Vintage California Rocks

We finally made it to Vintage California and are we glad we did. Located at 305 E. Grove in the City of Orange, CA. it is like an indoor flea market (only a good one). It has individual booths for each vendor that are restyled and refreshed constantly. In fact we saw several vendors when we were there, working away. The store starts out with several huge outdoor light poles done in an aqua color in the first booth facing the front window. If I only had a place for one, what a statement in a backyard or driveway entrance they would make.  Vintage California

The City of Orange has a downtown circle, a roundabout, and many businesses are down there. It is such a beautiful place with lots of houses worth visiting, Victorian and bungalows abound. The neighborhoods are darling. We like to drive around just to look at them. Restaurants are all over the place and antique stores are on every block. One of our favorite stores we talk about a lot, Country Roads, is downtown. So plan to spend the day but don’t forget to wander over to Vintage California. It’s a short distance from the circle, maybe 5 minutes. It will be worth your visit.

Vintage CaliforniaWhile we were in Vintage California we were surprised to find a couple of our favorite vendors from flea markets are also selling in there. What a great idea to get your name and your treasures found. In fact we wanted to show you how a good dealer gets noticed and remembered so we included the shot of Anything Rustic’s booth. How to market yourself 101. Next we noticed Junk Yard Junky’s sign and booth. These girls know how to display! The other vendors did just as well. The whole time we were there we were saying “oh look at that” or “I need that”. We are so glad we found out about this place from our friend Maria, at Be U Accessories. That’s exactly how it should work, we should be telling each other about these great places, so they can stay in business. We keep saying “shop small business” and support these individuals. The phone number is 714-602-8998. Call them for hours and directions.

We will be going back. There’s this one thing I wanted….
