When it comes to Portland’s shopping scene, we love a good treasure hunt — and a good bargain. Our city is home to several stellar swap meets, cool co-ops, fabulous vintage shops, and resale gems. So get in, we’re going shopping.
Portland Flea, 721 NW Ninth Ave. + 240 SE Clay St.
Held the last weekend of the month from April through October, this flea market brings together 80+ local artists, makers, and curators of vintage, handmade, and locally sourced goods — and plenty of food and drink vendors to fuel your treasure hunt.
Downtown Flea, Pioneer Place, second floor, 340 SW Morrison St.
This pop-up by Portland Vintage Market is open on various weekends year-round and features dozens of vendors offering unique vintage art, clothing, music, home decor, and more.
Rose City Vintage Market, Portland Expo Center, 2060 N. Marine Dr.
Shop for antiques, collectibles, clothing, accessories, art, toys, and more at this two-day flea market taking place Saturday, Oct. 21 and Sunday, Oct. 22.
Kissing Booth, 1111 SW Alder St.
Started by a small group of fashion-forward friends, this shop and online store sells used clothing that can, admittedly, cost more than buying new — but you probably won’t find the same garments anywhere else. A must-see if you’re looking for military jackets, classic sweaters, or midcentury threads.
Looking Sideways Vintage, 914 NE 28th Ave.
Little shop, big personality. If you felt overwhelmed by the size of Hollywood Vintage across the street, this hole-in-the-wall with quirky items (clown masks, studded chokers, pins, etc.) will be a welcome respite. Did we mention Benny the shop dog?
Hello Sunshine Art + Vintage, 3022 E. Burnside St.
This colorful, groovy space (with pink floors) is home to a handful of female and nonbinary vendors offering items from the ‘60s, ‘70s, and ‘80s. Think: Disco ball earrings, flared jeans, and sheer wraps.
Program Shop, 2122 SE Division St.
A three-tiered, sliding-scale pricing system makes shopping at this spot an inclusive experience for all. Dozens of vendors and artists on site mean a broad range of styles and aesthetics, whether you’re looking for clothing, home decor, furniture, or books. You’ll also find services like clothing alterations, tattooing, and personal styling.
Back To The Basket, 3405 SE Hawthorne Blvd.
Shop for vintage basketball apparel, accessories, collectibles, novelty items, and sneakers at this throwback shop that may leave you feeling a bit nostalgic.
Average Joe’s Vintage Collective, 2407 NE Alberta St.
A relative newcomer to Portland’s vintage shopping scene, this store embraces PNW culture and specializes in clothing made in the US, home decor, classic rock records, and wall art.
