Benicia Peddlers’ Fair
Starting originally in 1963 with a few collectible and antique stores displaying their items on tables outside St Paul’s Church, this event now attracts 300 select antique and collectible dealers from all over the country, as well as thousands of loyal fans. It covers the entire 11 Blocks of First Street in the historic town of Benicia with beautiful views of the Carquinez Strait. It is now more of a shopping experience and bargain hunter’s paradise than a church parking lot sale.
The show offers connoisseurs and new collectors alike an opportunity to examine and purchase items that include period furniture, decorative antiques, vintage textiles and fashion, pottery, porcelain, pink and blue depression glass, paintings, prints, jewelry, clocks, watches, treen and much, much more. The fair gives the public a rare opportunity to ask questions from knowledgeable dealers and witness firsthand the rare history of our great country.
