Vintage-themed stores have become popular in Inner Southeast Portland; there's a new one in Westmoreland

RITA A. LEONARD - Meet Brittany Fasull, owner of a new vintage shop in Westmoreland - called Wild Daisy - in the former Iron Horse Restaurant building, 6032 S.E. Milwaukie Avenue. We've reported in the recent past about vintage clothing stores in Sellwood; and now there's one in Westmoreland, too. Passers-by may have seen an array of vintage clothing and other items displayed in front of the former Iron Horse Restaurant building; it was calling attention to a new vintage store called "Wild Daisy" which opened at 6032 S.E. Milwaukie Avenue on Saturday, June 19. During the record late-June heat wave, a large colorful suitcase, a woven basket, and a wading pool decorated like a slice of watermelon were on display in front of the store.

Owner Brittany Fasull tells THE BEE that she operates the business by herself, keeping hours of Wednesday through Friday 1 to 6 p.m., Saturdays from noon until 5 p.m., and Sundays from noon until 4. The 1,400 sq. ft. store offers a colorful array of vintage clothing, and socks, as well as crystals, and tarot cards. There is a dressing room for try-ons, and a variety of furniture and gift items on display.

"I will give you a sustainable shopping experience," Brittany declares with a smile. "I also have handmade jewelry and natural tie-dye items that I make myself." For more information, check the Instagram account "wilddaisyportland".
