In shopping for vintage, I definitely prefer thrift stores (it’s more affordable, the thrill of the hunt!)—but I can’t deny that I also love meandering through vintage shops. There’s just piles and piles of crazy stuff; for me, it is sensory overload. I could spend hours in places like this.
What’s awesome about Tea Thyme & Lavendar (which is located in Downtown Beaverton—a suburb of Portland) is that you can be served high tea amidst all of the (lovely) junk. Bizarre, yes, but wonderful at the same time. I’m so sad about the tea hours though. I can never quite make it.
