People Watching at The Alameda Pointe


The Alameda Pointe Antiques and Collectibles Fair ~ February

Since I decided to take my own photos of The Alameda  Pointe this month I waited a bit before posting my friend, Steven Small's photos.  I was happy to see that the subject of many of his photos were..


"The People and Faces of The Pointe".

I spy Terri too! Bring on the sunshine of Sunday's of yore! It's freezing out here today! My favorite spot in the whole world is where Alameda Pointe is located. The best view of San Francisco from anywhere in the the east or north bay-area.

La D - So jealous whenever you post about Alameda! Wish we had a flea market nearby even 1/2 this good. Thanks for your blog visit -- wanted to let you know more about Post & Gray. It's a home decor 'warehouse' (some say mecca) with leased spaces. Each dealer fills theirs with new / vintage / antique pieces of their choosing. The space pictured was mine, and it's where I sell the things I love most (so much fun.)

People watching is great, so many interesting characters. Who are they, where they come from, what's the story behind their style...

Last summer in New York we saw some very intresting people http://lumolifestyle.blogspot.com/2009/08/new-york-characters.html

How fun! I've read so much about this market. One day soon I'll get up there. Is it wrong to organize a trip to San Francisco around a flea market? Hope not!
Thanks so much for visiting my blog. I can't remember if I thanked you via email or not. If not, please uxcuse my bad manners. If so, thanks again!

Hi Therese!

I wish I could have gone to this market with you. I love the way you not only captured the amazing goods, but all the essence of all the people there and the whole experience of the market. You have a great eye!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and sharing with your friend Kitty! There is going to be a follow up post on all the fashion windows they did as well which is also Alice In Wonderland themed so be sure to check back :-)
