Vintage Shop: Patti Smith West

Vintage Shop Patti Smith WestI recently discovered a sweet little shop in Portland that is a nice alternative to running all about town, spending time culling through lots of garage sales, estate sales, and second-hand stores.  Patti Smith West is a vintage shop with treasures, pretty items, and unique clothing.  It’s in an unexpected spot.  The last time I was in the location of the store, it was a used appliance store.  Patti has done wonders with the space.

The shop sells things I love to have around my home – handkerchiefs, corded telephones, and re-purposed, hand-sewn designs.Vintage Shop Patti Smith West

I like to shop local when possible.  I especially like to shop at stores that have a warm and friendly feel to them.  Vintage or second-hand stores are a wonderful alternative to buying new this holiday season.
