I went on a vintage shopping trip around Portland with Eva Wiseman of the UK Observer and she wrote an article about it, click here to read.
I wrote and took photos for a travel article for the UK Observer newspaper titled "When In...Inner Southeast Portland, USA"
The AUG/SEP/OCT Thomas Cook Travel magazine. It featured an article titled "Stylishly Second-hand" on vintage shopping that I was interviewed for.
Yoshiko Miyasaka the editor of Japan Elle online stopped by the store. She wrote about Lulu's Vintage and some other stores in Portland. To check out the article click here. Domo arigato to Yoshiko Miyasaka!
Here is the translation of the article:
My favorite vintage shop in Portland was Lulu's Vintage.
The shop was filled with 50s atmosphere and cuteness. In terms of styles, it reminds me of "(500) Days of Summer", and it's a cute overload. The items at the front are things made by artists in Oregon.
People in Portland do love "local". The fore-mentioned Alder & CO. also had a "made in oregon" corner. I just love that.
Oh, I got sidetracked. The owner Lulu was at the shop with a very cute baby!
What a stylish Mom! The items at Lulu's shop are all in great condition, so even if you aren't a vintage-lover, you'll find many accessories and dresses you'll love. The prices were reasonable as well.
