Thrifting Your Way Through St. Johns

By Kevin Salisbury, November 23, 2021

St. Johns has always been one of Portland’s most diverse and eclectic neighborhoods. There are so many ways to spend your day in this picturesque neighborhood, but one of our favorites is thrifting. Going thrift shopping has many benefits beyond getting a good deal. These options are more sustainable, unique, and you’re usually supporting a small business and your local community. If we were spending the day thrifting in St. Johns this is how we’d spend it.

Cathedral Coffee – 7530 North Willamette Boulevard

When you’re heading out on the town looking for those perfect vintage pieces, you need to be prepared, and the best way to do that is a big cup of coffee from a local coffee shop.

Grab some breakfast and a coffee before you’re ready to get shopping.
