Issue: #45July 2014

July is the month of The Fourth, of course, when we get to enjoy our flags and bunting and perhaps a reading of the Declaration of Independence.


In Seattle, July also marks the true beginning of summer, when we have to be vigilant about watering our plants, and the grass begins to turn yellow. The beautiful Spring flowers are now reduced to dried golden husks, ghosts of their former exuberance. Some days it seems the only things with any vigor are the weeds! I have certainly lost any vigor I had. It goes with the rising temperatures. I guess there is a reason I live here!

  Summer also brings out of town guests! How fun to show them our lovely city and favorite places. We feel honored that so many of you bring your visitors in to see us and to shop for special gifts and souvenirs to take home. And on the flip side, we sell a lot of things to be taken to far off places by our local customers. If it's important to you to find something made in Seattle, or the Northwest, let us know - we can direct you to the perfect choice. And we've expanded our Seattle selection - items depicting Seattle, favorite landmarks, our neighborhoods - in addition to so many items made right here!






And then there's the work by the other one hundred plus artists from around the country.....
