I love Value Village, though the one on SE 82nd seems to have gotten a new pricer that actually knows what's goin' on in the world of fashion. It's still my favorite thrift store, though. There's one in the Hollywood District in NE, but it doesn't really have the same cool vibe, and the knitting needles aren't very easy to find Wink. There's a clothing only thrift store on 50th and Divison that has awesome sales pretty frequently, but it's small and I get claustrophobic there pretty easily. There's a place on Hawthorne, too, called Shadowbox that's really more of a vintage store, but I've seen such things as a dressform and a huge loom there. I think it's on 45th or so.

I've found that the thrift stores just outside of the city still have "thrifty" prices.

Volunteers of America on SE 182nd and Division (Gresham)  My Grandad lives in assisted living down the street and he loves it when I take him thriftshopping.  Cheesy

The Deseret on SE 82nd - nice and clean

and my favorite...
The Red, White & Blue on SE McLaughlin in Milwaukie

That's for the advice on other shops!

I absolutely LOVE the Red, White, and Blue, it's one of the places I miss the most in Portland, that and the good coffee!

the goodwills in the portland and beaverton area generally blew me away... way better than goodwills i have been to in any other state or in other cities in oregon.

I have a national directory of charity thrift shops that I hope you'll find useful.


Don't forget to look in your local thrift stores for your crafting supplies. Please check out my national directory of thrift stores at www.TheThriftShopper.Com for your shopping convenience.

i realize this is not a thrift store but it needs to be noted for all your thrifty needs!!!

the city liquidators under the morrison bridge in SE (across from montage) has amazing deals. they have an entire wall or discount scrapbooking materials and all sorts of other neato crafty items at really great prices. Smiley k--hope this is ok!

yeah!  i went to scrap for the first time the other day.
i wasn't sure what to expect.  it is awesome.  i bought snaps, and thought about buying a lot more.  hella cheap (and random)

there's also the knittin' kitten on glisan.  cheap, and the owners are nice.  and please please shop there because i guess they're having some business stress.  they got robbed several months ago, and there's regulation drama with the sign, and they're a really awesome resource and have really good deals, and i want them to stick around for a very long time.  they buy crafty stuff you don't need, and will take donations too, by the way.
and the goodwill bins.
and value village.

(my dear fiance works at the one in the hollywood district.  if you see a boy with twinkly blue eyes that most ignorant folks would accuse of being part samoan, but really he's part filipino, that's my loved one.  he's got a nice booty.)

Council Thrift 1127 SW Morrison has been under crafty new management for the last two years!  (me!)  We get amazing stuff, lots of high end and designer...  We still get a good bit of vintage.  Come on down and if you mention you saw this on Craftster I will give you 15% off!

I agree with SCRAP and Knittin Kitten, they are both great places. Now of course, I will have to check out Council Thrift since it is close to me.
