Antiques by the Bay presents The Alameda Point Antiques & Collectibles Faire, California’s largest monthly antiques and collectibles show. With over 800 outdoor dealers selling merchandise twenty years old or older, it’s like having several hundred little antique shops and hip retro thrift stores all in one convenient location.
There is simply no better destination for the antique collector or enthusiast. Whether you’re looking to spend $10 or $10,000, we guarantee there will be something for everyone. If it’s vintage, antique, or collectible you are likely to find it here. This is without question the biggest and best variety of antiques and collectibles in all of California.
The Alameda Point Antiques and Collectibles Faire has garnered national recognition from Martha Stewart Living and Sunset Magazine, as well as Home and Garden Television’s antiques show, “Flea Market Finds” for its outstanding blend of selection, quality, and value. Closer to home, we were recently featured in the 2005 "Best of the East Bay" edition of the East Bay Express and the Oakland Tribune just declared us a "Bay Area Gem".
The event is held on the first Sunday of every month at the former Alameda Point Naval Air Station in Alameda and is surrounded by one of the most dramatic skylines you are likely to experience at any outdoor event in the country -- A stunning panoramic view of the entire San Francisco Bay Area.
It’s also worth noting that visitors of the antiques faire find the tremendous
assortment of culinary delights to be almost as buzz worthy as the show itself. Popular favorites include fresh sushi, homemade potato chips, and giant handcrafted sausages.
When was the last time you enjoyed a fresh sushi lunch while searching for antiques? This is anything but your typical antique show -- A fun and inviting alternative to the traditionally highbrow and often intimidating indoor antique shows found throughout the country.
