The first shop I visited was Simply Vintage. This is the same shop that my friend Janey of Atomic Redhead Blog used to work at before moving to California. I made sure to visit this shop as I had heard so many good things about the store and love all the items that the owner Sarah posts on her Instagram account Stutterinmama.
Sarah was very sweet and she sure has some fantastic vintage goodies for sale at her shop.
She has Atomic Swag tees for sale which I'm kicking myself now for not picking one up while I was there. No worries; I will be back!
She also offers reproduction dresses for sale by both Pin Up Girl Clothing and Trashy Diva.
I ended up purchasing a cute yellow striped top and a pair of 60's does 40's red Remix styled heels. Sorry I don't have any photos of them yet to share but will in the future.
I also visited Wanderlust Vintage which was a really cute shop, House of Vintage which is easy to get lost in, and hit up a few thrift shops that were nearby. Please visit my Instagram page (thesweetiesuz) to see some of the goodies I thrifted while in Portland.
Once Dave was done with his work duties for the day, we went to Hale Pele for their happy hour which included some very yummy tiki drinks and food. This is a must have tiki stop if you are ever in Portland.
That evening we met up with our friend Daren for more tiki libations and dinner at Trader Vic's. I'm sad I didn't take more photos but I'll be back in July for Tiki Kon and will try to remember to take some more then.
There were so many great drink options to choose from on their menu!
I settled on the Peach Tree Punch. It was delicious!
The next day Dave and I went to various thrift shops, had lunch at a cute Greek deli shop, and in the early evening met up with our friend Daren again for happy hour at The Quay bar, which is located at the Red Lion Hotel.
We had a fantastic view of the Columbia River and Interstate bridge.
The next morning we packed the car up to head back home, but not before meeting up with a few friends of mine from high school that I hadn't seen in over fifteen years! It was a lovely reunion and I'm happy that we met up and we already have plans to do so again in the coming months.
Till' Next Time,
