Summertime at Treasure Island Flea Market

 I had the great pleasure of hosting my mom, Fran and sister, Marcee this weekend.  We had several things that we wanted to do while they were in the Bay Area, including a visit to Treasure Island Flea Market that happens during the last weekend of every month.  It was a beautiful day and there were a lot of people and pets shopping.  I bought Fran a wonderful silver necklace and bracelet to match as well as other things.  She had a great time.  Sorry that there aren't too many photos, but I spent most of my visit entertaining Fran!  Happy summer and see you again soon.  Cheers!

Summertime at All Things Vintage


It's finally summer and hot, hot, hot in the Bay Area.  I could have gone to the beach today, but decided a better way to spend my Saturday was to visit Claudia and Lucy at my favorite vintage clothing store, All Things Vintage in Oakland.  I love this store because there is always wonderful conversation with Claudia and Lucy and the most beautiful clothes and jewelry, etc. to admire, inspect and buy.  Everyone talks fashion, past and present and I always learn something new about vintage collecting, flea markets and designers.  Today I purchased a beautiful silk hat from the 1920's that I will be wearing this summer.  Claudia and Lucy's store will be closed the month of July, but check their website at for dates they will be open in August.  Visit their store if you can.  Have a wonderful summer and remember to shop vintage and always resale!  Toni
