Gift Guide For Her

Tis’ the season of giving and we want to help you find the perfect presents for your loved ones. In this gift guide, we will help you find gift options for ‘her’ (grandma, wife, mother, daughter, aunt, etc.). Some people can be difficult to shop for and we want to help you break that barrier with a gift that she will love!

 

First off, where is she located? If she’s in the PNW or somewhere chilly, scarves, fingerless gloves, hats, slippers and throws may be the quickest way to her heart. CAPERS has all of the above, in many different styles.

If she’s in a warmer climate like Arizona or Florida, maybe consider something that can be used no matter the temperature. For example, jewelry, large overnight bags, design or cook books or soothing neck pillows might be a good way to go.

If you’re looking to get something small or less personal, you might consider something like bath bombs/ sachets, candles, soaps, incense or ornaments. These items can be given to women of all ages and will be sure to please. Ladies love happy scents and we have many to choose from.

Maybe you’d like to get the lady in your life something stylish or sophisticated? If so, we have beautiful alpaca ruanas in stock and they are so soft and stylin’! We also have french linens, french silverware and — cutting boards.

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!

Le’ Jacquard Francais Trunk Show

As the Le’ Jacquard Francais Trunk Show approaches, we want to highlight the quality and durability of these linens to give you the “why” behind choosing this brand.

Le’ Jacquard has been a textile manufacturer since 1888. They are a leader in the high-end table market and have over 2,000 retailers across the world. The fine-combed, long fibers are made of linen and cotton. The weave is criss-crossed throughout, enabling the color to show through on both sides. Le’ Jacquard set out to break traditional norms of white table linens and bring extreme color into the home, that will withstand the test of time.

 

This floral-themed tablecloth is made of 100% cotton and coated in acrylic gloss. Just like the coated placemats and napkins, the acrylic provides an easy-to-clean linen in which you can just wipe down with a damp sponge; no solvent required. This material is waterproof and stain resistant. This is handy for family meals and is designed for frequent use.

 

The Pondicherry Spices tablecloth is 100% linen and perfect for fall! This India-inspired cloth is a beautiful design with three contrasting colors that add a pop of color to the room. Linen that is well-cared for will last for years and years and make for a great addition to any home.

 

The Provence Beige runner is 100% cotton and is inspired by the south where a table can be the balcony, a patio, the grass, etc. This item is perfect for year-round entertaining and can be accented with colored napkins or tableware. A runner softens up your dining table and adds a different dimension to your table setting, while allowing your table’s character to still show through.

 

The trade show will take place on November 3rd from 11-3pm and the entire line will be 20-30% off. Bring in color swatches of your home along with table measurements, and we will pair you with the perfect table cloth and home linens. If you already know what you want, you can head to the store any time between October 13th and November 10th to receive the discounts as well.
