People, if you have not been here, you really must check it out! Located on the top of Queen Anne hill, at 1629 Queen Anne Ave. N., they are near the middle of the Ave.
I don't know much about the owners, or why they decided to open this store, but I'm so glad they did! If you need a gift for someone who pretty much has everything, I'm sure you'll find something here that they don't have.
They have a mixture of Asian, continental European and modern innovative items for the kitchen or home. You'll find extravagant English china, natural fiber mats for the table or floor, to potholders with and innovative twist. The way the wares are displayed is exceptional, you feel more like you're in an art gallery.
My favorite find are these tea bags shaped like pyramids, filled with one of three varieties of tea. You can even purchase matching accessories for them, or a complete gift set, including tea cup. Honestly, words can't do these tea bags justice, you have to see them to understand why they are so cool.
They are open 11:00 am to 6:00 pm Tuesday through Saturday.
