Last weekend, we took a trip across the bay to the alameda flea for the first time. I don’t usually gravitate towards vintage clothes or things. I’m not a “thrifter”, the rifling through racks and racks of stuff just turns me off. As well as that certain vintage smell that all second hand clothes come with. Not a fan. I know by saying that I’m anti-vintage, I’m going against what every fashion loving person claims to be the best source of awesomeness. Oh well.
When it comes to furniture though, I’m all about mid-century modern style vintage type things. I saw much of that at the Alameda Flea, but nothing I couldn’t do without. We did have some lucky finds though. B’s friend Ray who has a baby on the way bought an awesome tricycle that B rode around the rest of the day.
Something I wanted to buy, but didn’t: Outdoor kerosine lamps.
I wanted that SCHOOL sign! And this french cardiovascular system chart!
Our finds: 3 anchor thingies probably to get mounted on a wall and an anchor trivet.
