Save this to Pinterest for later, as I’ll add more as I discover them!
website | 1005 SE Grand Ave (get directions) | neighborhood: Buckman | best for: a mix of vintage, upcycled, and handmade goods
This popular lifestyle store in Portland stocks antiques and handmade goods for basically every taste. I make sure to stop here anytime I’m in town to peruse the cool vintage items, industrial goods, art, home decor, lighting, and more from over 54 small businesses who set up shop in Urbanite’s large warehouse space.
If you happen to be in the area at the right time, stop by the Second Sunday Flea Market. It’s held in the outdoor event space at Urbanite and you can grab fresh food, one-of-a-kind trinkets, and artisanal crafts from over 45 local vendors. Urbanite also hosts other pop-up markets and a monthly rotating fine art gallery, so keep an eye on their social media for updates.
Monticello Antique Marketplace
website | 8600 SE Stark St (get directions) | neighborhood: Montavilla | best for: unique pieces for the yard
Monticello Antique Marketplace is one of the largest antique shops in Portland. You can spend hours getting lost in this 20,000-square-foot showroom full of industrial goodies, mid century pieces, and more from over 100 dealers.
Once you’ve had your fill of the indoor decor, lighting, and furniture, stop by the Salvage Garden showroom. It’s a complete mecca for yard stuff. Lawn chairs, glassware, budget-friendly sculptures – you name it, they’ve probably got it. Everything’s on the shabby chic side, but each piece has a distinct air of charm about it that’ll add a touch of whimsy to any home.
If you’re feeling hungry after all that browsing, stop by Monti’s Café which is right onsite. It sells baked treats, coffees, alcohol, and classic lunch staples that’ll tide you over until dinnertime.
website | 2500 SE Hawthorne Blvd (get directions) | neighborhood: Buckman | best for: mid-century modern furniture and decor
Every time I’m in town for the weekend, I always make sure Vintage Pink is on my Portland itinerary. This is one of the best antique gift shops in Portland for mid century lovers. You can find all types of goodies here ranging from kitsch trinkets to stunning reclaimed furniture. I love how they arrange different vignettes to inspire how a piece could live in your space.
website |1426 SE Hawthorne Blvd (get directions) | neighborhood: Ladd’s Addition | best for: retro lighting
I came across Lounge Lizard by chance when I was walking through Ladd’s Addition and Buckman. It’s a used furniture emporium that’s been around since 2002 and it showcases a bunch of mid century goodies. But the showstopper here is the large collection of funky and retro lighting.
website | 1230 SE Grand Ave (get directions) | neighborhood: East Portland | best for: eclectic rugs
Wild Shaman is an East Portland gem and one of the best antique shops in Portland for vintage Anatolian kilims, décor, and rugs. As soon as you step through the doors, you’ll know this place is legit.
Everything is sourced directly from Turkey and the gorgeous rugs flank virtually every wall and floor throughout the store. I won’t lie – their rugs aren’t the cheapest. But there are a few options available that should suit most budgets.
website | 4011 N Williams Ave (get directions) | neighborhood: Boise | best for: vintage clothing and jewelry
I come to Workshop Vintage every time I’m itching for a new piece of artisan jewelry or a one-of-a-kind outfit. The shop is run by design geniuses Audra Santillo and Nate Moore who curate locally designed products and vintage clothing that you simply won’t find anywhere else.
Audra is the resident fashionista, but Nate’s amazing woodwork and geometric shelves add life and character to every wall. If you’re not feeling the vintage garb, you can pick up soy candles, retro greeting cards, and even tarot decks to impress folks back home.
House of Vintage
website | 3315 SE Hawthorne Blvd (get directions) | neighborhood: Hawthorne | best for: fashion through the decades
House of Vintage has an incredible range of vintage clothing, accessories, and footwear. The store spans 13,000 square feet and stocks products from over 60 dealers. I still have a pair of dope cowboy boots I found here almost a decade ago for $32, so I always stop here when I want to freshen up my wardrobe with a funky piece.
Although I’m usually rifling through the vintage clothing racks in search of a steal, you can also pick up pop culture collectibles, retro artwork, and classic furniture. If the stock itself wasn’t cool enough, House of Vintage has been a major supplier for shows like Portlandia and Grimm!
website |3630 SE Division St (get directions) | neighborhood: Belmont/Hawthorne | best for: well-curated consignment clothes
I never have trouble finding something cool at Artifact. They regularly restock their store with funky second-hand and consignment goods. The shop is mostly made up of clothing, but there are some decor pieces lining the shelves above the wall racks. There is also a back room that has great home decor finds, including rugs.
