shop local: featuring, sassafras!

welcome to sassafras! 
located in the heart of belltown, sassafras is both a store and design studio.
many of the clothing pieces, jewelry and other accessories
are made on site;
additional local art and clothing are brought in
and featured throughout the shop! 
i am incredibly grateful to have been given a tour of the store 
(and downstairs design studios!)
by the adorable owner, amy.
amy is incredibly knowledgeable - 
she is familiar with each of the designers, 
the details and mission behind their styles, 
and fashion in general.
with amy as a resource, you cannot go wrong shopping at sassafras!
^^^ i think that PNW pillow needs to come home with me; 
this gorgeous, vintage-inspired couch is located in the dressing room ^^^
^^^ jewelry and handbags, galore! i would love to own 
one of the aztec clutches or geometric (adequately named 'e-ometry') shaped earrings ^^^
^^^ oh the clothes! look at all those gorgeous fabrics and prints ^^^
one of my favorite things about shopping at sassafras 
is the creative way in which the accessories and jewelry are displayed.
^^^ the art pictured above currently decorates the upstairs store.
a local designer is chosen each month to share their work! ^^^

and i cannot wait to come back!
xoxo.
