3315 SE Hawthorne Blvd., 503-236-1991, houseofvintagenw.com.

So you've moved to Portland, it's time to start dressing the part. House of Vintage comprises more than 60 individual dealers, stocking 13,000 square feet of warehouse space with unisex Levis cutoffs, early '90s Trail Blazers gear and ironic T-shirts. Legitimate vintage (say, older than the '90s) is scattered throughout, along with jewelry, records and kitschy knickknacks. One visit and you'll be able to infiltrate bars like the Sweet Hereafter without a second glance.

Magpie

1960 SE Hawthorne Blvd., 503-946-1153.

Now in its new eastside location, Magpie still boasts one of the best collections of authentic secondhand and vintage in the city. Take the time to read the handwritten price tags, each of which sports an amusing description or micro-story.

Ray's Ragtime

4059 NE Sandy Blvd.

Fresh off a move from the West End, Ray's Ragtime regains its crown as the place for incredible post-ironic gems like a gray tie-dye T-shirt emblazoned with "LITHUANIA."

Red Fox Vintage

4528 SE Woodstock Blvd., 3014 NE Killingsworth St.
