Go treasure hunting at these outstanding flea and antique markets across the U.S.

Alameda Point Antiques Faire, CA

8 of 14

With its unmatched user-friendliness (free shuttles from the rear parking lot, shopping carts, an all-marble bathroom in the new Auction Annex), it’s no wonder this 800-vendor sale has been a northern California favorite for 15 years. But even stripped of those creature comforts, the 13,000 regular shoppers would still turn out for the impeccably art-directed displays of antique French furniture, Bakelite serving trays, and metal sign letters—plus views of the San Francisco skyline just across the bay.

Tip: Head to the back of the market for better deals. That’s where the newbies and latecomers, who tend to have lower prices than the pros, are assigned to set up.

Alamedapointantiquesfaire.com; first Sunday of each month; 6 a.m.–3 p.m. Admission $15 before 7:30 a.m., $10 from 7:30 to 9 a.m., $5 from 9 a.m.–2 p.m.; free parking.
