STORE FEATURE: Velouria Boutique + Gallery in Seattle

One of the best things about owning a creative business is the relationships I get to build with my store partners. I'm kicking off a newsletter series to share what I love about these stores so you can get to know them too! First up is Velouria Boutique and Gallery located in Seattle's historic Pioneer Square neighborhood.
Say hello to Cat + Chika! They used to be customers of Velouria before they were the owners. They acquired the store in its previous location in Ballard and soon moved it to Pioneer Square. They carry US and Canadian designs with an affinity for Pacific Northwest designers.
Here are a few things that make me giddy about these gals.
+
They do not take themselves too seriously...scroll through their Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/hellovelouria/?hl=en) feed and you quickly realize these gals like to mix their business with FUN!
+
+
And they have great style...They really understand the PNW gal. They post wonderful outfit inspiration on their Instagram and online store.
+
+
Their store is always a welcoming environment for customers and vendors, additionally hosting art exhibits, and workshops.
+

+
They are serious about community engagement. They are informed advocates of small business and social justice issues and are not afraid to let their voices be heard.
+
You can find a selection of the Pine & Boon designs at . . .
145 S King St.
Seattle, WA 98104 For a full list of my store partners, please visit my about page.
