What caught my eye today...

At The Alameda Point 

Can you tell this was my favorite thing?

My sweet husband got me a portabella mushroom taco from here.

  It was divine!

 Check it out, you can eat inside!

That is a luxury at The Point!

Seltzer bottles anybody?

There were plenty to go around.

My second favorite thing were these wonderful large double handled enamel pots which were a steal at only $50!

Uh oh... another bottle!
I plugged my ears when I heard it calling my name. 

 I thought these were a steal!
They were good sized and would make a stunning display.


I had not been to The Point for several months and although today was absolutely gorgeous I have to say I didn't see anything I couldn't live without  and so my friends I left empty handed which felt fantastico!

Empty handed is good if nothing really spoke to you! Thanks for sharing so many interesting images. I sure wish we had markets like that around where I live.

Looks like a lot of fun stuff but if nothing was caling your name...maybe next time. It was fun to see since I've heard of this show but it's to far for me to go.

I hope you're enjoying your Sunday!

I missed today, the first time in 3 months. Love your photos, the sky was beautiful there today and so many great items, I recognize many booths. It's great you left with nothing, if you're heart doesn't find anything that speaks to it, there are loads of times to come. Good for you!

I have been wanting to go there. Are the prices good? It looks like you had a nice day.

It was a glorious day in Calif. that is for sure. I loved all the large letters and the street signs would have caught my eye and I think maybe at least one would have to come home to my house, black and white and a name, love that thought!! Have a good week!! xo Kathysue

How on earth did you show such restraint. I wanted almost everything - especially that R for my parents new place, it would have been perfect.
I didn't get to go junking this weekend so thanks for giving me a fix!

Looks like it was a wonderful sunny day! The mushroom taco sounds good....I don't think I could have left empty handed though!!

I cannot believe I did not get to see you or give you a hug! I haven't seen you in ages!

It was a beautiful day - unfortunately just as I was getting into the spirit of it I got a call from Felix - bike accident just outside the Webster tunnel so we spent the rest of the day in emergency - thank goodness he was wearing his helmet!

Tons of goodies! I hardly know you, but the first shot of the leather? bucket, and I was pretty sure you'd love it. I probably would have figured out a way to justify the orange and white platters. Thanks for sharing!

Beach House Living said...

I'm saying oh my I would like this and that. Like the iron R, and those canvas sacks, trophies, old life rings...Please be my personal shopper. It's really more fun with other people's money.

We had fun at the Alameda Flea Market yesterday too! Only left with a few tiny treasures, but it was a joy to soak up the sun and enjoy the beautiful day! Glad you had fun there too. We are lucky girls to have San Francisco and surrounds in our backyards :)
