I love Old Town Tustin. It has a certain allure that makes you want to walk around for hours. It almost feels like you are living in a different time period. From the architecture, both new and old, to the vintage artwork painted on fences or buildings, Old Town Tustin is quite charming. There is always something going on during the weekends, whether it is a celebration parade, chili cook-off, art walk, or vintage flea market.
There is a small shopping center off El Camino Real and Main Street called Jamestown Village. It is filled with restaurants, gift, and antique shops. You can even stop and take a picture of a tiny old chapel located in the middle of the parking lot.
My favorite thing about Jamestown Village is the monthly vintage flea market. It’s not too big and not too small. All the vendors are friendly and they don’t mind you wheeling and dealing. You can find antiques, vintage toys, collectibles, furniture, dolls, industrial pieces, clothing, handmade jewelry and other gifts.
The flea market is hosted by an adorable vintage gift shop called, Whimzy where you can buy things both old and new. It has a shabby chic vintage glam feel. Every time I step inside I get sense of community, as there are always fellow crafters, collectors, or shop owners (not that I’m eavesdropping or anything!).
The Jamestown Village Vintage Flea Market on the 4th Sunday of every month on El Camino Real in Old Town in Tustin, California from 8AM-3PM, rain or shine. Check it out! Oh! And parking is free!
