Bay Area: Alameda Antique Fair

Recently I went to The Alameda Antique Fair which is held every 1st Sunday of each month. The fair is held on the edge of the Alameda shore where it once was a Navy base facing SF downtown. On chill day you need a warm jacket but on a warm day you really must leave the layers behind.

For the last two months I've been going in hopes to finding some new treasures. Last year a friend of mines took me to check it out and I've being hooked!! Now that we've moved into a new apartment I have been in search for cool finds. There is nothing like a tasty Churro and Hot Dog at the fair!

During the last two visits I've found these amazing vintage glass jars with a lot of textured and in pastel colors and have placed them on my dresser. I considered the top of this dresser my personal space where I maintain a very girlie side of me. Another find was the "Sacred Heart" with the initials "grace". I had to get it after the booth owner told me the story that this is a find he found while in France. He said this would be found at a church where people purchase it to make a wish to Jesus. It looked so cool that I had to have it! Soon I'll be sharing pics of how all this looks put together on my corner.
