Seasonal Beauty


Let the rains begin and the winds blow the dancing leaves. Our doors are open and the heat is on. Stars, Stars & Splendid, and Stars Too are the perfect getaway for a blustery day. Join us as we move closer to the start of the holiday season and explore the new selections our dealers have gathered. Great textures, weathered patinas, vintage scores, and unique details are just a few of the offerings.





Vintage advertising across a cluster of colored tins, edging details on platters, and a array of silhouettes in silver-plate will inspire a new centerpiece or display as we plan gatherings.




In the evenings, take time to plan out fresh ideas in meals and menus. As temperatures drop the soup pot and slow cooker take center stage in the kitchen; filling the home with aromas of fresh garlic, onions, herbs, and a medley of vegetables fresh from the market.




Hand and heart merge and extend to serving others, providing comfort and calm. We bring bits of Nature inside as a reminder of the remnants of a well tended garden, a measure of our love for the outdoors. Whether we choose textiles in classic design exploring flora and fauna or actual cuttings, the attention to detail prevails.






Refresh your spirit with walks alongside the river and immerse yourself in the brilliant colors, the brisk fresh air, and the beauty of the Pacific Northwest.


Celebrate the changing seasons and surround yourself with beauty, simple treasures, and objects of art that make you smile. We’re open everyday from 11am-6pm and offer an ever-changing selection of vintage, repurposed, and collectible items for your home and workplace. SHOP SMART. SHOP STARS.

Falling Leaves


Cool, crisp mornings have us grabbing for a sweater as we head out the door. It’s the season of layering, nubby textures, and brilliant burnished colors.Stars, Stars & Splendid, and Stars Too are setting the stage for Autumn with great decor for the home.

Sleeping in a bit longer is expected while the coffee brews; but don’t sleep the day away. There are too many activities and adventures to be had.


Fall starts with changing out the house.


Rugs are being thrown across the wood and tile floors.


Blankets and finely woven throws are coming out of storage and thrown across the bed, couch, and porch swing.




Leaded glass door cupboards, well worn trunks, and rattan baskets in all shapes and sizes are found throughout our stores.




Start up a batch of soup that will fill the house with a comforting aroma. Centerpieces of gourds and fruit are quick, colorful, and affordable.


Copper pots are ready to go to work for the cook.


Games and candles add an element of intimacy and quality time with friends and family.


Fill the mantel shelf or the top of a cabinet or bookshelf with a collection of vintage lanterns.


Bowls of unexpected items make for a burst of color in any room and help brighten up a gray day.


Fill the coat rack with thick woven cotton sweatshirts from Mexico for guests that stay into the night.


Narrow drawers provide for display and add character when hung on the wall with everyday items.


Wool plaids in every color possible fill the hall closet.


With the mountains close by; snowshoes are a great accessory for the entry or front porch.


In the blink of an eye we’ll be fixing turkey dinner and untangling strings of lights for the Holidays!


You’ll find great savings on vintage, repurposed, and recycled goods at all three stores to change your look, your home, and your life as we fall in love with Autumn color! Open daily from 11-6. SHOP SMART. SHOP STARS.

Painted Furnishings

When creating a personal look in your home with unique furnishings, there are several choices. You start by considering keeping the original patina or looking for an item with a fresh coat of paint or possibly a distressed finish. Stars, Stars & Splendid, and Stars Too are filled with one-of-a-kind pieces that are affordable and cover antiques and vintage and some more contemporary designs.



Ivory palettes are easy to intermix with existing pieces and evoke a clean fresh feel. They have a great shabby chic feel when distressed.








Neutrals in slates, grays, and taupes are abundant at all three Stars shops. You’ll find decorative side tables, shelving, large cabinets, benches, outdoor tables, and more! The selection is at an all time high as our dealers bring pieces in for the inside as well as outdoor rooms — for use on the porch and deck as weather gets better.






Bright colors add an accent to any room and can be permanent additions or seasonal. Repeat the accent color with smaller items like pillows, vases, and artwork to bring the entire room together.





Make a statement with a wonderful whimsical piece that stands alone. This colorful chair can be a side table, be hung on a wall as a shelf, or simply be used functionally as a child’s chair.


Distressed and weathered pieces show age and history and adapt beautifully with any interior.


