The City

 Finally!!! I get to go to a flea market. Alameda has been rained out. So, all of us treasure seakers have been waiting and praying that it wouldn't rain this weekend. I love when my birthday falls on a weekend of a flea market. I get to do what I want. Yippee!!! Stephen and I head up north and arrive in Alameda on Saturday. We always stop at our favorite little cafe, The Hobnob. We always have a little appetizer and a martini.

Oops...Looks like I have had a little to much. A little blurry.

This is the view from our hotel room with Oakland in the background.

We get up very early and are at the flea market with the whole world there it seems like. I try something new and start at the back of the flea market because usually everyone in the front is not unpacked. I start to panic...Oh no! The dealers are not unpacked in the back either. I look in panic at my husband and say "We have to hurry back to the front!" "I'm missing out in all the good stuff!" My husband has the patience of Job. We hurry up to the front and I start to get my bearings.

I love the pinkie red grape gathering basket and the large clock.

Look at these! They would make a great coffee table with glass on top.

These old setzer bottles from Europe. Two girls from Holland brought a container over. I bought great stuff from them.

This is William's booth. He always has great bamboo mirrors. Love the texture of this arrangement.

I am happy and content now...
