It's that time of year again! For anyone who is from Fremont or Lives in Fremont now, chances are you are well aware of the Niles Flea Market every year in August. It is honestly one of my favorite things Fremont has to offer. Being the oldest and most historic place in Fremont (Charlie Chaplin used to reside here!), Niles is home to countless antique and vintage clothing shops. During the flea market once a year, antique vendors from all over the Bay Area set up shop on Niles Blvd. to sell their treasures.
Last year, I was on the prowl for a cameo necklace. I had seen a few at a couple stores, but with the flea market right around the corner I knew I'd be able to find a vintage piece. Sure enough, I found the PERFECT gold vintage cameo and it only set me back $8. I was also lucky enough to find this beautiful vintage gold beaded bag. In such perfect condition, this bag is the perfect element to a cornucopia of outfits. The price? $15!
Come on guys, you can't even beat these prices at Forever 21. I just recently saw a beaded bag there for $24.95 (one of the more expensive items in the store).
I recommend stopping by the Niles Flea Market to anyone who is in the Bay Area Sunday, August 28. You really never know what goodies you may find! And vintage accessories are so unique, you know only you will have it.
