3 new stores on NE MLKJ make it your go-to zone for funky, quality resale

by respaced on June 22, 2010

In the past year or so, a handful of new resale shops have opened up along Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd in NE Portland. This is great, because now you North and NE Portland readers have even more places to sell or donate your unwanted clutter, and you DIYers have more places to shop for funky home decor items. Here’s the rundown:

1. Reviva! 6359 NE MLK Jr Blvd, Portland. Open M, W-Sat 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Sun 12-6 p.m., closed Tues.

Consign your furnishings, clothing, artwork, books, toys, housewares and more and receive 50 percent of the selling price. Items over $100 fetch you 60 percent of the selling price. If you have large pieces of furniture you want to sell, email pics to Andrèe at revivapdx@gmail.com. This is a great spot for lots of vintage glassware, flatware, dining room and kitchen decor. There’s also a great assortment of vintage clothing, including a great selection of old Hawaiian shirts. Good selection of used, recent books in the back, too.

2. The Consignment Shop 6019 NE MLK Jr Blvd, Portland

This consignment store also sells furnishings, clothing, artwork, books, toys, housewares and more. But whereas Reviva! carries more mid-century and vintage items, The Consignment Shop carries more antiques, including an interesting assortment of antique Asian furnishings and decor. I also loved their selection of tins, some antique, others just old but fun and colorful. Perfect for organizing items that you want to leave out on the counter!

3. Estate Store 3969 NE MLKJ Blvd, Portland Thurs-Mon 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

This resale store is an offshoot of Community Warehouse, a charity that accepts gently used furnishings and housewares to give to needy local families. Estate Store sells the high-end, antique furnishings that get donated (and, wow! there are a lot) and gives 100 percent of the proceeds to Community Warehouse. I loved the vintage llama riding toy (yup, it’s covered in real llama wool). This is a great place to outfit your Queen Anne Victorian or Craftsman-style home.

Thanks Mary Jo-

Now I have three new shops to check out when we move into our new craftsman-style house (if we have any money left:)

You know what's so great? The Estate Store has what they call a garage sale every weekend from 10-4 p.m. on the sidewalk beside their store. They drastically mark down stuff that hasn't sold. You should check it out!
