TreasureFest on Treasure Island
I cannot express to you just how much fun I had spending my Saturday afternoon moseying around TreasureFest. There are over 400 curated vendors, vintage collectors, and crafters, plus live music, cocktails, and some of the most popular food trucks in the area. If that isn't a recipe for a perfectly kick-back weekend, I don't know what is.
I managed to walk away that day with some pretty neat finds: a vintage houndstooth blazer, a few bags of California grown nuts and fruits, and a couple plants. Now, I was on a mission to find a succulent for my desk at work. I have to admit, I was a bit overwhelmed by the endless rows of greenery, but despite my plant-induced stress I found the PERFECT little plant. I was also obsessed with the copper ferris wheel which balanced tiny terracotta pots. I mean, how cute is that thing?
General admission is $3 so it's an inexpensive way to stay entertained and spend an afternoon outdoors. Lucky for me, I snagged 2 tickets that came with drink vouchers that could be redeemed at the cocktail bar (If you take a stroll to the bar, the Sangria is delish!). If you're interested in checking out the festival, keep in mind that it only occurs during the last weekend of the month. Tip: Plan to arrive sooner rather than later to avoid the traffic congestion. Dogs are welcome and as you'll see below, an adorable pup caught my camera's attention. The possible treasures you'll find while visiting the booths and tents are endless. And as always, I want to hear about your weekend adventures. Let me know what your experience was like going to a market like TreasureFest.
