Located next to another clothing exchange shop called Crossroads Trading Company. Both stores are very nice, two of the best second hand shops I've ever seen. The Red Light was very impressive with high ceilings and elaborate, funky decorations. The clothing was extremely well organized with sections for items as specific as a section for flannel shits which makes it really easy to find exactly what you are looking for.

At first glance, you might think Red Light is just a Burnside version of Buffalo Exchange - tons of clothes bought from other patrons sold at a low price. But where Buffalo Exchange straddles many genres of Portland fashion, Red Light leans more vintage, hipster, and, well, cool than Buffalo Exchange. This is the kind of place Buffalo Exchange might've been in its infancy - founded by someone who's an expert at picking the gems out of thrift stores and other people's closets (and leaving everything else behind). There are still staples like black tank tops and used jeans here, but it's especially good for interesting vintage dresses, rock T-shirts, or neon yellow cowboy boots.
