Santa has not left the Junction. We may have had a windy one the first time but there’s always a next time. There are 3 places at the Junction where you can get photos with Santa. Bring your kids or the furry ones, Santa is available to listen to their wishes and have a photo with them.
Visit JF Henry and come say hello to Santa between 10am and 1pm. Bring your own camera and pose with Santa for free or have your personal photo taken by Santa’s Elf for just $5.
Santa will be at CAPERS every Saturday and Sunday until Christmas from 1-5pm. Bring your kids over to meet the jolly old man and don’t forget your camera! Santa will also be accepting donations for the West Seattle Food Bank.
At Windermere West Seattle, you can bring your furry little ones so they can have their own moment with Santa. Bring your cameras and non perishable food items to benefit the West Seattle Food Bank as well as cash donations to benefit the Windermere Foundation.

Saturday, November 30 from 11am – 5pm, Trunk Show, Launch, and Sale
Sarah Loertscher unveils two new jewelry collections, Ridgeline and Parallels, in a special launch event at Click! To celebrate Small Business Saturday the entire collection of Sarah’s work will be 20% off during the event only.
Ridgeline is an exploration of the simpler side – both of adornment and of form. This collection started as a re-creation of Loertscher’s very first production design, updated with bolder lines and a few mandatory facets. Ridgeline is a grouping of basics – rings, earrings, and bracelets – that are modern, simple, and easy to live in. (image: Divide Bracelet, designed for wearing while working at a keyboard)
Parallels is both the same and yet the opposite: taking the simple – in this instance, the outline of the rectangle – and repeating this outline into moving forms. Loertscher’s fascination with structure stems from the way light interacts with shifting planes of material. These pieces explore this fascination, moving Loertscher’s work into moveable, cascading jewels.
It’s chilly in Seattle and the holidays are upon us. Two reasons why you’d want to visit Clementine this weekend.
