Mari Lewis is the Official Costumed Walkabout Event Coordinator for this

the Del Mar Antiques & Collectibles Show. This Walkabout theme will be
EGADS! IT'S STEAMPUNK!
Come on down and show off your Steamy best! There will be raffle prizes
among us (not the public). Cindy P and Valerie L both won $25 gift
certificates at the last show and bought some cool things for their
costumes from the vendors at this Show. There are some surprisingly
affordable things there for all who attend.
The best part is getting to show off all the hard work that everyone
puts into their costumes! A great place to show off, be seen, be
photographed and find some great treasures. For those new to Steampunk,
there are many photos of our Steampunk gear, fashion and events at
and visit the Photo Gallery.
We do need to know how many people are attending on this date, since the
manager sets space aside for us, tables and chairs and goodie bags.
There will be Steammie raffles, gift certificates and more! There are
food and beverage vendors at the show to complete your enjoyment.
This show is host to two HUGE buildings stocked full of wonderful and
knowledgeable vendors of antiques, collectibles and knick-knacks. You
are sure to find many treasures (and just as many KODAK moments)!
