This Weekend’s Vintage Finds: 4/12/2010
I was preoccupied last week and never got to post my finds from Alameda. Usually an awesome experience, last Sunday’s fair was pretty disappointing because it happened to fall on Easter Sunday (a freezing cold day, I will add). I, as a heathen, was willing to make the journey if only for a couple hours of shopping. Only a handful of the sellers were there and they were all spread out — making walking to each table a bit of a trek. I did find a few patterns to make the overall lackluster fair worth the drive.
Then, on Friday, Krissy and I headed to an estate sale in Pacifica. I have to say that the rude older men who flock to estate sales are really making me hate the experience. Despite the fact that I’m usually holding my daughter, they have no problem pushing, ignoring or stepping on me to get to things that they like. They’re a lot nicer when they’re vendors, but when were all in the trenches together it’s kill or be killed. When these first-world antiquing hardships are one of my biggest problems, I shouldn’t complain.
I bought all of the above for about $15 (at both Alameda and the estate sale) so I really shouldn’t be complaining.
