Our Alameda Point Antiques Faire Finds

alameda

Mel and I were up at 2:30am this morning getting ready and driving to the largest antiques show in Northern California. We love Alameda because of the size of the faire and the scenic views. You can see the heart of S.F. from almost any point around the faire.  The weather was great today, and added to the enjoyment of the day.

Here are the fruits of our labor!

This Craig radio and speakers is really cool. If you look closely, you can see orange plastic behind the speakers and radio. I love the accent of that against the dark wood. We also managed to find the really cool hourglass.

This super mod plastic clock and calendar was produced by Burwood. We love it’s functionality!

Here we have an assortment of Murano, Blenko and other cool glass pieces.

This is a real gem! This will look great with the rest of our space age decor! We love this phone.

This “Janga” looking piece is a table top puzzle piece from the 70’s.

These jacks are huge. They are made of resin, thank god because if they were metal I am not sure I could lift them! We purchased these courtesy of FandFVintage.

This interesting piece is also from FandFVintage and will be used as a planter.

This is a vintage red pod chair. We are unable to find anything about the maker of this piece. I have a yellow chair that will go with this that I cannot substantiate either. If anybody knows the maker, we’d be interested in knowing.

Some Cool Things We Recently Picked Up

The first thing we will showcase are these Sexton cats. We already have a set of these but I think we can manage to have two sets. I need to strip them and repaint them.

Mel managed to acquire a rare set of Freeman McFarlin ceramic fish.

We managed to pick up two of these really cool Dazor saucer lamps. This one is a greenish color.

This Dazor is a tan/brownish color.

This is a fantastic hanging light. This will look good next to one of our jukeboxes because it has musical notes on it. The cool thing about this lamp is that it has an aqua colored interior, so it looks really cool when lit.

This Duo Aire fan is a trip! it is both a fan and an ottoman.

This is a keeper!!!

This is a really simple rotating ottoman with a magazine rack underneath.

Here is a cool starburst shadowbox.

Mel and I found this Zombie Village menu at a thrift store for $2! This was a Tiki style restaurant in Oakland, California. I love the image on the front of this menu.

Not sure how old it is but the prices are soo unbelievable!

They really knew how to sell the enchantment of the place.

This is a cool bullet planter with a nice stand.

I wish these planters were as cheap as the ad states.

These outdoor speakers are going to be great with our mid-century backyard. I am slowly furnishing our future backyard

The speaker cabinets are made from redwood which handles weather very well.

These speakers have the installation instructions and the original boxes!

These cool 60’s lights will be a hot item in our booth for sure!

Here are a few pieces made by Mirro Medallion. A complete set of this line is hard to find and expensive. I don’t know if Mel and I are up to the challenge so this may end up in our booth.

This is a set of zodiac glasses. There are a total of 12 glasses with a different zodiac symbol on each glass with a brief description on the back of each glass explaining the traits of that symbol.

Here are just a couple of examples of what each glass looks like. I have never seen glasses like these. It appears that there are also 6 shot glasses but we are missing them from this set.
