This 32 year-old shop is a Seattle icon specializing in the work of over 200 American artists, half of who are local and regional. Relationships have been thoughtfully cultivated with individual artists whose work is of a consistently high caliber, permitting the store to support those individuals and their small, often family, businesses.

The carefully curated store showcases a wide variety of jewelry in all price points, “item” clothing from small artisanal companies, functional art for the home and spa-quality soaps and lotions as well as many other handmade treasures. Exclusive Tintin collectibles are featured as well!

Providing a personalized shopping experience with an educated staff, exceptional customer service and gift presentation has resulted in a loyal customer base. By sharing the vitality of the creative process and the stories behind the work, it is hoped the customer finds satisfaction in supporting American crafts artists as well as a small local business.

Owner operation since inception has resulted in a clean 4000+ mailing list, a website with an online store, an 1800+ email distribution list with a 20% open rate and a written procedures manual.
Competition:The first in Seattle to encompass a diversity of craft media in one store, the original concept has been maintained, whereas competitors in the marketplace have diluted their artist-made selection with imports from China and Indonesia. So this store remains unique with its high quality, carefully chosen selection of American artistry, which is the result of an educated buying aesthetic.
Growth Potential:Opportunities for growth could be found through expanding the social media campaign, more effectively promoting the online store and possibly moving to a higher traffic location. An owner able to work more hours in the store could reduce payroll and realize more personal income.
Training/Support:Let’s talk more about fleshing this out!
Sale Reason:Retirement
