The highlight of my weekend was going to the Treasure Island Flea! The Treasure Island Flea is one of my favorite monthly events in the Bay Area. The date varies because it takes place on the last full weekend of the month from 10AM-4PM. It costs $3 to get in but there's free parking and the event is dog-friendly. There are 400+ vendors for you to shop from ranging in new items, antiques, vintage, re-purposed, and so much more! In addition, there are DIY workshops and 25+ local food trucks for you to have lunch at when you're done shopping.
My favorite vendor by far is the one that sales succulents for dirt cheap prices! You can get mini ones for $1.50 each or 6 for $8. I grabbed a couple a few months back and couldn't help to add six more to my collection. I love how easy they are to maintain and how it adds subtle decoration to any room. I get enjoyment out of finding cute plant pots to re-pot these babies into.
When you take your time walking around, you can find a lot of beautiful treasures. I snapped this quick photo of some crystals and jewels that were laid out on a table available for purchase. I loved the variety of colors!
Pictured is a popular vintage item you'll find in many vendors, an old-school typewriter.
A quirky thing about this event is there's an on-the-go alcohol cart that roams through the shopping area to purchase drinks while you shop. There is a full alcohol stand at the market entrance but the cart is convenient for a refill while you shop so you don't have to make your way back to the beginning.
Last, the view of the San Francisco skyline is breathtaking from Treasure Island. I love going to the Treasure Island Flea monthly because you never know what kind of cool treasures you can find unless you search. Whether or not you bring something home, it's a fun event for the weekend. Does anyone else have a favorite flea market? I'd love to have some new ones on my radar!
