The Next Best Thing

To Being There!


I try and take lots of photos for those of you who have never been to Alameda Point in hopes that all the goodness I see through my lens will entice you to come out and experience it for yourselves!
 

Yesterday was a gorgeous day which definitely added to the experience!


First up was this outstanding rainbow display of Bakelite!


What a collection this woman has amassed!


I think she could open up a Bakelite Museum with her jaw dropping collection!


I've been having some wrist pain of late and really need to give it a rest so carry on and enjoy the rest of the show!


I hope one day I will have the opportunity to run into you here. 


Unfortunately, yesterday I missed out on meeting Theresa Cheek from Art's The Answer who was in town visiting her daughter and upon arriving at The Point texted me just as my phone died!
 

Maybe if I hadn't taken so many photos...
 




































































On a final note, don't miss the premier of LA Shrinks on Bravo tonight as our friend and fellow blogger, Kevin from Hollywood Forever, Kevin, and his partner are on it.  I for one can't wait!

Oh...I loved seeing the vintage easter stuff and the rusty patio furniture with the pretty new cushions. Nothing like a really good flea market. I love it when you take photos. I can't wait to see Kevin tonight...he he!

Thank you for posting all these photos each time you go. I just love seeing it through what your eye catches as interesting. I used to live in Alameda and would love to go back to attend this.

Wholly cow Terri you are one lucky woman to get to hunt like that. We won’t have anything like this until the snow melts in May. Those window grills you showed laying on the ground are fabulous and would wonderful on the back of our home with clematis winding around them. Always fun seeing Trino in pictures! Thank you for taking us along with you!

Terri,
I always enjoy your trip to the Point! I hope I'll get up there one weekend. You have a great eye- so much to love there! I'm especially cray for the bakelite, the flatware, the cutting boards, the copper pots..!

Hope you had fun!

Sometimes, things don't work out! :) We will meet one day, probably at a flea market ! I see we went by many of the same booths, the weather was incredible and I totally enjoyed it!

This is a great place! I love those saint statues. I have several of them, but always have room for one or two...
