Sneak Peak at OC Mart Mix


Come join us at the oc mart MIX one-day sneak peak shopping event Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. The oc mart MIX is a great new gathering of amazing vendors at the newly revamped (and super cool) South Coast Collection (affectionately referred to as SOCO) in Costa Mesa.

The best part is that while you enjoy shopping, sipping on complimentary wine and nibbling treats, the entire event benefits Greer’s OC favorite charity the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).

You can even have a stylish Paul Mitchell haircut for just a $10 donation to JDRF from noon to 4 p.m.

There’s nothing else like the oc mart MIX in Orange County. Under one roof you can find vintage treasures curated from flea markets at Macalistaire at 1850; chic men’s and women’s hats at the Hat Rack; sophisticated, hip and affordable jewelry at STONED; one-off and original apparel from Generic Youth; fashionable paper goods with stylish gifts from The Paper House; couture and vintage bridal accessories from B. Bride; hip home decor from ornate home; and environmentally friendly and affordable fashions from Deer Lovely.

Wait, there’s so much more, including jewelry made out of 100% recycled paper by internally displaced women in Northern Uganda from 31 Bits; contemporary design products from Flourish; home furnishings for indoor and outdoor spaces from Gatehouse; California’s premier olive oil tasting bar from We Olive & Wine Bar; handcrafted all-organic line of specialty coffees from Portola Coffee; contemporary eyewear from Alexander Gray; custom hybrid bikes modeled after 1920’s racers from Derringer Cycle’s.

While browsing, be sure to check out b.candy, Longboards delicious ice cream, a display by Heritage Surf Museum and various artists showing their work, including Greer’s Kenyan friends Jack and Milly.

Please join us for this fun sneak preview by RSVPing to Gretchen at and the first 100 RSVPs receive a gift bag! See you there!
