Alameda Flea Market

With a busy wedding season at hand, it’s been tough making it out to my favorite flea (The Alameda Faire) for the past few months. The Alameda, in my opinion has some of the best dealers around – and it is always an adventure whenever I do make it out. I had a late start this Sunday but was ecstatic to have at least caught the tail end of the faire. With only an HOUR or so to spare, I made my way up and down each aisle p-r-e-t-t-y quickly!

Finally found what I came here for… Kantha throws!

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

I had to move on…Time was ticking way too fast.

This dealer is the go-to guy for amazing vintage club chairs! Been thinking about picking up a pair or TWO. But, it is quite the investment! (Each chair is carefully  inspected, then imported from France.)

Anything old and chippy, Im hooked! For example this beautiful vessel at roughly $300 dollars can impulsively be mine. Luckily for me, there’s no time for impulse shopping today!! 😉

Some of the best gems are found in the back of ones TRUCK. Seriously.

I’m so glad I had just enough time to find what I was looking for. I can’t hardly wait for next month!
