Recommendation by Lemi
Located at the former Alameda Naval Air Station, Alameda Point Antiques Faire is the champion of the Bay Area flea markets. Thousands of unique items, including furniture, posters, and vintage wear, litter the once-in-a-month event (on the first Sunday). Products are required to be 20 years aged or older, so expect less one-dollar bins and more mid-century rarities. Join headlamp-donning savants as soon as shops open for a chance to score the best items, like an Eames chair! Fees are higher the earlier you get here, but it’s totally worth it. Remember to wear comfortable shoes, since diving into the deals usually takes a full day for the antique-obsessed.
