Since 2004, the Sellwood-Westmoreland Business Alliance has worked to promote, develop and preserve the southeast business community as a desirable and vibrant place to work, shop and own commercial property.  In the 1970s Sellwood had approximately 30 antique shops. Today, Stars Antiques Mall (7027 SE Milwaukie Avenue) and Stars & Splendid Antiques Mall (7030 SE Milwaukie Avenue) represent over 200 dealers and are Portland's largest resource for antiques, collectibles and home decor.
