[box]ReRun: a neighborhood consignment store[/box] [/one_third] [one_third]I’ve waxed poetic about the joys of a thrift store, but this resale shop deserves a special write-up.

ReRun, a neighborhood consignment store, is a bustling outlet for all things needing a new home. Housed in the made over storefront where the enigmatic “Mrs. C’s Wigs” once lived behind boarded up windows, ReRun is a destination for neighborhood and cross-town residents alike.

You can spot ReRun from down the street by the line-up of colorful chairs, desks and other furniture items spilling out into the parking lot. Since it was a Friday morning, I was surprised by the twenty or so people inside the store sifting through the well-stocked,[/one_third] [one_third_last]but organized racks of jackets, pants, shirts and household miscellaneous. [Has old-school thrifting made a comeback in Portland?] Many of the items I spotted were in good to excellent condition and the prices, though not rock-bottom, were reasonable. If you are looking to get rid of a few of your extras, you can also leave your items here on a consignment basis, with a small percentage going to the store and the rest, into your pocket. I even had the chuckle of seeing a handmade cd holder I sold at a garage sale last year on the racks. I almost bought it, just for nostalgia, but decided to let it go – after all that is the magical life of thrift – what goes around comes around.
