Next MCMLeague Meeting – Sunday July 25th 6pm

Aloha! Happy Summer!

In honor of sunny days, and dreams of tropical beaches, our next meeting will be tiki themed! Come on out to the President and Webmaster’s house in Parkrose Heights, and enjoy an evening in their basement tiki bar, “The Sandy Bottom.”

With Tiki Kon coming up the following weekend (which includes The Sandy Bottom on the home bar tour), and the annual San Diego event “Tiki Oasis” in mid-August, you may be in need of a vintage Hawaiian dress or shirt….??? Well, you’re in luck! The league’s President will be unleashing a rack of vintage barkcloth Hawaiian clothing one hour before the scheduled public meeting. Stop by at 5pm and shop for your next Hawaiian outfit before he sells them at Tiki Kon and Tiki Oasis!

Our show-n-tell will of course, be tiki themed, so feel free to bring an item or two to share with others. Hawaiian attire encouraged!

Where: 10333 NE Russell Court, Portland 97220
Time: 6pm Meeting (5pm shopping)

This will be more of a social gathering, potluck type atmosphere, and BYOB

Mahalo!

It’s that time of year again! Lots of league members come together to sell their vintage and used wares. Lots of fun stuff to buy! If you’ve never attended one of our sales, your missing out. It’s full of members who collect all kinds of mid-century and vintage things, but have collected too much! You don’t have to spend all day going from garage sale to garage sale looking for vintage, it’s all going to be here!

If your interested in selling, contact [email protected] - $10 for members, $12 for non-members to sell all your stuff!

Next MCMLeague’s Meeting – Sunday June 27th 6pm

June’s public meeting will be held upstairs at The Original - a Portland downtown dinerant! This modern yet retro-inspired eatery boasts “classic diner atmosphere for the 21st century”

Our topic of interest will be about summertime entertaining. Got a fun BBQ recipe you’d like to share? A vintage apron you wear while grilling? Fun picnic accessories or vintage diner advertising? Anything associated with summer entertaining or diner culture would be great to spark the imagination for this summer’s festivities. Please keep the number of items to share to a couple, and respect the establishment by not bringing in large items.

While your there, be sure to check out Jeff Kunkle’s Vintage Roadside photography titled “Dinosaurs and Diving Girls” on display courtesy of Elroy Art.

Next MCMLeague’s Meeting – Sunday May 23rd at 6pm



May’s public meeting will be held at Hawthorne Vintage – a 6000 square foot vintage retail store located at on Hawthorne Blvd. This store has a unique array of mid-century furnishings provided by a dozen vintage dealers. The store normally closes at 6pm, but we’ve made arrangements to have the store remain open for our league meeting.

This month’s show-n-tell topic will be about tips for furniture repair and restoration. We will discuss products to use for cleaning and reconditioning, and answer questions about how to get that piece of furniture to sparkle. Bring in any handyman books, magazines or articles that you would like to share with the group.

MCMLeague’s Monthly Meeting: Sunday May 24th, 6m
Hawthorne Vintage
4722 Southeast Hawthorne Boulevard Portland, OR 97215
