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.

Vintage shops

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.

Resale and consignment shops

Give & Take Resale, 8128 N. Denver Ave.
This woman-founded business is known for its clean, relaxed atmosphere, friendly vibes, and carefully curated items with fair prices. You can make an appointment to consign furniture or children’s and men’s items.

Take It Or Leave It, 5012 NE 42nd Ave.
A sister shop of Give & Take Resale, this store sells higher-quality brands of clothing for men, women, and kids. Shoppers praise its friendly staff, frequently rotated inventory, and dressing rooms with flattering lighting.

Artifact Creative Recycle, 3630 SE Division St.
Embark on a fun treasure hunt at this quirky, hip boutique that sells vintage and modern clothing, shoes, furniture, and art. You can schedule an appointment to bring items for appraisal and consignment, and don’t miss the store’s Funday Flea sales in the summer where everything is $1.
