"Books and Items cheap" Books Tip by seoulgirl

Books, Portland: 15 reviews and 14 photos

Portland has a bunch of thrift stores. There are many Goodwills and others. Off of 82nd and Holgate there is a Saint Vincent DePaul's bookstore that has softcovers for 1.00 and hard for 2.50. It's behind Walgreens. The goodwill on the SE side is best for books also. Parking is very limited and prices are high at the Goodwill on the SW side, near 18 street I believe. There's a Red White and Blue store in Oregon City, pretty close to the downtown area on the main road. If you hit that store at the right time you can get amazing deals on great items. And there are always tons of yard and estates sales around Portland. Best quality items tend to be in the Southwest. Boy I miss looking for bargains there! Fun fun!
