Simply Vintage * BOUTIQUE Portland OR.

Simply Vintage * BOUTIQUE

 It has taken me way to long to post a blog on this lovely vintage shop in Portland Oregon and the other shops full of treasures that I visited there, during last Christmas vacation! Simply Vintage is also one of my favorite stores on etsy, (so what's a little competition, we can spread the love ;-) along with Fab Gabs, both located  in vintage central on planet Earth in Portlandia!
Sarah, who works here (not Sarah the owner) being charming in her 'oh so very cute' sweater & celluloid brooch. 
Treasures galore! I bought a fabulous green art glass bead 50's necklace, so yum yum!
Learning from Sarah that they do all the fashion shoots for etsy here in the store, so it does triple duty as a storefront, storage and photo & listing studio. Very practical, rather than just renting storage space here in the city, where space is money. This is a dream of mine, but there really isn't a market for high end vintage in La Grande, we are too far off the beaten vintage path. Boo hoo.

I'm always drawn to the boudoir section, it's just so girly all that satin and lace. I have so much lingerie already that I've purchased over the last 5 years to list on my 'romantic vintage' etsy store luminousladyvintage, that I could open a third store on etsy. Maybe by this Valentines Day 2016 it will finally be the priority ..

Well worth a stop to shop!
