Sacramento Antique Market

This past weekend I went to the Sacramento Antique Faire, under the freeway just north of Broadway. It's really grown over the years - they now take up two whole parking lots, almost completely protected from the rain, and have some really excellent dealers taking part. I saw lots and lots of Bauer and other depressionware in excellent condition and at very good prices, and one dealer - whose name I neglected to get - had a terrific selection of Roycroft copper, Grueby and Newcomb and other art pottery, and one of the prettiest pieces of A&C metal I've ever seen - a silver on green bronze Heintz inkwell.

With the exception of one angry dealer who wouldn't allow photos to be taken even though the Faire is on public property (apparently he had fallen prey in the past to some kind of Ebay scam, where people used photos of his work to advertise things they didn't even have to sell) - he made me delete the photographs - everyone I met was wonderful and wanted to talk about what they collected and sold. The fair is held the second Sunday of every month and is definitely worth a visit should you be within an hour or two of Sacramento.
