Alameda Point Antiques Faire

The largest antiques show in Northern California

The Alameda Point Antiques Faire is the largest antiques show in Northern California. Held once a month, this Bay Area antiques establishment brings in over 10,000 shoppers and 800 dealers for each monthly event.

With a fine flair for antique and vintage-feel items, the Alameda Point Antiques Faire is the perfect place to find some one-of-a-kind pieces to accent any home. Unique furniture is the norm, along with shoes, jewelry, wall sconces and a list of antique odds and ends.

Because of its stringent vendor rules (all items for sale must be at least twenty years old), and the scarcity of quality antiques shows in the Bay Area, the Alameda Point Antiques and Collectibles Faire draws a regular crowd of high-end antique dealers and serious collectors. The show’s co-founder and organizer, Alan Michaan, even stresses that it shouldn’t be called a mere flea market.

But that shouldn’t scare off the casual shopper; there are still plenty of bargains to be made among its 800 stalls of vintage stereos, clothing, furniture, jewelry, art, pottery, vintage and antique home decorations, books & collectibles, 60s-mod dining room furniture, classic Barbie dolls, and of course, much more. In addition to the regular monthly faire, the Alameda Point also holds twice a year a vintage fashion fair, featuring fashion from every decade. This is a must see for Bay Area women who love the vintage look.

The Alameda Point Antiques and Collectibles Faire is situated on a postcard-perfect stretch of the San Francisco Bay, on a former naval base’s landing strip, with the San Francisco skyline as the Faire’s backdrop. The faire and estate sales take place rain or shine, even on holidays such as Easter, and the auction previews happen the following Tuesday and Wednesday.

  1. A must go to find treasures for your home furnishing. There are a lot of sellers here who make great wood furniture. Make sure to check this place if you want a unique way to furnish your home. This happens first weekend of the month.

  2. For my fellow treasure hunters, there are always fun things to be found here. Only open the first Sunday of the month. Arrive early and bring your walking shoes.

  3. This flea market raises the bar for all flea markets. It’s the best around. You will actually want to wake up crazy early and pay the higher admission fee to get a head start b/c it will take you all day to make it from start to finish of this grand market. after a certain time the admission price drops and there are shuttles that pick up from the parking lot which is triple the distance of the actual faire. Once you enter invest in a cart even if you think your just going to be browsing. Trust me you will find some thing you can not walk away from and wish you had the extra hands.
