Treasure Island!!!

This past Saturday night daughter number 4, Kate, sent me a text asking if I wanted to go to the Treasure Island Flea Market on Sunday.

A friend had given her 4 tickets, (apparently you can buy them ahead of time), that she could not use...Kate and her boyfriend were planning on going, along with some friends, and she wanted to know if daughter number 3, Erin, and I wanted to go....

My response was

DUH!!!
Of course we would go!

Flea Market friend and I have talked about going to the Treasure Island Flea Market but never have been able to make it work..

Treasure Island is a man made Island in the San Francisco Bay. It was built in 1936 and 1937 for the Golden Gate International Exposition.

So a couple of different things about the Treasure Island Flea Market......

One, have you ever heard of a flea market that doesn't open until 10:00am????
Nope, neither had I!

AND

Have you ever heard of a flea market that has happy hour from 10:00am until 12:00pm?
All the cocktails are two for one during happy hour!!



The market was packed! Lots of vintage goodies, tons vintage shoes, but also lots of new, artsy stuff.

Kate and her roommate were looking for small patio furniture for the house they share in San Francisco. And their boyfriends, who are also roommates were looking for bar stools.
The boys found their vintage bar stools....nice and sturdy, they look like they could survive living in a house with 4 young men. And they only paid $30.00 a chair...not too bad!

The girls found two vintage patio chairs!  I think the vendor was tired of them asking if he could do better on the price..... he finally said give me $30.00 for the two and just take them!


I'm not sure I would go back to the Treasure Island Flea Market.....the prices are really, really high, and very few vendors seemed willing to negotiate prices.

 The weather was just perfect, considering how foggy San Francisco can be.

And the views.....well, they speak for themselves!!

I'll spend a Sunday with these two any day!!!

  1. But remember, you try not to waste away savings.Urge you that you are paying your mortgage interest credit cards to help you save money when you buy or use a resistor to put away some cash reward yourself.I used to have a lot of bad habits, and then I looked in my wallet.I was bad, and the amount spent on compulsive buying surprised me and kick bad habits and start saving money that people were enough to convince me.Non-smokers, frugal consumers, online deals and discounts that can be applicable to the study Buyers: Now is a new person.

  3. What a fun outing! Cocktails, shopping, gorgeous weather and wonderful family time...does it get any better! Too bad the prices are steep, it does sound like a wonderful time though. It's snowing again this morning. I'm starting to wonder if our outdoor antique/flea market will still have snow come April?
