Small Business Saturday

CAPERS is excited to celebrate and host ‘Small Business Saturday’ on Saturday, November 26th from 10 to 6 PM.

Every year, the West Seattle Junction hosts Small Business Saturday to celebrate shopping local and shopping small. Small businesses keep the community going and bring visitors from all walks of life. CAPERS carries many local goods from small business owners. The store will showcase many items from local vendors that are perfect for holiday guests and seasonal home decor to impress company! Some featured items include ceramics, art, throws, books, jewelry, ornaments and many more.

With over 50 cookbooks in-store, CAPERS has many choices for your next set of recipes. The cookbook section stays relevant by carrying many local authors to fit the community. A few of the local authors include Yotam Ottolenghi, PCC Community Markets, Becky Selengut, John Gorham & Liz Crain and Michelle Babb.

Another small business, The Bowl Maker, makes tiny cups called “Lucky Cups”. The creator’s parents were a scientist and pianist and gave her plenty of room for creativity and wonder. Throughout her time at University, she built upon her ceramics skills and now a mother of two, continues to pursue her dream of creating art to share.

Until the end of November, CAPERS will carry ceramics from many local artists including ModHome Ceramics, Beachwood Pottery Studio, Madisonware and Beth Farrow Pottery.

Lastly, all of our showcased jewelry is from PNW locals! To name a few, Alizah Olivas, Shelli Markee and Susan Goodwin are among the jewelers that have items in-store.

Thank you for your support and shopping local!
