PDX Event: Stars Summer Sale


STARS ON SALEThurs July 13 thru Mon, July 17 • 7027 SE Milwaukie Ave • MORE INFO

Local vintage emporium, Stars Antiques, is having their huge 5 day summer sale — starting today! All 3 of their shops (on the same block!), in Portland’s Westmoreland shopping district, will be overflowing with goods that all the dealers bring in and mark down for this event. It spills out onto the sidewalks every year and is an insanely fun vintage rabbit hold to fall down. If you can, I recommend going a couple different days during the 5-day sale. I always find tons of amazing things and you totally lose track of time while in the treasure hunting zone. SO MANY GOOD THINGS!

If you’ve already been eyeing something, there’s a good chance you’ll get it for an even a better deal. Make sure to stop by all three: Stars Antiques (7027 SE Milwaukie Ave), Stars & Splendid (7030 SE Milwaukie Ave), and Stars Too (7011 SE Milwaukie Ave) — all open from 11AM to 6PM. As always, I also recommend that you go to lunch at Jade Bistro for lunch — the vermicelli salads are perfect on hot days!
