I have had the best week in the Pacific Northwest! Aside from visiting with family, I have explored the state and it’s neighboring state (Washington) antique and collectibles malls and have driven high and low! I have amassed two big brown boxes of goodies that need to be shipped to my home in Texas where many items will be available in my eBay, Etsy, and Rubylane stores as well as the small pile of goodies below that still need to be put into boxes.
My final day or day 7 ends at Farm House Antiques in Sellwood, Oregon’s trendy Antiques Row. Sellwood has many antique shops but I must say that for the type of items I am interested in only Farmhouse Antiques’s dealers seem to stock a steady supply. Farmhouse Antiques is relatively small and quaint. Walking in the friendly lady let me know that they will be part of the huge 3 day antiques/collectibles event at the Expo center going on this weekend (of course, the weekend I leave is the year’s biggest antiques/collectibles show). Farmhouse Antiques always has a nice selection of vintage linens and quilts, kitchen collectibles, vintage jewelry and glass, some vintage clothing and accessories, and lots of sweet displays. I didn’t find any treasures today at Farmhouse Antiques but it was sure fun to walk around and look at all the booths and a sweet way to end my trip!
Wrapping-up week one of my Pacific Northwest tour, I had a very nice visit at Farmhouse Antiques, located on Portland, Oregon’s Antiques Row in the chic and quirky Sellwood neighborhood. There are over a dozen antiques and collectibles shops among other trendy boutiques and coffee shops that make-up Sellwood’s Antiques Row. Antiques Row is minutes away from the hustle and bustle of Portland and is nestled amongst turn-of-the-century homes, cute cottages and bungalows with lots of blooming trees and colorful Spring flowers this time of year.
Farmhouse Antiques is a charming little shop offering a large selection of antique and vintage quilts, tablecloths, tea towels, postcards, salt and pepper shakers, glassware, 1950s spaghetti poodles, nick-nacks, charming jewelry and so much more! On my visit I walked away with some darling vintage Holt Howard and Lefton pixieware relish jars and pixieware jam jars and a couple Josef Originals figurines (I will post up pictures shortly to share with you all) and I found the pricing at Farmhouse Antiques extremely reasonably especially in comparison to the many other antiques and collectibles shops that make-up Sellwood’s Antiques Row.
Farmhouse Antiques was by far my favorite little shop though the many other shops offered their own specialty items weather your interest is in paintings, Asian artifcacts, old lace, vintage home hardware from door knobs to chandeliers, and even yard décor.
Be sure you visit Sellwood Antiques Row and Farmhouse Antiques if you find yourself in Portland, Oregon as you will experience a full-day of treasure hunting in a chicly quirky neighborhood with lots of available parking and very friendly people.
