Old Towne Orange California is a quaint historic district. On the weekends you are sure to see people walking their dogs or strollers, or see families or old friends chatting at a table having breakfast or brunch at one of the nearby cafes. This one square mile of neighborhood comprises architectural style from 1888 to 1940.
My favorite part of Old Towne Orange is the Orange Flea Market on the second Saturday of every month. There is always parking and the walk is nice as you can enjoy the craftsman, Victorian, or bungalow style homes, or the old churches and post office.
Although the Orange Flea Market is only a few rows, the selection of furniture, collectibles, vintage clothing and antiques is quite worth the trip. There are also booths selling baked goods where one hundred percent of the proceeds go to local charities. The vendors are so helpful and approachable and won’t think twice about helping you load your purchases in your car (I know this from experience ).
My favorite vendor, Tyler, has the most amazing industrial style pieces and is there every month. Here are few pictures of what I purchased on my last trip. The card catalog drawers are perfect for my craft supplies.
The hours of the Orange Flea Market are from 7am to 4pm. It is located at 146 N. Grand Street, Orange California 92866. Admission and parking is free. Check out the website and you will find helpful tips on flea market décor style written by Michelle Davidson. Oh yeah… they are pet friendly too!
