Join us for our first ever Type Camp trek through this Bay Area treasure of an antiques faire/flea market situated on a retired naval base with sweeping panoramic views of the San Franciso Bay. We will look at all the vintage type amongst the stalls, discuss the origins and history of the type we discover, and be on hand to answer questions for all of it.
