We started out as a book reseller. We traveled full-time in an RV and sourced books from all over the country. It was so much fun, and we loved being able to rescue a dusty, unwanted book locally and sell it through the internet to someone from anywhere in the world.
Then in 2019, we needed to settle in the Pacific Northwest long-term. We just recently moved into a house, so we have a lot more space for inventory than we did in the RV!
We made lots of great contacts and found tons of books here. But times change and lots of people started trying to give us other things they didn't want. We hate perfectly good items going to the landfill, and we find that even many of the thrift stores have ridiculously high prices on used goods.
So we made it our mission to collect as many items as we can and find them new homes. By offering affordable prices on a lot of basic items, we hope to help the community buy what they need without breaking the bank.
Books are still our bread and butter, but we expanded to include items like furniture, artwork, decorative pieces, collectibles, and clothing. Now we hunt down, buy, and sell all kinds of unusual items from southern Washington through northern Marion County-ish. For something incredible, we might go out of our way.
Now that our home base is in the Portland, Oregon area, we take the "Keep Portland Weird" slogan seriously. If it's vintage, kitschy, strange, one-of-a-kind, quirky, and maybe even a little ugly, then we might love it.
We rescue items from curbs, thrift stores, abandoned storage units, estate sales, and any other place where things might be overlooked and thrown away. They're usually covered in dust and looked at by most people as worthless.
But we know that there are others like us out there on the fringe who want something different or unusual to bring home.
We also care about the environment and hate to see anything end up destroyed when it could still find a loving home.
