Update: Here is the Alameda Vintage Fashion Faire’s blog. The next event after June is Nov 14-15, 2014.


 

From overdressedforlife (6/11/14):

Coming up this weekend is the Alameda Point Vintage Fashion Faire, Friday and Saturday, June 13th and 14th at Michaan’s Annex Auction Showroom, 2701 Monarch Way, Alameda, CA.

Produced twice a year by Sandra Gordon Michaan, who also co-founded and runs the popular Alameda Point Antique Faire, this is more than just selling vintage fashion treasures, it’s a happening.

“This event is the fastest growing vintage clothing event on the West Coast,” says Ms. Michaan. “We provide our customers and the fashion industry with high-quality, rare vintage clothing and celebrate vintage with a different theme party every 6 months.”

The theme this time around is 1940s/WWII/USO and on Friday evening, 6pm to 9pm there will be a vintage fashion contest. First prize is a $100 voucher to shop the show. Plus enjoy food and a no-host bar, and live entertainment by Tin Cup Serenade featuring singer Emily Ann Reed.  Fifty dealers will be selling items from the Victorian era right up to the 1990s (I guess that’s vintage now). Please note that Friday evening is 21 and over only.

Saturday is the big shopping day but the theme continues for anyone wanting to dress in their 40s best. Or any era or even better, get creative and mix it up. Dealers include my pals Barbara Grigg from Vintage Vogue and Jula and Roberto from City Vintage.

The Alameda Point Fashion Faire – Friday, June 13, 6pm-9pm and Saturday, June 14th 11am-5pm. Ten dollars on Friday, which includes reentry on Saturday. Five dollars on Saturday. Michaan’s Annex Auction Showroom, 2701 Monarch Way, Alameda, CA.

Be there or be square.”

All the sewing I can do before we do a trial run (or until someone gives another section back to me) is complete. Not that I’m short things to do. My next step will be calculating the stripe pattern for painting.

…one 8 gore skirt, one pair of bloomers and two pairs of pants. Yesterday I serged them all. Today I will sew as much as I can.
