A permanent antiques and vintage goods market with more than 80 stalls is set for Orange.

The market would operate seven days a week in a Byng Street building that has been empty for several years.

Dirty Janes, which currently operates in Bowral and Canberra, would establish its third location in the former PCYC building - which is part of the Orange Ex-Services’ Club complex - if a development application currently on public exhibition is approved by Orange City Council.

A café would also be installed in the building, which would be modified for the proposed markets use.

The DA states the stalls would range in size from glass showcases to 40 square metres and would be leased by individual business operators.

“Stallholders rent spaces from us that become the bricks and mortar shopfront for their business. All stallholders are interviewed and undertake an induction process before they are accepted within Dirty Janes.

"We are looking for high quality, unique, often handmade products. We are open 7 days each week from 10am to 5pm. Our staff, led by a store manager provide, customer service each day. The stallholders are not on site to operate their stalls.”

A total of 85 sites would be included in the business.

One current Dirty Janes’ stallholder has already announced it will be part of the proposed Orange business.

Sydney-based hand-made goods dealer The Inspired Paddock’s website says it is coming to Orange in mid-2023.

“The Dirty Janes vintage emporiums are expanding again, this time into fabulous Orange. The Inspired Paddock will of course be setting up shop within the new site,” it says.

The DA is on exhibition for public comment until February 10.
