A Buyer’s Market
It always seemed odd to me that Riverside had no flea market. Sure, there are swap meets at local drive-ins, and yes, there are endless garage and estate sales held at private homes, but we’ve never had a flea market like those I love in Los Angeles and Orange Counties. Well, this Saturday we take a small step forward when Vintique Alley, a local vintage and antiques venue, has their first annual flea … But that’s not all: Rancho Reubidoux will be selling outdoor and garden items there, too!

Vintique Alley is a relatively new venue in town, specializing in vintage, cottage, French, industrial, handmade and home furnishings, including décor, personal items and accessories. Owner, Bobbi Vann, used to live in our neighborhood and was known for the awesome block sales she held several times a year; I was sad when she moved away last year. When I learned she was returning, as well as opening her own shop here a few months ago, I was pretty excited … I was even more elated when she offered me a chance to bring some things down on consignment. Saturday’s flea market will be held both indoors and out; my items will be on display in the rear parking lot, along with other outdoor and garden items. The sale will begin at 8 a.m. and I plan to be there until it ends at 3 p.m.; I invite all of you to come by and buy, or just say hello. I will be offering an assortment of items, including furniture and planters (see photo), and some industrial and farm items. There may even be a project or two available for sale. Deals will be made … Here are the particulars:
