We Found Newport vintage stores on our trip to the coast.
We drove out to see the Newport vintage stores on the coast that we’d heard about. Naturally, we decided to hunt for more like we always do. The trail from the mid Willamette Valley to the Oregon Coast crosses beautiful vistas dotted with covered bridges and farms. Romantically twisty roads take you through quaint towns and roadside America. When driving on your trip and see a road sign noting a historic spot, pull over once in awhile. The trip out to the Newport vintage stores was perfect.
Travelling Antique trails with NorthwestVintageandAntique.com means Google Navigation. We built it into every shop’s page that we provide for your phone or tablet. On this trip we found two Antique Malls and a Vintage shop along the trail.
Pirates Plunder is a large multi room, bright Antique Mall with all kinds of treasures.
I saw a Stickley style craftsman arm chair at a giveaway price. We couldn’t count how many dealers have booths there..Very large. Sculptures to instruments and furniture to glass. They even have a number of life size Pirate statues, but something tells me they aren’t for sale…
Sean at Pirates Plunder referred me to Nostalgia Antique Mall. We used NWVA’s Google navigation and found them just down the road and over a beautiful Art Decco bridge.
There sat Nostalgia Antique Mall.
Another Newport Vintage store is Nostalgia Antique Mall. A friendly and spotless big multi dealer mall with a really great Windsor chair we had to force ourselves to walk away from. There was a Singer Featherweight in the travel case tucked in a corner, cases full of treasures, lighting and decor with a tool section, even.
Round Trip is a Vintage shop on a little side street off of North Coast on the Historic Bayfront.
Packed with clean and neatly arranged and racked vintage clothes in great condition. Including a rack just for guys when we visited. The owner, China McCoy stocks vinyl LPs, and lots of other funky fun. We found it while looking for a place to park for lunch at Mo’s Seafood. Duck into Mo’s if you like clam chowder when in Newport…the place is a legend and so is the soup. We always try to when we’re in town. After lunch stop in around the corner and see China – you might just find a nice piece of vintage America to take home with you.
During the drive back we stopped at the Blodgett Country Store for a cup of coffee. The store dates to the 1880’s… And then shortly after passed a sign for a working covered bridge. This is when hunting Northwest Vintage and Antique Trails gets extra fun. Since we skipped the lighthouse sign we passed earlier in the day, we turned the wheel. Down a county road passing farms and grape vines trimmed for winter the pavement ended… and there it was. Right next to a winery closed for the winter, an Oregon covered bridge in really good repair. You’ll find yourself almost reflexively stopping in the middle of the road when you round the corner and you first see it. We got out and walked around, drove over the boards, took photos and then drove back across and continued our way home.
We’ll be headed out to the Northwest Coast hunting Antique and Vintage shops again soon!
