Introducing… the SOCO + The OC Mix Blog!
Since we are unable to gather at the center, the SOCO + The OC Mix Blog was created as a way to stay united virtually. New posts will be published twice per week to keep the Orange County community and beyond up to date on all of the latest offerings, design trends, must-have items, food specials, and more from all of the businesses at SOCO + The OC Mix. Be one of the first to check out the first two posts here and come back for more content later this week!
