Peddlers' Fair

Benicia's Peddlers' Fair started in 1963 as a small collectibles sale outside of the First Street St. Pauls Church.

Over the years the fair has grown to an 11 block event with about 300 vendors. Wow!

Kerry and I went down this year and explored the antique booths (and ignored the knick-knack booths)

Puppy in a drawer?

I ended up buying a neat vintage children's book print.

And these Charles Dickens drawing prints by "KYD" aka Joseph Clayton Clarke. We immediately ran over to Target and picked up these frames for next to nothing and now the look is complete! I love them.
