Alameda Pointe Antiques & Collectibles Fair





I really wasn't planning on going this month since I had scored some cool treasures while thrifting on vacation last week in Lake Tahoe.

  But then I realized I hadn't been in several months as the June show was on the day of our son's High School Graduation and then the following month it was on the 4th of July. 

  So, around 11:00 am when the phone rang and I heard my friend Debbie's voice asking if I was there yet, I told her I wasn't coming until it dawned on me that I hadn't done a post on The Point for several months.  I thought maybe some of you might be missing seeing all the fun and treasures to be had at the monthly show on our fair island.

Okay, do I give you my shopping list now?
My favs Tennis trophy it looks pretty tall, that white mirror with the bulb looks interesting, neat crusty white chandeliers neat for outside. Last but not least silver plate oh my goodness I would have been picking through that for hours!

Those battered frames are so beautiful, Terri! Hope your break down at the lake was fun! xo

Wow - this place looks amazing....I absolutely love the large glass container packed in the crate. That is awesome. I love all the vintage shells as well. I wished that I had something like this close to where I live - although I hear Mount Dora in Central Florida has some great vintage flea markets.

Wonderful booty, and such inspiring things (though some of the prices seem steep). When will I go?!

I want the organ pipes...

Ma Mere et Me said...

I love your photos of the day. Addison and I were there looking at lots of the same goodies. I even picked up those really nice berry baskets thinking they would be great to gather the chickens eggs in. One day we will bump into each other, until than we love your blog!

I'm so jealous! I didn't go this time--we are up in Asti. Everything you featured, I love! I'm going to try to go to the new one at Candlestick though in a few weeks. Thanks for giving me a thrill--I feel like I was there almost, except I didn't spend any money!

Oh, what treasures! And your photography is simply superb! I love that last image....as I adore silver. Keep your eye out for sterling napkin rings for me: Letters I need are G, C and T!

This flea market is just so amazing. I would have taken home that super adorable ship in a bottle...., and that shell pot just looks like the one I saw in your outdoor space!!

Privet and Holly said...

Ah, thanks
I needed THAT!!!
Yes, I did.....
I've had a super

Hoping to make up
for it while on

Now I'm looking back at your photos, kicking myself that I didn't buy those distressed columns. *sigh* Although I don't know how much they were, but LOVE them and those statue fragments were so cool too! Great photography!!

I LOVE YOUR BLOG!! Great post! I'm now your fan! What great finds!!! I would love to see this place! Therese, did you happen to see any antique street lighting (outdoor posts/lamps) at the fair?? My husband is a BIG collector. I know I could lure him on a plane to visit this wonderful fair if he thought he'd would find a street light! Thanks for posting this! :}

Lumo said...

Just came home from Hong Kong and Australia with some cool finds on flea markets and vintage stores and already I am envious to see these great treasures you seem to find weekly...
