33rd Annual Bay Area Miniaturists Potluck & Flea Market

The 33rd Annual Bay Area Miniaturists Potluck & Flea Market was held Saturday, November 10th at the College Heights Church in San Mateo, CA. An annual NAME event sponsored by the Wee Housers Club, it is not limited to NAME members. Everyone is requested to bring a Potluck Dish to share. Attendees eat first. Then the tables are cleared off and everyone puts out what they brought to sell. It is a wonderful opportunity to sell, buy, or just visit with old friends.