Join us every day of the week from 11AM to 6PM and search for painted furnishings to give a room a boost as well as creating additional storage and display surface. Stop back often — inventory changes daily. Also, be sure to check out the offerings on the sidewalk as the weather gets better. SHOP SMART. SHOP STARS.

Stained, Scarred, and Loved

Mahogany, oak, and fir are classic examples of wood furnishings often available at Stars, Stars & Splendid, and Stars Too. The unique qualities of the wood grains are coveted by those who appreciate stain-grade furniture. The scars and patina tell an unspoken story of how these pieces were cared for and traveled from one home to another over time. Run your hand across the surface and imagine the life stories it holds. The wear on pulls and latches indicates a much loved and used piece of furniture that has lived a good life.


Tables and desks offer a surface for everyone in the household to utilize whether gathering for a meal or doing school work or office projects.




Dressers are a staple in virtually every home and have come out of the bedroom and into the kitchen, covered porch and the main entry. Easily one of the most sought after items in any of our stores, when you find the design you like place it on hold. It’s likely to be gone the next day.





For those who live in a loft or industrial building an oversized dresser on locking casters becomes a partition to define an area and can easily be relocated to give a fresh look to a space.


Novelty items are great conversation pieces and can be used in a variety of ways.




Cabinets, sideboards, and wardrobes come in all shapes and sizes and allow for ample storage behind wooden doors. From classic panel doors with brass hardware to decorative pieces with heavy embellishment and trims you’re sure to find something to fit your personal style.



Sideboards once used only in the dining area often find new life by dropping a sink into the top surface and enjoying a very unique vanity for the bath!


Tall wardrobes and cupboards often house the stereo components and the television. It’s always amazing to see these primitive pieces come in store and find yet another home a century later.




Join us every day from 11AM to 6PM and take a moment to search out your favorite wood grain pieces. Be open to viewing furniture with a fresh perspective of how you might use it in an alternative way. With proper care these furnishings will happily serve another century. SHOP SMART. SHOP STARS.

Seasonal Contrasts

Much like the seasons change and contrast sharply one to the next, so do our homes and interiors as we shift from golden sunshine and the lengthy days of Summer to cooler temperatures mixed with rain and darkness as Fall arrives and Winter follows! Stars, Stars & Splendid, and Stars Too are filled with contrasts which draw us to certain styles and pieces.

Surface contrasts in grain, texture, hand-carvings, smooth stone, worn patinas, and shiny steels can be found in every space.







Antique and vintage mixed with contemporary blend effortlessly.


From the dining table and pantry,



to the art which hangs on the walls,



to bringing nature indoors; it’s the thrill of the hunt that never ceases.



Contrasts combine to create a statement and personal style which varies greatly from one home to the next. From cabin fever…




…to an era gone by.




No matter your style; you’ll find a wealth of unique pieces to layer, blend, and integrate cohesively. Search high and low for all your accessories and furnishings daily from 11:00-6:00 at all three stores. SHOP SMART. SHOP STARS.

Fall Favorite

As we make our way towards September, take one last ride down the river and get ready for Autumn. Just around the bend is one thing we always look forward to; the ever-popular END OF SUMMER SALE at Stars, Stars & Splendid, and Stars Too. Open daily at 11:00am, the sale starts Saturday September 5th and runs through Monday, September 7th.


It’s the accumulation of things you love that make a house a home.


Find salvaged and vintage accessories to personalize each room. A large tool box filled with used paintbrushes is perfect for the artist’s studio, hand-hooked eagles can be used as chair cushions or framed wall art using embroidery hoops on the underside, and a great cardboard canister covered in brilliant advertising comfortably hold pens and pencils where you need them handy!




Recycle, repurpose, and, when necessary, throw away! A classic tin sign reflects the tidiness of Oregonians, clamshells (acquired at the coast) have become an indoor-outdoor chime, and good old rusty goodness crumpled and condensed makes a statement on the wall or bookshelf.




Restock the kitchen pantry with the essentials of coffee, soda, pancake syrup, and local honey from your favorite farmer’s market. Select a variety of cookie cutters for baking as the rain moves in; don’t limit the use for cookies, baking powder biscuits can take on a fun shape for breakfast and dinner!






Bring out the flannel and plaid in shirts and pillows, an antique piano stool carries over as a small side table (adjustable height of course), find books on Oregon’s history, and use a vintage lamp to read by (or wire the base for a unique lamp)!
