Veteran antiques dealer opens "Portland Antique" in Brooklyn

RITA A. LEONARD - Antiques dealer Alan Riehl recently opened his first east-side antique shop, Portland Antique, at 729 S.E. Powell Boulevard, near the east end of the Ross Island Bridge. Longtime antiques dealer Alan Riehl recently opened a new showroom, just east of the Ross Island Bridge on Powell Boulevard. “I’ve been in business almost 50 years,” he tells THE BEE. “Here, I’ve got a quality assortment of all types of antiques, and half a block of off-street parking for customers.

“I opened my first store – Antique Showcase – in John’s Landing, in 1974. That was followed by Oregon Antique Wholesale, then Antique Estate in downtown Portland. We offer a consistent line of desirable and quality antiques; not just the sort of thing you find at garage sales.”

Riehl is experienced in a wide array of antiques. “We carry furniture, paintings, rugs, lights, jewelry, coins, stamps, crystal, toys, art glass, and maritime and western items, among other things,” he says. “We also carry a full range of militaria, including antique guns, knives, and swords.”

Portland Antique is open five days a week at at 729 S.E. Powell Boulevard. The hours on Wednesdays through Fridays are from 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.; on Saturdays from 11 to 5; and on Sundays from noon to 4. Closed Mondays and Tuesdays.

“We offer full appraisal and selling services, too,” he adds. You can contact him at 503/754-7225 for more information.
