From Portland, we took Highway 26 to Cannon Beach, where I spent time at both locations of The Butler Did It Antiques. Both locations have baskets filled with miniature accessories, most of which are vintage or antique. In addition, sometimes there are Renwal and/or other dollhouse miniatures in glassed-in cases. Both stores also carry vintage and antique fabrics, laces, and seam binding, perfect for dollhouse miniature projects.
That day, I purchased some pretty antique pink seam binding that I used to make tiny dollhouse hand towels.

After scouring the area for more dollhouse miniatures (no luck!), we took Highway 101 south to Lincoln City, the home of Dot's Doll House, located in the Rocking Horse Mall.

Every time I visit Dot's Doll House, I find a new treasure. This time it was dollhouse magazines, miniature laces and trims, and two things I'd been searching for extensively. First, after much searching online, Dot's had a mini can of Old Dutch cleaner for Cupcake Cottage:
And finally, I found these authentic-style mini pictures for my Victorian stereoscopic viewer at Dot's:
The Butler Did It Antiques, 240 N Hemlock (503) 436-1791 and 124 N Hemlock (503) 436-2598, both in Cannon Beach, Oregon, 97110.
