Shop Small Seattle: Clothing, Accessories & Jewelry

Shop Small Seattle

Happy November, everyone! As the holidays draw nearer and Black Friday sales kick off, it's now more important than ever to support our local businesses. This year has been one full of uncertainty and hardship, especially for our local artisans, creators, shopkeepers, and stockists. Lately I've been seeing the hashtag "Shop Small Seattle" surface on social media with amazing lists and roundups of local businesses, so I thought I'd throw out some of my own local biz picks in the hopes that they won't be forgotten and left out. 

It's impossible to put together an exhaustive list of local merchants because our city has so many diverse and talented business owners and makers. In order to include as many as possible, however, I am going to create separate blog posts for different business categories.

Today, I'm kicking off with the first small business category: Clothing, Accessory, and Jewelry stores located or based in the Seattle area! 

I hope to continue adding to this list over the next several weeks, so keep an eye out for new additions and let me know in the comments below which businesses you think I should include.

If you have the financial means to shop for gifts this holiday season, consider foregoing the big corporate companies like Amazon and Nordstrom this year and instead support one of our many small businesses instead. Every purchase helps keep our vibrant local economy alive. Who knows, you might even discover your new favorite shopping spot!

Clothing, Accessories & Jewelry Small Businesses

Know before you go: If you are planning to visit a local shop in person, double check the business's information online before you do. Hours, occupancy limits, and other COVID-related restrictions (such as making sure to bring a face mask) may make it necessary to make certain arrangements ahead of time. Some businesses may request you make appointments to shop, often in 30min increments, and most of the businesses on this list provide alternative pickup option such as curbside pickup. 

Times are weird and everyone is just trying to do their best, so be kind and courteous and do your research ahead of time!

Happy shopping.

From the website: "TAH, was created to bridge the gap between luxury craftsmanship and thoughtful functionality. Established in Portland, Oregon in 2015, the idea began to form during founder Angelina Marie’s many walks to work in retail. During her 17-year career as a buyer and store manager for a Seattle based retailer, Marie frequently trekked to work in sneakers while lugging multiple bags containing her dressier work shoes, a laptop, and the multitude of necessities women require. Marie knew there had to be a better way and developed TAH’s first prototype, a bag specifically designed for shoes that seamlessly inserted into her work tote. At that moment, TAH, or ‘tote a heel’ was born."

Website: https://www.septembertheshop.com/

Instagram: @septembertheshop

Location: 5410 22nd Ave NW, Seattle, WA 98107

From the website: "Over the years, the shop has grown and become even more true to the vision we had from the very beginning. My first priority in owning a small business was to make sure that everyone who comes through our doors feels welcome. I wanted to make sure that our shop would be the place our customers could find the perfect outfit for any occasion, a special gift for a friend, and something to make their home more complete. We focus on brands and makers whose values align with our own. Carrying products that have been made sustainably, by companies who give back to organizations that are doing GOOD things in the world, are the products we choose to curate our shop with. 

I named the shop September because it has always been my favorite month. I’m originally from Upstate NY and this time of year has a very similar feeling whether you’re in New York or Seattle and the familiarity of that feeling is very comforting to me. September marks the point where summer is coming to a close, and Fall is just starting. The change in seasons means you still have days to wear cute warm-weather outfits, but you also have the opportunity to sprinkle in a cozy sweater here and there. September is the month that we first opened our doors, and therefore it will always hold a special place in our hearts."
