Parish collectibles show returning to Pacifica, Calif.

PACIFICA, Calif. — The St. Peter Antique and Collectibles Show is returning to 700 Oddstad Blvd. in Pacifica, California, for the second year. (Pacifica is just 12 miles south of San Francisco.)

Like many churches and parishes, St. Peter Catholic Church of Pacifica, California, found that required funding for capital improvements and maintenance outstripped the church’s annual income, resulting in the fundraiser show organized by veteran antiques show vendors Dale and Charleene Smith, parish members and owners of Charleene’s Jewels of Pacifica. By creating a show with a friendly atmosphere and tapping into their professional dealer contacts, the first show was a great success.

This year’s show will be even bigger and better with more vendors and better publicity. Vendors will be displaying Native American art and jewelry, glassware, linens, coins and silver, rare books, prints and maps, antique lamps and just plain old and interesting items. Food service will also be more extensive than that provided last year, with traditional as well as healthy options. A hospitality table will provide information about hotels, restaurants (including menus) and other community activities.

Although many vendors have reserved their spaces from last year, some spaces are still available. A basic space is 10 1/2 feet by 10 1/2 feet; chairs and electricity are provided; tables are available for rent. Indoor spaces are $100 or $120, depending on the number of aisle facing sides; outdoor spaces are $85 for both days, or $60 for one day. There is a 20
