    "Loved shopping here! So many wonderful items to choose from! Staff was so helpful; terrific customer service! They shipped my purchase to me since I didn't have room in my suitcase; package arrived the day after I arrived back home! Next time I'm in Seattle, definitely making a trip back here!"

    "It was delightful to walk through the store and see all the creativity brimming from local artists. The person working the floor answered our questions and shared background information on some of the products. Thanks to his assistance, I got a fun leather bracelet and happily wear it knowing it was a from a local artist. The store is well laid out and has various goods plus the staff is welcoming, do stop by and check it out."
