Antiques Addicts, Get Your Fix at @ This Weekend's 20th Century Modernism Show & Sale

San Francisco is not a city short on antiques fairs. For starters, there's old faithful in Alameda and the new upstart at Candlestick Park, both of which occur monthly. And if you attend just those two with any regularity, you know how quickly you can become addicted to going. So what's an antique addict to do on the off-weeks between events? This weekend offers just the ticket, with the annual 20th Century Modernism Show & Sale pulling into Herbst Pavillion in Fort Mason.

Put on your Shopping Shoes: White Elephant Sale and Alameda this Weekend

Need to find a dining table, redecorate a room, or hell, furnish an apartment from top down? This is your weekend. Being the first Sunday of the month, of course you can head over to Alameda for the monthly flea. There's always plenty to discover, and now that the weather is (hopefully) giving us a few days of sunshine, it could be the perfect time to catch up on finds that may have eluded you during the copious downpours endured these past two months.
