When I was four years old my Grandmother (we called her Nani) gave me a box of sparkling rhinestone costume jewelry. My Grandfather owned a mens clothing store in downtown Portland, Oregon from 1938-1978. When Nani would pass through Lipman Wolfe and Co. the sales girls would say, "Oh, Mrs. Bolger, you simply MUST have this blue rhinestone bracelet by Weiss." Despite the fact that a two inch wide bracelet was far too overwhelming for her Wallis Simpson, Duchess of Windsor style she would buy these fanciful gems and leave them in her jewel box, hardly worn and awaiting my arrival.

Vintage costume jewelry has always been my passion and as I grew up fashion, American history and attention to detail were added to the mix.

I am now a seamstress specializing in historic restoration in addition to being a collector of vintage clothing, jewelry and accessories for the past three decades. Buying and selling vintage and antique goods has been how I have made my living since 1998. In 2004 I opened AlexSandra's Vintage Emporium on Interstate Avenue in Portland, Oregon in a small 1924 bungalow home containing a collection of vintage finery from 1968 and before. Now open by appointment only, if you're near or visiting Portland, Oregon visit this link to make an appointment for vintage shopping any day between 10am-8pm with 24 hours notice.

The vintage clothing offered here has been spotted, appropriately laundered and repaired when needed.

This shop accepts Etsy Gift Cards.
