Every first Sunday of the month, one of the best flea markets in the Bay Area occurs – the Alameda Market. I’ve been going to this flea market since I moved to San Francisco. I furnished my first apartment almost entirely with items I found at the market. My flea market adventures began as a young girl as I went to antique and flea markets all over the world with my mom. I became her picker and combed the lower level areas – I was an expert at finding treasure underneath tables!
When Chairish approached me and asked if I would go to Alameda for the day to shop for their site, I knew this was a no-brainer. This is a place I feel quite at home. I’ve known many of the dealers there for years and my house is filled with treasures I bought from them. Many of my clients also have things I’ve found at Alameda.
On November 1st, we headed out at the crack of dawn for our shopping day. Believe me when I say this, you can find just about anything at Alameda. It was such fun picking through the treasures. These are instant keepsakes to have in your home. I’m always drawn to blue & white transfer ware and there was plenty to be had – some from Great Britain and others from France. I also found a stunning silver urn that could be used for a dramatic floral arrangement, a botanical print that would look great in any home, and champagne flutes to ring in the holiday season. French linen towels, a small watercolor painting, handmade pillows and more await you at Chairish. All of these items would make perfect gifts for the holidays.
