Vintage Garden Love

Like the rest of Portland, we’re on the edge of our seats waiting for some SUNSHINE! Our fingers are crossed that we will really have that long sunny streak that should start today or tomorrow. If you are a gardener or love a vintage-loving gardener, or if you just love to lounge in your yard — it’s a good time to wander around all three of our wonderful Stars Antiques shops here in Portland’s West Moreland neighborhood! Come find goodies for lounging and working in the garden. Like we all know, they don’t make ’em like they used to!

You can make your outdoor space unique, fun, charming, beautiful, and full of character with vintage! Look for amazing patio furniture, gardening books, potting benches, bushel baskets, old seed boxes, pails, apple crates, trugs, watering cans, cute glassware sets for relaxing sit and sips, statuary, flower pots, planters, plant stands, sprinklers, and other vintage scores.
