Seattle Premium Outlets

Back-to-School Shopping

Chainsaw Art

Chainsaw Art

What’s a more recognizable Northwest icon than it’s mighty evergreen trees? (We are the Evergreen State, you know.) Any jaunt outside of the city will reveal roadside timber artists that – with a “vroom vroom” and a “carve carve” transform these trees into truly amazing works of art.  Read More 
Elliot Bay Books

Elliott Bay Books

We were all disappointed when the historic Pioneer Square location closed last year, but have you been to the new Elliott Bay Books yet? It has all of the charm of the original, except with less creaky stairs.  Read More 
Unicorn figurines

Archie McPhee

In my humble opinion, every person in Seattle should own some unicorn figurines. The place to go for them is Archee McPhee, Wallingford’s greatest trinket shop. Since 1983, this business has been supplying the city’s residence with all the stuff they never knew they needed–bacon band-aids, gorilla costumes, pirate patches, and…well…knick-knacks.  Read More 
Northwest Glass Pumpkin Patch

Glass Pumpkin Patch

This Sunday–October 17th–is the Glass Pumpkin Patch showing at the Alki Beach Bathhouse in West Seattle. Every year, the Tacoma Glassblowing Studio creates enough glass pumpkins to make an entire patch, which is then open to the public for a free art show. (Warning: Do not try to carve the glass pumpkins.)  Read More

Uwajimaya

Uwajimaya

A grocery store is not usually a tourist destination, but Seattle’s Uwajimaya is not to be missed. If Safeway has an opposite, this store is it. Loaded with Asian food, with an emphasis on Japanese, the store has an awesome selection for adventurous eaters.  Read More 
REI Seattle

REI Flagship Store

Being outdoors is such a major part of living in Seattle. Our proximity to water, mountains, and fresh air practically propels us out of our LaZBoys each day. And REI has been outfitting us since 1944 in those pursuits.  Read More 
Urban Craft Uprising

Urban Craft Uprising

Crafters, unite! It’s time yet again for the Urban Craft Uprising held at the Seattle Center. As the name would suggest, this ain’t your Granny’s craft fair–we’re talking the most unique, highest quality, and trendiest crafts for all ages. They’ve got it all: jewelry, clothing, lotions and potions, housewares, children’s toys, bags, and paper goods. …  Read More
