Curious Finds

alameda flea market

Today we went to the Alameda Point Antiques Fair. It is the largest flea market in Northern California, with over 800 booths. You can find most anything there, from furniture, art, and home decorations to all kinds of crazy, vintage collectibles. Here are some of my favorite finds of the day!

A jar of old dentures. All for only $1250!

Life-size statue of Mother and Child. Perfect for the front porch!

For the Smurf lover in all of us.

A unique clock to spice up your living room.

I was going to buy this amazing old phone, but nobody seemed to know if rotary phones still work. (do they?)

A bouncing baby girl.

I found a neat old recipe book. Read the ingredients for "salad".

No words.

I also like my tea straight from the kettle.

The market happens on the first Sunday of every month. Check it out and see what treasures you can find!
