Portland >Xtabay Vintage
There are two reasons to visit this marvelous little Southeast vintage shop--one, shopping here is akin to wandering around Marilyn Monroe's walk-in closet, and two, you'll be right in the middle of the Clinton Street commercial district, one of the city's cutest and most unique off-the-beaten-track neighborhoods. Follow your hat and handbag shopping with brunch at Broder across the street.
I fell in love with an amazing long coral colored bohemian dress. A week later I went into the shop to buy the same dress in 2 other colors. I fell in love with the entire shop and I plan on purchasing a lot more from them..
I have been complimented by men and woman of different ages EVERY time I wear any of my dresses. On top of which they are ohhh so comfy to wear!!!
As if it couldn't get any better, the sweet adorable owner just makes you feel like she is your own personal designer and she has an awesome upbeat comforting personality!!! I recommend this boutique to anyone who wants to look and feel beautiful and amazing and unique at the same time!!!
Perfect Wedding Dress!. I have been searching for a 1950s tea length wedding dress for nearly 8 months. I thought that would be easy enough to find on the internet, but it wasn't. I have been checking Xtabay frequently since their dress selection is always changing, and finally last week I was riding by on my bike and spotted the perfect 1950s dress in the window. I went inside the shop, and the cute dress fit perfectly. The staff is very helpful and didn't even bat an eye when I told them the peacock blue dress was for my wedding. So fun! I love it.
Love it. Great vintage, variety of coats and dresses that were purchased a long time ago from the likes of saks fifth avenue to one of the many odd little regional departmant stores that proliferated across the country back in the 40's . . . . find a special something or just browse and enjoy
Good Finds. If you're someone who likes cool one-of-a-kind jewelry, then this is the place for you! I love the retro and boldly colored earrings the have in funky designs. its the perfect way to bring some spice to your wardrobe. Necklaces are nice too -- it has that perfect authentic vintage feel. Although the necklaces can be a bit pricey, it has better quality than the stuff you get at Forever 21 or Target.
Very nice. They have a nice selection of vintage cothing and accessories. I was able get a couple pairs of neat clip on earings. The people who work there are nice and friendly. This store is in a neighborhood with some other cool shops and restaurants
I Love this place!!!. I love the Xtabay! What can i say? It is just so nice to shop there. I always find the most incredible stuff and it's always in perfect condition. The staff is really nice and helpfull and things are organized so beautifully. I highly recommend bringing a friend and spending some serious time there trying things on. It's such a fabulous way to experiance the wonderful clothing and find pieces that add so much to your wardrobe. You will love it!
I didn't know how much I loved Vintage until I shopped at The Xtabay!. I had no idea how fun AND versatile vintage clothing was until I shopped at The Xtabay. All the clothes there are hand-picked, and you can tell. They aren't all smashed into the racks, like at other stores. It is easy to shop and every item is in pristine condition. I found the perfect dress there to wear to my cousin's wedding. It is totally original and cost a third of what I would have paid for a dress at Anthropologie. The employees are super friendly and suggested items to me that I never thought would look good on me, but they really know what they're doing because they fit like a dream! They also have local artisan jewelry, fabulous boots, and coats. I would recommend this store to anyone who loves vintage, or likes the idea of vintage, but doesn't think they can pull it off. You can...and will. The Xtabay will help you!
Best Vintage Store in Portland, HANDS DOWN!!. I love shopping here because of the atmosphere, excellent quality and selection, value, and customer service. They have great menswear and awesome dresses for special occasions. The owner is very helpful and they are always so friendly to me even when I have my 4 year old in tow. I go out of my way to check here first for clothing and gifts.
Best vintage shop in Portland!!!.
The quality of the merchandise is the main thing that stands out to me about Xtabay. The clothes are very carefully selected and cared for well at the shop--you won't find pit stains, stretched out collars, wavy hemlines, or any of the other problems you might encounter elsewhere.
The selection is excellent, ranging from formal gowns and suits to cute 70's tees. Also, the ambience and decor is unique and well thought-out.
Made Our Night!.
My girlfriends and I had the most wonderful time at Xtabay last week. Liz, the owner, arranged for us to do a group shopping night for several of the girls' birthdays. It was by far the best girls' night we've ever had. Liz was quick to offer suggestions and to snag pieces that she thought would complement each of us. All 5 of us walked out with at least one amazing find from the night (several of us got more than one great piece), and we all had a wonderful time getting to shop together. The prices are reasonable and the condition of items are consisently high quality. I've bought many a gift (for others and myself), and I've never been disappointed. Thank you, Xtabay, for a perfect evening!
