Art Walk and Shop Late, Buy Local By Locals!

It’s Art Walk and Shop Late night, so we decided to help you double up on your local buying, too. Stop by these Junction businesses to buy goods made by more local businesses. Buy local by locals – that’s a win-win!

Stylish shoppers will want to check out Seattle-made Chemical Wedding handbags at Clementine – they’re riveted androbot riveting. While you’re there, shop the recycled-tin art of local Jenny Fillius. (Now you’re shopping locally and sustainably – good for you!)

Speaking of local art, you’ll find nothing but at Twilight Artist Collective, home exclusively to locally made art, jewelry, clothing, and more. (And yes, the clothing and jewelry at Twilight are works of art in their own right.

More ultra-stylish local designs can be found at Carmilias, featuring the jewelry of Jules from Ballard and Theresa Gionet of West Seattle.

Haute Goat CashmereAt Capers, there are jewelry designs by West Seattleite Susan Goodwin; Sandra June handbags – that’s another West Seattle maker; and bath and body care by Sweet Petula, the business of former Capers employee Cory Smith. If you’ve always wanted a little cashmere luxury, how about a Haute Goat scarf made from recycled cashmere – more points for being both local and sustainable! You can also pick up a copy of the 2010 Mixed Greens calendar to support eating local in the Northwest.

Bye, locals!
