Flying Miz Daisy Vintage Market with 75 vendors coming to fairgrounds
A vintage market featuring some 75 West Coast vendors opens Aug. 25-26 at The Hangar O.C. Fair and Event Center in Costa Mesa.
The Flying Miz Daisy Vintage Market is the creation of Charlene Goetz, who started the market as Driving Miz Daisy in San Juan Capistrano before moving it to Saddleback College in Mission Viejo. The market at Saddleback was sold to Goetz’s partner and renamed.
The Costa Mesa market will have entertainment, food and drinks and lots of vintage goods. Items available include home décor, jewelry and accessories.
“When I had been looking for a venue in Orange County it was tough,” Goetz said. “I wanted to find an indoor, air conditioned venue. A lot of times, I’ve run outdoor markets and it was really tough dealing with the weather and the elements.”
The name comes from Goetz’s vintage trailer, named Daisy. Goetz uses Daisy as a mobile office. Rosie, another vintage trailer, will be at The Hangar as well.
“Each space is like its own brick and mortar store,” Goetz said. “They are all going to be unique and have quality vintage and antique goods. It will all be true vintage. There won’t be handmade things, but more repurposed. They are all handpicked exhibitors.”
Goetz said there are limited numbers of vendors per style or type of goods they sell.
“It’s things you won’t see in retail stores,” she said. “I love to see how the vendors blend modern with vintage. It’s something people can incorporate into their lives and homes. It’s not something you’re going to see in anyone else’s home. It’s very unique. I love that part.”
The market will offer customer pickup and dropoff and have a storage area for customers to leave items while they continue shopping.
Tickets to the market cost $8.
Hours are 3-9 p.m. Friday, Aug. 25 and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 26.
Goetz said the market will host quarterly events, the next being Dec. 1-2 at The Hangar.
