hooked! For example this beautiful vessel at a whopping $300 dollars can impulsively be mine. Luckily for me there’s no time for impulsive purchases today.
