Stephen Kessler | Location of the farmers and the antique vendors

A downtown institution since 1993, the Antique Faire started out on Pacific Avenue and after a few months was moved by the Downtown Association to Lincoln Street; years later it was briefly transplanted to Cedar, where it withered for lack of foot traffic. It moved back to Lincoln in 2003 and has been thriving there ever since. “Moving us could kill the show,” organizer Bonnie Belcher told me. “We have to have visibility from the mall.” As the city is Belcher’s landlord, she has taken no public position on Measure O — the renovate-the-library, save-Lot-4-for-a-plaza, build-housing-elsewhere initiative — but she’s hoping to stay where she is.
