How would you like it if there was a vintage market five miles from your house and it was held every month, had free admission, free parking and over 100 vendors selling amazing vintage merchandise? Well, that’s my life and The Coast Vintage Market
is just that market. The Coast is located on the campus of Saddleback College in Mission Viejo, California and is held on the second Sunday of each month.
This is one of my favorite vintage markets which I’ve been attending for many years. It’s so wonderful to get to know the dealers and see so many familiar faces each month. I usually arrive around 7:30am and most of the dealers are set up and ready to sell (which I like since I’m an early bird).
The show is held in one of the parking lots at Saddleback College and there is ample parking for shoppers. In addition to the vendors booths, the market also has food trucks for breakfast or lunch and usually has a live band playing. Vintage car collectors also come to the market to park and display their vintage cars. It’s a very relaxed vibe.
If you’re ever in the area, I highly recommend this vintage market. I’ve found so many wonderful treasures there and always look forward to finding more. There’s nothing like that feeling of parking and walking towards the market and the anticipation of not knowing what you’ll find.
I’ve also sold at this market a couple of times and love doing it. Hopefully, I’ll be back in October to sell again and I hope to see you there!
The next show is on Sunday, September 8th.
