Exploring the hidden corners of Seattle


Tuesday Scarves Seattle Storefront
Alisha and I were roaming around the International District today and discovered a cool little store made possible by an amazing idea. Storefronts Seattle is an urban revitalization program that turns empty retail spaces into art galleries and trendy shops. Earlier in December, this nondescript vacant storefront was converted almost overnight into a cheery, inviting place among the bistros and antique shops of the International District. 

Store owner Rian Robison displays her collection of handmade scarves and wraps in what she calls a “pop-art inspired shopping gallery.” It’s a load of fun and she was great to talk to. We wish her business venture well and hope the Storefronts program continues to grow.

Storefronts Seattle recently posted a walking tour of the various spaces they’ve redeveloped. We’ll have to check out some of the others.

Location: 608 S Maynard Ave, Seattle, WA 98104
