We recently had the opportunity to shop our sister city, Portland, OR and stumbled upon the Portland Flea. It's a street market with vendors featuring vintage housewares, clothing, and crafts. Some other vendors also set up vintage furnishings, lighting, and other wares in an industrial event space on SE Pine. We were amazed with some of the finds. Here's a sneak peek at a couple of the items we picked up : Vintage Brass Ram Bookends and a Vintage Cloisonné Cherry Blossom Vase.
The Portland Flea is a vintage collector's dream. With so much eye candy and the added bonus of coffee from the Water Avenue Coffee truck, you could easily spend half a day here perusing all the vintage treasures.
With Summer upon us, the opportunity for shopping more garage sales and flea markets beckons. Do you have a favorite flea market in your hood? Where do you like to shop for vintage treasures?
