Buying Local in The Junction

How many local businesses can you support in one holiday shopping spree?Print

The possibilities are endless when you buy locally made goods from local businesses in West Seattle Junction! Here are even more opportunities to buy local, by locals!

Head over to Northwest Art and Frame for switch plate covers designed by Vashon Island artist Shelly Hurd – the variety of subtle patinas and colors makes them simply gorgeous. You’ll also find a variety of Northwest-made greeting cards and yummy home fragrances from Modern Notes, plus jewelry by Magnabilities – magnets let you switch out the stones on a whim.

If you’re not into jewelry, maybe a dog collar is in order – for your dog, that is. Next to Nature is selling Cycle Dog pet collars, made in Washington from recycled bike tubes. (Local and sustainable!) You can also buy From the Field organic catnip toys made with hemp and dog biscuits from West Seattle’s own Dutch Door Bakery.

CharltonMore local art can be found at Liberty Bell, where magnets, books, stationery, mugs, tiles, and more feature the work of popular Washington artist Jody Bergsma. While at JF Henry, serving pieces from Charlton Glassworks are sure to wow with Pacific Northwest flair.

Now, what about the hard-to-buy-for men in your life? How about a locally made, screen-printed T-shirt from Easy Street Records? And we’re certain they can point you to some great local music as well. (Pearl Jam still counts!) And there’s always that great stand-by of gift certificates – Easy Street has ’em, you can get some at local restaurants and bars like West 5, and also from Elliott Bay Brewery. Hey – that beer is made locally, too! Cheers!
