If I knew I would have moved back to Cali along time ago....

You know how every once in a while you stumble across a little somethin' somethin' that takes you to your happy place? An awesome little coffee shop, a little flower market, or a fun boutique? Well I struck GOLD this past weekend thanks to my Mom & her recommendation that I visit one of the Bay area's best antique fairs. It was ahhhhhhmazing.....it opens at 6 am on the first Sunday every month and it's set up along the water...There were soooo many items...nothing less than 20 years old. Furniture, art, dishes, textiles and the list could go on forever. There were so many vendors that even after spending the day there I could not get to all of them. It was such an amazing place that I will be looking at my monthly calendar differently now....I will be counting down til' the first Sunday of every month 12 times a year ;.) If any of you are ever in the Bay area we should totally go together...but if not, then I thought you might like to check out a few photos....





*sneak peak....I scored this little vintage four- legged beauty for a future project... only$25 buckaroos.....so stay tuned for that. As for today, we are off to an amazing fabric, trim, and ribbon store downtown in San Fran...the hubs is a lil' worried...I am a little too excited ;.)

                               *not a great shot but you get the idea;.)
 Have a great day!

Her jewelry line is called J Fein Designs :) Wonder if you saw her...I moved to Charlotte two years ago after living in the Bay my whole life...I love and miss the Alameda Antique Show...Lucky girl!