Star & Splendid Antique Mall
website | 7030 SE Milwaukie Ave (get directions) | neighborhood: Westmoreland | best for: a ton of vendors under one roof
Stars & Splendid is an enormous antique mall that sells vintage jewelry, homewares, and antiques from more than 200 local dealers. The store is open 7 days a week and spans two storefronts across the street from each other. You can check out their online catalog anytime, but there’s something special about combing every aisle.
website | 1960 SE Hawthorne Blvd (get directions) | neighborhood: Ladd’s Addition | best for: vintage apparel
Magpie has always been one of my all-time favorite antique shops in Portland. It specializes in men’s and women’s clothing, but you can also pick up hats, jewelry, and unique accessories to pull your outfit together. This place has been a mainstay on Hawthorne Boulevard. There are pieces that date back to the Civil War era all the way through the 1990s.
website | 225 NW 11th Ave (get directions) | neighborhood: Pearl District | best for: apothecary goods and delicate jewelry
I adore this apothecary and jewelry store in the Pearl District. The décor and layout are on the modern side, but it stocks a range of affordable antique pieces alongside hand-painted plant pots, artisan jewelry, natural deodorants, and other locally-made skincare items.
website | 4311 NE Prescott St (get directions) | neighborhood: Cully | best for: recycled furniture and metalwork classes
Metalwood Salvage may not look like much at first glance, but it sells some of the coolest industrial furnishings, sculptures, and light fixtures. They source scrap metal from waste streams and turn it into sustainable furniture using advanced woodworking and welding techniques.
You can try your hand at metalwork by taking one of their welding classes. They also host makers markets and night markets from April through August.
Old Portland Hardware & Architectural
website | 1667 SE Tacoma St (get directions) | neighborhood: Sellwood | best for: finishing touches
Probably second only to Monticello Antique Marketplace in size is the 10,000-square-foot Old Portland Hardware & Architectural. And believe me, it’s well worth exploring if you have a few hours to spare. This place is known for stocking a mishmash of surprisingly well-organized vintage hardware, stained-glass windows, antique light fittings, and quirky trinkets that’ll spice up any space. I wouldn’t say it’s the best antique shop in Portland to visit for furnishing an entire pad, but it’s incredible for those characterful finishing touches!
After you’ve finished shopping, you can head over to the Westmoreland Park Nature Playground to stretch your legs.
Kenton Antiques & Collectibles
website | 8112 N Denver Ave (get directions) | neighborhood: Kenton | best for: historical collectibles
Kenton Antiques & Collectibles sells eclectic vintage homeware, jewelry, and old-school oddities out of an enormous building. This is probably my favorite store in Portland, Oregon for historical collectibles as there’s something new popping up on their Facebook page almost every day. Postcards from the turn of the century? Check. Letters from 1950s deputies? You bet. Whatever you’re looking for, you’ll want to set aside a couple of hours for browsing as the inventory here is so unique.
website | 2000 NE 42nd Ave (get directions) | neighborhood: Hollywood | best for: kitsch goodies and oddities
I instantly feel a rush of joy every time I head to Antique Alley. It might be my inner shopaholic bursting out, but there’s something about grabbing kitsch antiques from a range of 95 dealers that just gets my blood pumping.
I tend to spend most of my time checking out the jewelry and clothing, but there’s also a large section of the mall dedicated to oddities like animal skulls if you’re looking for bizarro souvenirs.
Keep an eye out for discounts as you head around the store. Vendors slash prices by up to 50% throughout the year and it might save you a bunch if you want to grab a few holiday gifts.
website | 81 SE Yamhill St (get directions) | neighborhood: Central Eastside | best for: eclectic local and international pieces
CARGO is one of the best antique shops in Portland for eclectic and offbeat goods. It’s been rocking the city’s antique scene since 1996, but only found its permanent Central Eastside home in 2014.
Inside this historic warehouse, you’ll find artisanal products from local vendors like Altar, Appetite Shop, and Citizen Ruth. You’ll also find gems from as far as Vietnam and Japan. I’ll usually be found rifling through the home decor and checking out the hanging baskets, but I’ve always wanted to buy one of their Japanese Kobako chests.
Thee Lucky Bastard Antiques & Desirables
website | 521 NE Davis (get directions) | neighborhood: Kerns | best for: old-school artifacts and oddities
When I first walked Past Thee Lucky Bastard Antiques & Desirables, I knew I had to check it out. It’s technically a consignment store but labels itself as a “curio emporium” that stocks a jumble of paintings, salvaged optometrist chairs (yep – really!), and genuine artifacts from decades past. You may not think you need a 1950s radiation suit or an aging pinball machine, but you’ll probably be tempted.
