Not only is Pat one of the sweetest people in the world, she has an eye for the unique and wonderful.
Her loyal following of vendors from interior designers to shop owners patiently await for Pat to unload her truck the first Sunday of every month to see what gems she uncovers. From large funky props and garden statuary to shiny pieces of silver, her booth is just about cleaned out by the end of the day.
Pat's aesthetic can be seen in her 1940's Northern California cottage-style home. A clean neutral palette of whites, infused with bits of silver, sparkle and natural elements. Not overly done and very soothing to the eye. Pat does not like clutter!
Be sure and visit them at the Alameda Point Antiques Faire the first Sunday of every month, rain or shine. Booths number D01-02.
(And if you're a good little girl/boy, Pat will spoil you with a yummy loaf of pumpkin or banana bread during the holidays. Ssshhh...don't tell her that I'm spreading the word...)
