About Take it Or Leave it

Oregon native, Chelsea Swanda, opened her first consignment shop,
Give & Take Resale, in 2012 after several years of resale apprenticeship with Village Merchants in the heart of SE Portland. Kenton neighborhood has proved to be exactly the close-knit, supportive community Chelsea had hoped for when she and her husband, Dave, built out Give & Take Resale in North Portland. What started as a small one-woman local resale shop has grown into a thriving community, inspiring the creation of a sister consignment store, Take it or Leave it, in the Cully neighborhood of NE Portland.
