Look at this wacky, mod bar stool!! I think it was all of 20.00. That's the great thing about Village Merchants, they are very reasonably priced.
My friend bought this little vintage sombrero hat that now resides on her 50s swordfish TV lamp:
On our way to lunch we passed by this enigmatic storefront:
My thrifting expedition was conducted in an entirely secondhand outfit, btw. Googly-eyed owl pin, jean jacket, lace-trimmed cowboy shirt and plaid pashmina scarf. All either purchased at Goodwill or Salvation Army. I ended up not buying a stitch of thrifted clothing in Portland---however, I did buy this awesome mushroom windchime made of oxidized, welded spoons:
I got it at another of my Portland thrift favorites, House Vintage on Hawthorne. An unassuming storefront hides an astonishing labyrinth of dealer stalls. Higher prices than Village Merchants, but still well worth a look.
Somewhere along the line we came across this crazy, twisted tree in someone's yard:
The air was full of swirling pink cherry blossom petals as the day turned to wind and more rain. We ate lunch at a vegetarian Thai restaurant (where "medium" spicy means "tear the roof off of your mouth". I couldn't even conceptualize what "hot" must be) and I got ready to go home. See ya again soon, Portland!
