You’ve finished watching Tidying Up on Netflix and purging your closet of things that don’t bring you joy; now it’s time to restock with the dreamy vintage pieces you’ve always wanted. Next stop: the Alameda Point Vintage Fashion Faire. The vintage fashion sale happens twice a year—in the spring and the fall—and the spring installment is coming up on March 15-16 at Michaan’s Annex Auction (2701 Monarch Street in Alameda).

This month’s expo will have more than 70 vintage vendors with pieces from the 40s to 80s. But the faire is more than just another shopportunity; it’s a scene for major style inspo. Friday evening festivities include a cocktail party, music from The Steve Lucky & Carmen Getit Show, and a Rock Around the Frock outfit contest starting at 6 pm. (Top prize: $100 to shop the show.) There will also be live music and cocktails poured by Stookey's Club Moderne.

Shopping hours are 6 pm-10 pm Friday and 11 am–5 pm Saturday. Friday night tickets, available through Brown Paper Tickets, are $16.52 (including fees) in advance, or $20 at the door. (Friday night tickets also include a readmit pass for Saturday shopping.) Saturday admission is just $5 all day.
