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!

Thankful For

For the month of November, CAPERS has sent out a post a day to show what we are ‘Thankful For’. More than anything, we are ‘Thankful For’ our customers and our West Seattle Junction community! It is so important that we appreciate and support one another in our neighborhood.

We want to highlight a few of the things that we have been ‘Thankful For’ so far this month, as today is all about being appreciative!

As stated previously, we are so ‘Thankful For’ local businesses that encourage shopping small and keep our community thriving! Thank you to all of our neighbors on California Ave.

Small Business Saturday is coming up this Saturday so head to the Junction and get some Christmas Shopping Done! CAPERS also carries many local goods from local artists, jewelers, ceramicists, authors, etc. We are so ‘Thankful For’ all of our artists!

We also want to express how ‘Thankful’ we are for fair trade organizations and products. Fair trade means that workers are treated fairly with their time, duties and pay. We are huge supporters of fair trade products and have many in-store.

Last but not least, we are very ‘Thankful For’ Le’Jacquard for enabling us to carry their beautiful linens for many years. We love the bright colors and intricate designs.

Thank you to all of the manufacturers that help us to make our store beautiful! We are so appreciative of the creating process, workers, delivery drivers, customers, employees and everyone who makes this possible. Thank you!
