"Girls just wanna" have some "Flea Market" fun..!!

Some Flea Market "Bling" at an affordable price... Check out the Alameda Flea Market....
Last weekend, Brooke, Stacey and I went to our first 'real' Flea Market in Alameda near San Francisco.. A big storm had come in and we were worried that it would be completely rained out.. To our blessed luck.. the weather was great.. alittle cold but, as soon as
the Sun peaked through the clouds it was warm.. A real fun event.. There was too much 'EYE CANDY' AND GORGEOUSNESS... (is that a word?) we had prepared for it all month so, we had
a little extra money saved for it but, we all did really well and didn't spend too much.. We got some great deals... of course we wanted all the furniture and grand items but, isn't our time to
buy stuff like that.. I was happy with my fun purchases and got real great deals... We stayed for about 3 hours and that was just perfect.. A fun adventure, Mother and Daughters....
There were some very beautiful put together booths.. They really know how to sell....
Everything from Retro, funky, modern, vintage, classic, old, weathered, shabby chic..... All beautiful in it's own right!
Some more beauty..
Lace, embroidery, velvet bag, ...
Old handels, old horse leather and metal charms.
Old vintage Christmas cards... christmas bird and balls..
Vintage Millinery hats and porcelain flowers...
Large Metal frame... and underneath old vintage chenille... Not big purchases for me but, some
fun items and we just enjoyed looking at everything and we got some great creative ideas and just enjoyed doing something a little different.. A fun little excursion....
