*This Fair has since closed* The Bay Area Vintage, Antiques and Collectibles Fair has arrived. If you’re looking for that danish modern table to complete your mid-century modern decor or a stunning necklace to wear to a party this Summer, or maybe an in-perfect-condition retro ’50’s table for your kitchen, there’s a new Vintage & Antiques Fair happening the third Sunday of each month in Daly City at the Cow Palace. Aimee Rodriguez has just kindly shared some of her photos of some of the amazing treasures that you can find there. I’ve added the Bay Area Vintage, Antiques and Collectibles Fair to my list of Flea Markets & Faires. Here’s the scoop:
Third Sunday of each month – Up to 650 vendors
Check out their website for more details
$5 Gen. Adm (9 am to 3 pm) /$10 Early Adm. (7-9 am), Free Parking
It’s fun to go to a collectibles fair because there are so many great treasures to be had – all in one place. Unlike thrifting, where you have to really scour the aisles and go from place to place, which takes a lot of energy, a fair has gathered up the gems that someone has already hunted down for you and put them all in one place. Plus, you’ll often find higher-end items and one-of-a-kind pieces of furniture that you’d be lucky to find at a thrift store. Check out the Bay Area Vintage, Antiques and Collectibles Fair and let me know what you think. I’ve yet to make it there, but I’m looking forward to seeing what all the fuss is about soon.
