The peaceful, walkable retail stretches of the historic Sellwood-Moreland district are a throwback to the pre-Internet era of shopping and pack enough surprises to turn anyone into a collector. A magnet for antique hunters, the neighborhood is home to vintage vendors who stock both mid-century treasures and flea-market finds.
Trips to this ‘hood often begin and end at Stars Antiques Mall. Opened by three friends with a passion for collecting, the cavernous store houses nearly 200 dealers, seven days a week. Don’t see the 1950s cookie jar you’re hunting for? Check the antique mall’s sister store, Stars & Splendid, located right across the street.
R. Spencer Antiques has been around since 1967 selling furniture, fine antiques and more. This institution in the Old Sellwood District boasts several thousand square feet of furnishings, art and other collector’s items that span many centuries of world history.
Clothing & Gifts
At art supply store Collage, children and adults alike can stock up on crafting gear, come up with ideas for a project or watch weekend demonstrations to learn some new (or old) techniques. Friendship bracelets, anyone?
Shoppers who would rather leave the crafting to the pros have their bases covered at Fuchsia, which stocks delicate jewelry, accessories and gifts. Thoughtful, colorful and inexpensive, their wares are perfect pick-me-ups for friends or for a tired wardrobe.
CoCo & Toulouse is a shopping destination for gifts, paper goods, soaps, perfumes and unique clothing. Twice a year, the shop holds fun sip-and-shop charity-driven Fashion Shows. Trunk shows also feature artists and authors with their new offerings.
Consignment store Sellwood Union is a vintage seller collective with 18 unique vendors that offer a curated collection of one-of-a-kind pieces at reasonable prices.
Just for Kids
The Sellwood-Moreland neighborhood also offers something for the kids. Sweetpea’s is a consignment shops that sells gently used clothing for children ages newborn to 12 years old. It also has toys, books and gear like bicycle helmets.
Silly Daisy Kids, on the other hand, focuses on handmade, fair-trade and ethically made items. Poom Lynn opened the storefront in 2019 after selling her children’s apparel and baby accessories on Etsy, at craft fairs and eventually, in other local stores.
