Is your broke-ass burning to score some  treasures on the cheap? This Saturday, August 18, 2012, you’re in luck! The Alamo Square Neighborhood Association (ASNA) presents the 29th Annual Alamo Square Flea Market.
The Alamo Square Flea Market features great antiques, estate pieces, and handmade items. Check out vintage items, art, and crafts from Alamo Square neighbors and local artisans. Vendors will surround the park on Fulton, Scott, and Hayes Streets from 9:00am to 3:00pm.

You may as well indulge in some cheap eats to maintain your appetite for shopping. Off The Grid is providing street food from gourmet food trucks, and the Creative Arts Charter School is creating a dedicated kid craft area featuring bubble painting, still-life drawing, and face painting on Grove Street near Scott Street. You can also enter to win a whole bunch of awesome prize’s from local shops and restaurants like Little Star Pizza, and you can even adopt a dog from Rocket Dog Rescue!

If you are a broke-ass with a big heart, you should probably know that The Alamo Square Flea Market is the Alamo Square Neighborhood Association’s biggest and oldest community event and fundraiser. It supports the maintenance of and improvements to the park that is our namesake and the preservation of the historic character of our neighborhood. It helps fund neighborhood safety, traffic calming, beautification projects, community socials in the park, and our bi-monthly newsletter. ASNA is a nonprofit, and all donations are tax deductible.

Heidi Smith - The Ultimate Scavenger

Heidi Smith - The Ultimate Scavenger

Originally from San Diego, Heidi migrated north to study journalism at SFSU and interned for the SF Bay Guardian writing music stuff. She later embarked on a study-abroad program in both Denmark and Holland, and basically never came home. For six long years, she froze her ass off in Oslo, Norway, pretending to be a viking princess, trying to figure out how to survive in the most expensive city in the world. The other two years were spent frolicking on the beach in Spain - sipping on sangria in between being tossed around Europe working as a stressed-out journalist. Heidi currently works at for a non-profit cultural exchange program, helping others experience life from a different perspective. She is thrilled to be back in SF, magnetizing the obscure, and scavenging the city for fun, free things to do.
