OK… I’m biting the bullet. After 7 years of loyal monthly attendance at the Alameda Point Antiques and Collectibles Fair, the event that inspired and fed my interest in all things antique and vintage, I’m going public with my addiction – who’s with me?
Located on the abandoned runways of the former Alameda Naval Air Station, just outside of San Francisco, CA, this monthly event (first Sunday of each month) is one of the things I look forward to most. It attracts hundreds of vendors and thousands (5-10,000 on a good day, I’d guess) of shoppers, and I’ve seen some of the most amazing, unique items there (like this monster). And bought quite a few (like this vintage supercomputer and this excellent office chair).
But I’ve always wondered about the other people who go (everybody’s too busy looking to talk to strangers). Who are you? Why do you go? What do you find? What’s your deal?
So I’ve decided to create a Facebook Fan group for Alameda and see what happens.
If you like Alameda, join the Facebook group… and maybe leave a comment here too (below) if you feel like it!
