Vintage Holiday Shopping at Treasure Island

I visited my favorite Bay Area flea market yesterday at Treasure Island, which is just across the Bay from San Francisco.  I wanted to see the reindeer that would be there, take some photos and do my after Black Friday shopping.  I had a wonderful time.  I met an amazing vintage clothing vendor, Jenn Kuvat of The Vintage Net and also saw friends who were selling out there.  It was a beautiful day on the Island and there were a lot of vendors.  I bought a 1970's suede brownish shirt from London and a beautiful pair of copper/gemstone hoop earrings made by Marisa Villa, who is also a friend from Berkeley.  I strongly believe in supporting local artists, especially if they're friends and Marisa's earrings definitely had to be mine.

The 2 reindeer were very tame.  They were allowed graham crackers and celery and the kids were feeding them.  Such beautiful animals.  I would only suggest that the enclosure be bigger.  After seeing all the stalls, I went to the food truck area and had a homemade tamale and strawberry juice.  What's great about their food area is that there are so many choices.  They also have a bar there and live music.  There could be a few more tables, but people are very nice about sharing.

Hope you all have a fun holiday.  Enjoy my trip to Treasure Island.  Cheers! Toni
