Old-fashioned glam and styles from another era took over The O Room during the recent Alameda Point Vintage Fashion Faire, a semi-annual event co-founded by Sandra Michan (check Sandra’s vintage shopping tips). In the mix? Everything from neckties to housewares to dress patterns.
Inside the O Room, itself a vintage-lover’s dream with swanky chandeliers shining from the ceiling and soft music playing faintly in the background, there was a wide range of garments, accessories, crafts and other treasures for ogling and perusing.
Read on for some of our favorites from this year’s Faire:
