Vintage Store in a Bus: Lodekka


Portland vintage shop Lodekka resides inside a restored 1965 double-decker bus. Adrienne So on Cool Hunting writes:

The name comes from the bus model. It’s a 1965 Bristol Lodekka that [Erin] Sutherland found and renovated with the help of her friends, ripping out chairs and scraping off wallpaper paste. When Sutherland lost her job six months ago, she found herself with a lot of time on her hands and an ingenious idea. Portland has a booming food cart industry, why not start a vintage dress cart? The idea meshed well with Sutherland’s other occupation as a member of the Portland 1930’s jazz band The Stolen Sweets. Now she can sell vintage clothes by day, and sing vintage music by night.
