The thing I love most about living in the Bay Area, aside from the great weather, is the fact that there is always something going on, always something to do. A couple weekends ago I went to the Alameda Antique Fair for the first time. It's by far one of the largest flea markets in the area. It happens on the first Sunday of every month and is fantastic. A great place to go if you're looking for vintage items, particularly furniture (go early to get the good stuff!) and also to find diy or repurposing projects. Not only is it great for that, but also a lot of fun to walk around and check out all the vintage stuff. I definitely recommend going if you have the chance, I know I'll be back again!
