Frequently asked questions when attending Remnants of the Past Vintage Show.

Hi Everyone!

I cannot believe that Remnants is this Friday! Below are the most frequently asked questions when attending Remnants of the Past Vintage Show.

What Gate will I enter?

From Fairview Rd., enter Gate 3 and from Arlington Dr., enter Gate 4.

May I purchase Early Bird Tickets at the gate?
Remnants would like everyone to have a chance at all the fabulous merchandise. There are many ways to buy tickets.  You can buy online, HERE. This will allow you to get right into the entry line and avoid the ticket line the day of the event.  New this year is an “Early Bird Ticket”. I have had so many requests from customers to have one hour to shop early. This ticket is good on Friday ONLY. Cash or credit card accepted ONLY.  You can avoid this line by purchasing early HERE. So excited to have you attend!

Is there a charge for children’s tickets?
Children under 12 are FREE.

Are strollers allowed?
It is very difficult to shop the Remnants with babies and small children. Parents are cautioned that strollers are very difficult to navigate with during peak times; Remnants of the Past strongly urges you to leave all single and double strollers at home. If you must shop with your child, baby packs are highly advised.

Are shopping carts allowed?
It is very difficult to shop the Remnants of the Past with shopping carts.  It is hard to navigate with your cart during peak times; Remnants of the Past strongly urges you to leave your cart at home. Backpacks are advised as an alternative. We will be having a Package Check run by With Hope Foundation where you can safely leave your packages for a small donation.

May I bring my pet?
Dogs and other pets are not allowed on site, with the exception of service dogs.

Does bad weather affect Remnants of the Past?
Remnants of the Past is a Rain or Shine event.

Do I have to pay for parking?
Yes, parking is additional and provided by OC Fair & Event Center.  Parking is $8.00.

Do vendors take credit cards?
Some vendors do accept credit cards, but be prepared to pay with cash or check, as many do not.  There are ATM machines available.

Do vendors restock their booths during the event?
What you need to know about the vendors at Remnants of the Past is that they were all hand chosen by me. They all have so much talent and are curating amazing items to fill their spaces. The majority of what you will find is one-of-a-kind items. They may be repurposed vintage treasures or architectural salvaged from the south of France. If you see something that you love,  I suggest you buy it when you see it. We have thousands of like-minded buyers attending and the vendors work really hard on finding the unique treasures made available for you at Remnants of the Past. The vendors expect a lot of traffic and they will constantly be re-stocking their spaces with other unique one-of-a-kind treasures. Do not miss yours.

Will there be food available?
A gourmet selection of food will be available for purchase. A full bar will be available, too.

May I have my purchase delivered?
Yes!  We will have Johnevieve available for local delivery.

May I take pictures?
We recommend asking permission from each vendor to take photos of their booths.

Tickets may be purchased at the gate or online HERE.

I am so excited to be in Costa Mesa!  Come be inspired!
