It was mostly ladies wear. I was hoping to find more menswear.
And from the photo attached to the event, it looked like there would be some furniture and decorating items, but it was mostly clothing and jewerly. I shop the antiquemart at Veteran's Stadium (with free parking) and find much more to choose from. It was ok - but not great.

I was so upset that I missed the event because the reminder was directed to my spam inbox (I blame Yahoo). I happen to discover this finding, a day too late. And 'm unable to receive a refund or credit for my purchase that i didn't use.

About the Ticket Supplier: Vintage Expositions, Inc.The first Vintage Fashion Expo took place in January, 1988 in Oakland - conceived by three partners at a time when there was only one other vintage show in the country, in Massachusetts. These three noticed the intense interest in the older fashions, clothes and accessories on the part of many women (and men), often in connection with antique dolls and other old toys. Just one year later it had grown to be the largest vintage clothing show in the nation (more eastern shows had begun). It continues today as one of the nation's largest and most varied vintage fashion shows, and the longest running, two-day vintage fashion show in the country.
Five weekend Expos are staged annually in California, two in San Francisco at The Concourse Exhibition Center on 8th and Brannan Streets, and three in Santa Monica at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium at Main and Pico. These shows are an integral part of California's fashion scene and draw celebrities who love vintage, fashion designers who appreciate and utilize vintage, movie costumers and costume designers, and youngsters and oldsters who appreciate the uniqueness and quality of these vintage fashions.
Each Expo includes 75 to 100 dealers from across the country and the clothing, textiles, jewelry, and accessories they offer for sale cover a span of more than 125 years as diverse as the repressed Victorian era, the Roaring Twenties, the humorous platform-shoe/hip-hugging era of the 1970s and the more recent Retro Styles sought by today's fashion-conscious teens and twenty-somethings.
