Portland’s Double Decker Bus Shop
A 1965 bus found on Craigslist is serving the public once again with affordable, vintage dresses.
Lodekka is repurposed double decker vintage dress shop located in Portland, Oregon. Creator Erin Sutherland found the 1965 Bristol Lodekka (UK) model on Craigslist, having made its way to the states by way of a Minnesota hockey club purchase back in the 1980s.
With an emphasis on maintaining affordable prices, Erin does not buy items from individuals or consign them in the store (with only a few exceptions made to local jewelry). By doing her own shopping for inexpensive clothes at nearby thrift stores and flea markets, she has no trouble making a reasonable profit.
