Recently we decided to go host a booth at Alameda " Antiques by the Bay" where you are only allowed to bring in true Vintage pieces. An early (very early) experience we woke up at 1:45 a.m. to finish loading trailor & head down with an arrival time of 4:15 a.m - set up in the dark &witness the sunrise over the beautiful Bay bridge in the distance as so many vendors-shoppers wandered the grounds. We got so many ideas, and met so many people we had heard about, The one and only "Big Daddy" and his items were as amazing as we had heard, our friends over at "Tattered House"who had precious designs, from Roseville, "Bungalow" from Fair Oaks who had the most beautiful peices, met Marilyn from Oregon who hosts her own fabulous blog "Marilyn,Marilyn,Marilyn" and we even saw Dianne Keaton strolling around and were even more excited when she stopped at our booth and chatted with her friends about one of our vintage pieces (a grain box) as we sat that in a daze-and i think smiled. At the end of the day we loaded up and headed home to finally arrive back in Folsom at 6:30 p.m. A really long day but so worth it, if you ever get a chance to go, You Must Go, it is just fabulous.
