When you say Seattle, most people think of rainy weather and great coffee.
But there’s more to this Pacific Northwest city than memorable coffee shops and umbrellas. This city is a great place to shop!
No matter what you need to find, there’s a shop for it in Seattle. Not sure where to start? Here’s a same of some of best shopping in Seattle.
Seattle grunge? No way!
Seattle may have been the home of the grunge look, but trendy boutiques like Sway and Cake are proof that Seattle’s tastes are far more sophisticated than flannel shirts and down vests. From cutting edge dresses to one of the best selections of high fashion jeans, this shop defines the best in the new Seattle look.
Style-central for Seattle’s men
Men looking for more style than GAP or Target can offer, without the stuffiness of a traditional men’s store will find the perfect balance at Blackbird. Casual, yet sophisticated. Stylish without trying too hard. This is a men’s store for guys who want to look good but still look like men.
The kids’ store you and your kids will love
Classic toys. One-of-a-kind gifts for babies and kids. Books you and your kids will love to read over and over again. Add in adorable clothes, and a DIY craft area, and you have one of the most unique children’s stores anywhere.
Even if you’re just visiting the city, this place is a must for your shopping in Seattle list.
You won’t want to leave the kitchen!
I freely admit to being a cookware and kitchen gadget junkie, but I firmly believe that Mrs. Cooks could convert the most dedicated take-away and “microwaver” to step up to the stove.
From cookware to coffee, the colorful inviting interior of this shop makes everything kitchen-related irresistible. Don’t miss their uniquely Seattle earth-friendly kitchen supplies.
The ultimate outdoor experience starts here
The crown prince of outdoor stores calls Seattle home, so make sure it holds a place of honor on your Seattle shopping list.
From camping gear and skis to backpacks and boots, they have it all. And because REI is a co-op, member get a piece of every purchase back for a year end shopping spree. Spend more, get more. And because it all meets REI’s exceptional standards, buying more also means having more fun in the outdoors. How much more Seattle can you get?
