seattle's premier outdoor and luggage retailer since 1897, filson,
recently opened a new flagship store. just in time for the holidays, too!
the store is located at 1741 first avenue south and is 6,500 square feet larger
than their previous location.
i had the pleasure of attending their grand opening
two weeks ago, and 'event' is a bit of an understatement; it was a party!
the opening featured live music, bites from tom douglas,
and a selection of local beer and wine.
^^^ my dad attended the event with me, and he
greatly enjoyed learning about the repair process. these are original filson
bags that have been redone and are available for purchase! ^^^
filson is known for their attention to detail, quality customer service,
and lifetime guarantee. the new space is gorgeous and includes
the warehouse, store, a community meeting space, and home
to artifacts from the klondike gold rush era and other original filson products.
we had a wonderful time at the opening and loved learning
more about filson. i may or may not have brought home a few
things to give to my family for christmas (!!!).
have you had a chance to stop by their new location? it's worth the trip!
