Don't forget to try to be there on the first Sunday of the month for the Alameda Flea Market. It's yoooooge! Glamorously, I flew back from San Francisco today. Here's my Kittyhaul from the market:
(above) A cool floral western shirt, a belt with blue flowers, an apron pattern (it has sewing themed transfers!), a floral princess line dress in a thick cotton and original fifties curtains! All gen-you-wine vintage items! Score! (I regret not buying the red and white 50s slingback sandals though. I knew I would. Oh well. I hope they make someone very happy)
(above) Did I mention it was huge? This is just a snippet. You can see how far back it goes, and it was wiiiide too. (That's the San Francisco skyline in the background, if you look carefully) The flea market is held at the naval yard that 'Mythbusters' often use for crashing things. The parking lot was just as huge, we almost lost the car.

I went to Britex fabrics, but only bought haberdashery items. The fabric was expensive, and I didn't see any have to haves. I did buy some fabric though, on Haight Street. More on that later.
