“The Find” is the place to find antiques in Oakland
on February 14, 2011
Bringing together antique-hunters and hipsters, there’s a new event in Oakland where you can find all the vintage gear you need. The Find, an antique fair held monthly in the Pavilion at Jack London Square, is a chance for Oaklanders to shop for old books and records, vintage clothes, handmade jewelry, refurbished birdhouses, and much more. Planners Tina Aiyer and Analisa Thompson deliberately placed the event indoors so it wouldn’t be vulnerable to the the bay’s unpredictable weather. Food vendors like Cholita Linda served up tacos and other snacks outside, while inside vendors competed for shoppers’ attention with each other and the one-man band playing banjo and drums while several children danced circles around him.
The Find, which started in December, is held on the second Saturday of every month at Jack London Square, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, visit their Facebook page.
