We went to Treasure Island last Saturday. Actually our first visit, since we just tend to just pass through Bay Bridge as we head out to San Francisco. We saw online they have once a month Flea Market every end of the month. I hope the flea market continues on, have read a lot of renovation, relocation issues and stuff going on in this area.

It was a lovely Fall weekend too, temps not too hot or too cold, just perfect to be out!

Really enjoyed the plants on sale, since most are Tillandsias and succulents Lovey dubby
Lovely tillies!

A lot of succulent assortment, and price was good!

my new tillies!

I made a wreath on some of the tillies, will just bring in the tilly wreath indoors when overnight temps go lower than 50F, but for now they can still hang there by the door.

I sure do miss the Bay Area !...and envy your day out celebrating Fall weather. The plant stop is just your kind of place, it would be hard to have money left over to go any farther...lol..

Beautiful day here also...I'm digging...though I would rather go somewhere....
I could be wrong...

looks like fun! Better prices on those plants than nursery prices too.

Yes! I enjoyed the prices of the plants a lot! Too bad there were no labels but it's okay, I am familiar with most of them.

Finally found a way to display the bigger Tillandsia I got. When a flame looks green! Big Grin
