I finally made it to the Alameda Flea Market!! This market is held just outside San Francisco on the first Sunday of each month. I arrived fairly early to a foggy morning at northern California's largest flea market.
Influences from Chinatown and the ocean are some of the local items seen at the booths.
Starfish and beautiful corals can be bought. The specimens are large and numerous, not found in my land locked environment!
There are bins of small trinkets, locks, keys, typewriter keys, etc...
...and lace! Filet and crocheted!
....oddity wine bottles......
....and FRENCH LINENS!! This is what I came to see!
I came away with a few trinkets(suitcases filled to the brim already)I found some great paint brushes and small iconography pieces to squeeze into my luggage. If you are into flea markets,put it on your list- this one will not disappoint!
