All your holiday shopping needs and a little something for yourself at the Treasure Island Flea
In 1939, Treasure Island was built to house the World's Fair. After the exhibition ended, the island was used as a navy outpost and to this day suffers from the pollution left behind from that era. But these days, the little manmade structure's party-pad roots are also being revived, thanks in no small part to the celebrated Treasure Island Flea, where you can do some knickknack-browsing with breathtaking views of the bay at this monthly flea market of epic proportion. Arrive right at 10am for first picks, though rest assured that there's never any shortage of wares to browse or characters to meet.
