What you'll do

Visit vintage and thrift shops on funky Hawthorne Ave!

Want to check out Portland's hot thrift shop scene? You just have to know where to go! Come along with me for a tour of shops that include everything from items plucked out of the dump to high-end Prada at a second hand boutique off the freeway!

We will meet to get acquainted and caffeinated! This is a team experience so we can share what we're looking for and act as scouts for each other (me: Frye boots, color brown, size 10, books about Oregon, and local posters / art). Then we will take off and go thrifting! We will spend approximately 15-20 minutes at each shop and skip the ones if there's no interest. We can stop and take pictures, grab snacks as we go, and break for lunch.

Hi, I'm Sarah! Browsing for treasure is in my blood: my brother operates an eBay store of old photos he finds at thrift shops. My sister scours flea markets for her store "Antiques & Plunder." My Airbnb is furnished almost entirely with items found in local thrift stores, and I am always hunting for more. I love company and hope you will join me!

Sarah was amazing. She took us to some great thrift shops, showing us and educating us about Portland all the while. She was great to talk to. It was a lovely day with a lovely host!

Absolutely phenomenal. I was blessed to be the only guest on the tour, so Sarah truly personalized the shopping for me. Her smile and energy are equaled only by her thorough knowledge of Portland. All I can say is I hope that she sets up a program as an hourly tour guide for the city and/or shopping. Sarah knows the area and the vendors know her. She has endless patience and was a highlight of my trip to Portland. The tour is more than "thrift" stores -- really a tour of the eclectic.

Had a fun time with Sarah today. I live north of Vancouver, WA and am not familiar with various Portland neighborhoods, but I love thrift shopping so hers seemed like a good experience to try. . She showed us all around, was very acommodating to the shops we did and didn't want to go in, and drove us around Mt. Tabor and the Hawthorne neighborhood. She loves Portland and it shows!
