Alameda Point Antiques & Collectibles Faire

The first Sunday of each month my husband and I eagerly look forward to The Alameda Point Antiques & Collectibles Faire. We are fortunate to live in Alameda so it's convenient for us.
It takes place at the old Naval Air Station situated on the bay across from San Francisco. It's a beautiful location and provides the perfect back drop for the many dealers, who come from near and far, to display and sell their treasure troves!

I'd like to take you with me through the camera lens of a very talented photographer and friend of mine, Steven Small. He's been photo journaling the wonder of this amazing Antiques Faire by the Bay since 2001.

Next month, on Sunday Dec. 6th, EDDIE ROSS & Jaithan will be touring a group through The Alameda Point showing them how to find and choose the best china, linens, glassware and silver. He's the King of Fabulous when it comes to beautiful table settings and seasonal inspiration!! I'm all signed up and counting the days until their arrival!!

And now let me introduce you to my friend, Steven Small, a man of many talents.
He is a lawyer by profession who has a passionate need to express his creative side.
I've inspired him to start a blog and maybe even an etsy store where we'll be able to purchase his amazing photography!
For now, you can look forward to a visual delight each month through the lens of his camera on 1st Sunday's at The Alameda Point.

Thanks for the fun visual journey through the Faire. So many great photos by Steven. Favorites have to be the old skates (I still remember the key on a string around my neck) and the collection of doll parts. How fun you'll meet & tour with Edie & Jaithan, I'm highly jealous! Can't wait for your report back. Thank you incredibly for your kind comments & for visiting my blog. So appreciate it. Happiest of Thanksgivings to you and yours x
