Alameda Flea Market

The Alameda Flea Market happens on the first Sunday of every month on the old Alameda air strip. It's enormous. You could spend the whole day there walking around and still not see everything. Today, as we were waiting in line to get in, the guy working there said he thought they could have over 6,000 people today, with the beautiful weather and all (although the wind got pretty heavy late in the day and was wreaking havoc with some of the display tents).

With the move to the new house coming up, we tried to limit ourselves. We'll have a better idea of what we need when we get there, and I'm sure we'll be back looking for cheap furniture to fill the rooms of the new place. Still, we found a cool 1930s-style clock and a 1950s orange chair.
