One man’s junk is another’s treasure

The Alameda Point Flea Market is a fun place to spend a Sunday morning.  Today’s was glorious. So beautiful, that the car’s auto air conditioning went on as we left, which then left me anxious that global warming and the melt down of all of the polar ice caps is looming much closer than previously imagined.  But I digress…

Reduce, ReUse, Recycle….that’s all good, right?  So the Flea market is full of things 20 years and older (at least) and happens every first Sunday of the month.  Treasures or junk abounds.   The hard core get there at 6am when the place opens.  But getting there at a more reasonable hour is okay too if you’re okay with less good stuff, and traffic, but maybe more sleep.  Wear good comfortable walking shoes, put on sunscreen, and bring water.  Expect to get your hands grubby if you like to pick things up. Bring your camera because even if you don’t buy stuff, you can always take pictures of it.  And most important, bring cash!  It’s 800 or so garage/estate sales all on one decommissioned airplane runway.
