portland thrift + vintage shop guide

It's true what they say: Portland is a vintage lover's mecca. I frequently bounce between estate sales, thrift shops, and antique/vintage stores when I'm out sourcing for goods. This list will cover the latter two.


  • Goodwill Industries of the Columbia Willamette
    1943 SE 6th Ave, Portland, OR 97214

A massive Goodwill with everything from home decor, furniture, clothing, books, and their boutique section. The prices are higher than other Goodwills in the area, but on a lucky day you can really score big here.


Stars & Splendid spans two buildings across SE Milwaukie Ave., so make sure you visit both and give yourself plenty of time! The store includes vendors selling from multiple eras including true antiques to midcentury to contemporary and everything in between. 


  • Urbanite
    1005 SE Grand Ave, Portland, OR 97214
Urbanite is a store specializing in curated vintage furniture, home goods, textiles, and clothing, plus newer items from local small businesses that make great gifts. Designers frequently shop here for one-of-a-kind pieces for projects, which speaks to the caliber of what this stores typically carries.

    A gem of a shop specializing in curated vintage clothing and homewares. The clothing vendors here are some of my favorites in Portland, and owner Bree is hilarious and witty. The shop was featured on Discovery+'s mini series Storefront Stories and is worth a visit if you're looking for a one-of-a-kind "new" outfit.


    Another beautifully curated antique mall in Portland that includes a garden section in the back. They carry beautiful vintage furniture and home decor, and have an in-house café if you find yourself famished from all the vintage shopping you've been doing.


    Hippo Hardware specializes in salvaging architectural goods, including antique and reproduction lighting, plumbing, architecture, and hardware. If you own an old home, chances are they carry that weirdly specific piece of whatever you're looking for. If you need something unique for your home project, this is definitely the place to shop.
