A new ‘flea’ market will set up shop every third Saturday of the month beginning this month. The event is hosted by @patchesandpins_expo which primarily invites outsider small businesses to sell goods to different cities across the United States.

This new venture of local entrepreneurship comes after the @tianguis_market announced it was stopping operations in Santa Ana and put the blame at the City for its dissolve.

The monthly event is sponsored by @eastenddtsa and presented by the City of Santa Ana. According to their page, a variety of vendors will sell vintage items and clothing that appeals to hipster and relic-lovers.
