Shop Small Seattle: Home Goods & Lifestyle

 Let Round 2 of Shop Small Seattle commence!

This time, I'm highlighting various home goods and lifestyle small businesses you can shop at and support in the Seattle area. Whether you're looking for stationary, plants, home decor, apothecary, trinkets & gifts, you name it, this category's got it.

I should apologize now for not getting this post up in time for Black Friday and Small Business Saturday. I know, I'm the worst. But it's here now, and you can still support small businesses even though the rush and frenzy of all the November sales has ended.

As with last time, be sure to check the hours, policies, and COVID-19 measures being implemented by any of the below-named stores if you intend to visit them in person. Some stores may be open by appointment only due to space constraints or be operating under reduced hours. Show some love, but do so responsibly. 

If you missed my last post, feel free to check it out here:

 Stay safe out there, and happy shopping (if you are doing so)!

Samantha shares her passion for plants through her Air Plant Dating Profiles, General Plant Care, and through her original Plant-inspired Enamel Pins, Keychains and accessories.

As both the geometric and botanical pin collections grew, the number of stockists grew as well. You can now find Samantha's handmade brass mobiles and plant-inspired enamel pins and keychains in over 300 retail stores around the world.

To this day, each and every mobile and wall sconce is handmade by Samantha. Every plant is hand inspected and cared for, and each pin and keychain is designed and packaged by Samantha herself  out of her Seattle studio."

Gig Harbor, WA, 98335

From the website: "It began in 2015 with an opportunity for education and entrepreneurship: ENTRE 472, a course where undergraduates created companies in six months. Our initial team came together out of a mutual love for natural beauty and a goal to impact women positively. Bathing Beauteas has continued growing under the vision and leadership of Joyce Tang and Stephanie Mai. 

After meeting over multiple cups of tea and validating our idea, we landed upon the tea bath as our first product line. However, our vision goes far beyond the bath. We’ve always believed in the power of a great story. We believe every woman has a unique story to tell and we aim to help her find a voice in the community through our products and philosophy.

We partner with local nonprofits focused on women empowerment to develop mutually beneficial partnerships. Our growth as a company happens simultaneously with our impact on women in need. We handcraft our tea baths alongside women who are survivors of sex trafficking in the United States."

From the website: "I love clay. I love having my hands in clay, creating beautiful forms and textured, tactile pieces. I spend my days making pots to be used and enjoyed on a daily basis. I believe that functional pottery should start with form in mind. I design and throw each piece to work at its fullest potential. Coffee cups are designed to keep coffee warm and have a comfortable handle. Bowls have a beautiful curve as well as a lovely rim to hold as the bowl frames the contents within it. Clay is an inherent part of who I am, a natural expression and extension of my vocabulary. I am happiest when creating. I personally design, throw, form, glaze, fire and photograph each piece of work from my studio."

Elliott Bay Book Company

Local bookstore since 1973. I've frequented this bookstore several times and as a book nerd I can tell you it's heavenly. 

Website: https://www.elliottbaybook.com/

Instagram: @elliottbaybookco

Location: 1521 Tenth Avenue, Seattle, WA 98122

From the website: "The Elliott Bay Book Company is an independently owned bookstore founded by Walter Carr in 1973, at 109 Main Street. Over the next three and half decades, the bookstore shifted and expanded within the Globe Building adding event space for author readings as well as Seattle’s first bookstore café.

In 2010, Elliott Bay relocated to 1521 10th Ave in the Capitol Hill neighborhood near downtown Seattle. We brought with us the unique selection of books, original cedar shelves and the same knowledgeable staff, to ensure the same unique and welcoming atmosphere. The reading events as well as the café have remained a vital part of our business."

Features one-of-a-kind women & children's clothing, home goods, and gifts.

Website: https://florahenri.com/

Instagram: @flora_henri

Location: 401 1st Avenue South, Seattle, WA 98104

From the website: "One thing runs through lifelong Seattleite, Jane Hedreen’s list of most-loved things: the unfettered beauty of simplicity. Be it the abundant inspiration she finds in nature; good, nourishing food enjoyed around the family table; the women in her life who have and continue to influence her; and Seattle itself, Jane draws on them all to design and curate an inventory for flora and henri that allows us all to experience the joy of simply beautiful things.

Jane is a Seattle Native, Yale Graduate, who began flora and henri as a vertical luxury children’s retailer in 1998. The flora and henri brand has been available via catalogue, website, select wholesale relationships and proprietary shops in Seattle, New York, and Los Angeles. In more recent years, flora and henri has expanded to include women’s apparel and accessories, homewares and gifts and has partnered with like-minded boutique designers from around the globe. In June of 2017 the full flora and henri concept shop opened its doors in Seattle at the corner of 1st and Jackson in the historic Schwabacher Hardware building of Pioneer Square. In the fall of 2019 a second concept shop Live & Love opened in the beautiful outdoor Marin Country Mart at the Larkspur Landing in CA. Both shops offer a breathtaking collection of unique, sought after and inspired creations for children, women and home. Jane intends the designs and curations of the Concept Shops to promote a slow-family sensibility while always remaining thoroughly modern, and as a respite to today's ever more frenetic lifestyle."
