Vintage Paper FairSan Francisco County Fair Building
1199 9th Ave, San Francisco, CA
Appealing to history buffs, decorators, and retro-revivalists alike, the bi-annual Vintage Paper Fair is a nice way to spend a few hours on a weekend. The colorful ephemera spread across the vendors' tables range from saucy 1920s Valentines and large antique advertisements to autographed headshots of Hollywood legends and scenic stereoscope photo cards. Event promoter Hal Lutsky is on hand to offer an appraisal of your timeless treasures, and most vendors are happy to chat about their favorite obsessions.
