This Saturday, Valentine Open House, Both Shops

Please join us this Saturday, from 10 to 6, for our annual Valentine Open House, at both shops. Bubbles and sparkling cider will be served. Pink & red tissue and ribbon will be in action to wrap up all sorts of sweets for your sweets. Our card baskets of LOVE are overflowing with Valentine’s Day cards to give. One of my favorite days of the year–it is a time share your heart with all you hold near and dear. If you find yourself in downtown Seattle this Saturday, please do stop by.



 

 

Saturday at The Market

I write often of my ritual Saturday morning stroll through the Pike Place Market perusing all the flowers deciding which get to travel home with me for us to enjoy for the week. Thursday marked the 19th anniversary of our Market shop, and I still to this day get a rush of excitement when I put the key into the shop door, knowing a fun day awaits. It truly is an honor to be a small part of the history of the Market. As we head into our 20th Holiday season, I am filled with amazing memories from over the years of conversations, interactions, experiences. For any of you who have been to my 86 Pine shop, you know of the specialness of the courtyard. If you are in Seattle today, please stop in for a glass of bubbly or sparkling cider for our annual Anniversary Holiday Open House. I would love to see you. If you are a reader of the blog, please make mention of it to me–that always makes my day… For those of you who have never been to Seattle, put it on your list. It really is such a cool place on many levels, and a visit to the historic Public Market is a must.

My Favorite Things Today

Today is a big day for small retailers as Shop Small takes center stage in our communities.  I do hope you can get out and about in your town or city to shop & eat small today.  Of course you know I feel this way and I have said it often before, but small businesses add so much variety/creativity/love to the community in which they grace–they are fueled by the passions of individuals and families.  So if shopping is on your agenda today, shop small.  I promise you, it will be greatly appreciated and make you happy, happy, happy.  

Just a reminder, we have our Holiday Open House today at our shop in the courtyard of the Inn at the Market, in the Pike Place Market.  Would love to see you there!  As a little blog reader bonus, if you see me and tell me you follow along on the daily posts, I will have a ‘merci’ treat for you.  Now on to my latest favorite things…
