I would stay in Portland. Getting to Seattle on a Sunday, you'll likely
find all kinds of backups on the highway (unless you're coming by train
or plane.) It becomes a 3-5 hour trip one way- sometimes more; so you'd
be spending much of your time on the road...not seeing sites. (coming
from south of Tacoma, it once took me two hours just to get through
Tacoma on my way to my granddaughter's recital.) New construction has
helped somewhat now.
You could probably spend a full day at Powell's books there in Portland.
There are a number of contemporary art galleries in Portland:
There are many junk shops and thrift stores also in and near Portland:
I'm not sure where these public archives reside, but you can search many
from here: https://sos.oregon.gov/archives/pages/records.aspx
lots of private archives can be found using the search string "private
archives in Portland, OR"
