Antiques, collectibles, knick-knacks and more await the purveyor of antiquities and retro collectors at the La Mesa Village 11th Anniversary Antique Street Faire this weekend on Sunday, May 18.

Considered a step back in time to the old fashioned Midwest flea markets, 100 appraisal, art and antique booths will open doors and have displays in the streets from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The city will close La Mesa Blvd., allowing vendors and patrons to wander through the wares, stores, enjoy live music and entertainment. Along with the festivities on the streets, local restaurants, coffee shops and pubs are ready with specials for the expected large crowd.

Antique Alley, in the heart of the Village is participating in the faire, with antiques and collectibles available in store and in booths out on the streets. Owner Cindy Puente will mind the store while her daughter Aymee Davis will man the booths in the streets. Davis said the event is always a success and brings people looking for the best deal on antiques, retro collectibles that will someday be an antique and in her experience, many people looking for odd trinkets for special arts and school projects.

Davis said Antique Alley gets its collectibles throughout San Diego County, and recently returned from Albuquerque, with a great selection from an estate sale.

“This is the perfect place to find anything that is funky, fashionable or high dining,” she said.

Buying, selling and taking on consignments, Antique Alley is just one of the antique and collectible vendors participating in the Street Faire this year.
