Best of the City 2008
Dig into our surefire, gotta-get-cracking, must-do list of the city's most fabulous people, places, and things.
Newly opened Fringe Vintage (1700 NW Marshall St; 503-227-5630) proves that a store need not have been around since the Carter administration to know its bell-bottoms from its A-lines. Owner Erin Stout stocks up on “key pieces” from each decade. So whether it’s a 1960s corduroy purse with a plastic chain-strap, a bright-blue polyester ’70s shirt jacket, or maybe some neon-green Risky Business shades, Fringe Vintage keeps you firmly planted in the past even as you suit up for your next big night on the town.
