EDDIE ROSS at Alameda Point Antiques & Collectibles Faire

Eddie Ross wrapped up his year of touring some of the country's best flea markets this past Sunday at our very own Alameda Point Antiques and Collectibles Faire. I think it was perhaps the coldest day in the Bay Area to date but it did not damper the spirits of the loyal following that assembled to meet Eddie and learn his secrets of navigating the market to find the best treasures.


Here he is meeting one of his all time favorite readers, Kathysue, who braved the frigid weather to come and meet her favorite stylist and blogger!

These sisters were dressed to kill! How cute are they?

Eddie was amazing, and it was such a treat to be able to listen to him as he described what to look for in terms of markings and age as well as the many ways in which it could be used. No wonder he's the man when it comes to styling. His imagination is endless with possibilities!


He was so entertaining and funny! Believe it or not, he's even more adorable in real life!

She missed out on the tour...unfortunately she didn't sign up in time :-)

Jaithan is still interested in what Eddie has to say even after an entire year of touring flea markets across the country.

This was one of the best moments, when he spied something he couldn't resist...

He whipped out his wallet right then and there and paid for his treasures...2 pieces of Heisey glass with the Greek Key motif. Does he look victorious or what? Apparently it's one of his most beloved collections.

(I will add Steven Small's photo gallery of this months bounty of treasures later this afternoon)

Thanks for posting this photo of my sister and me. It reminds me again of how much we enjoyed the day, being together, being with friends, and being with like-minded fans of Eddie. The weather be damned, we were dressed to chill!
