Found at the Flea: Alameda Point (Oct 2, 2011)

This past weekend I headed to the Alameda Point Antiques Faire. The largest antique fair north of the Rosebowl Flea Market, the number of vendors at Alameda Point can be overwhelming; so much so that I forgot to take pictures of items towards the later half of our trip (probably because I started buying first). The offerings are as varied as the number of vendors, I think it would be difficult to walk out of there without something. I’ve gone many times and never left empty handed, no matter how little I intend to buy. Below are some of the unique finds and great ideas found at this show.

Wooden torch in hand sconce

 

Unique covering for an old lamp shade. Would be cool with a bulb that you would like to show off, like an Edison bulb.

A gaudy Graceland style table. It was amazingly ugly, but I was obsessed with it.

Dont think I really need to justify this table. Kind of speaks for itself, but then I might be biased

Cat Artwork that kind of summarizes my current affinity for mid century art

Great idea for an old platter. Paint it with chalkboard paint and use it to sell burlap! (just kiddin)

Some amazing vintage liquor bottles

Seems like Every Found At the Flea post has to have a deer in it, so….

Mid Century Lamp.

And a chair that had an amazingly high back. Among the many skills I am planning to learn this winter, one of them is upholstery. This chair caught my eye but I think is above my level it this point.
