Retro 🛍️ shoppers looking for that rare 💍 pearl? 7 ways to 👉 get your vintage on

Lovers of retro trends looking for that rare pearl? We have a  selection of unmissable vintage addresses in south and east Portland—and a few miles further down—for those who just want to make a day of it.

Vintage shops are the highlights of many neighborhoods – and sometimes a neighborhood’s best kept secret. Our flea markets, second-hand shops, thrift stores and antique dealers are overflowing with design and fashion treasures from all over the Pacific Northwest. Whether they’ve been recycled and transformed, or rebought and dusted off, south and east Portland offers perfect opportunities for treasure hunting. All of these stores offer furniture and clothing, of course, but we thought we’d dig a little more to show you the other types of items and collections you might find.
