Sharon, I read your comment to Ruby Pearl's Blog about La Monton. It touched a place in my dumpster diving soul and I just had to offer guidance to find Portland's next best thing. Goodwill Outlet Stores are fabulous!They bring all the things that have sat on GW shelves - too weird, too pricey, What ever and dump them into roll around hampers and sell them at unbelievable prices.Ruby Pearl turned me on to GW Austin known as The Blue Hangar.After I went to the BH I was ruined.When I got back home to Portland, I had to find a local place to get my "Junk Fix". I have found too many great and unusual things to list.It suffices to say I have double sets of Wolfgang Puck Stainless pans from huge to petite a brand new 3 quart La Creuset pan with a lid and a sticker, and Henkle knives and cleaver with nothing costing over $4.My crowning jewel was $800 PSB audiophile sub woofer fir $25.Ruby has found unique clothing items that she put on Craig's list for real good bucks. A friend found a rug for $40 that sold on CL for just under $400. Another friend who devotes more time to gleaning is constantly showing us platinum, gold, and diamond jewelry and a chronograph made by Patik Philipe(Check the company and prices out on the web because you would not believe me if I told you how much they sell for).http://www.patek.com It is nice to know that there are Kindred Spirits here in Portland.OregonGood hunting!MAXGoodwill Westside Outlet Hillsboro2920 SW 234th Ave.Hillsboro, OR 97123Phone: (503) 649-5424Store InformationGoodwill As-Is Store515 N.

Max, thanks so much for the great tip! I was just over on Ochoco the other day to the Mill End Store and saw a sign for the Goodwill Outlet that I have seen dozens of times before and I wondered--is this a retail outlet? Can I go there to find bargains?Because I was on a mission to accomplish other things that day, I didn't stop to check it out. But now I will!
Terrific heads! I hope they made your headache feel better.
