Back in September, we told you about a new retailer coming to Pike/Pine and joining the scene inside the Odd Fellows building. We noticed that the store was taking shape this week and a quick check of their Web site reveals Nube Green opens on Monday. UPDATE: It’s open! From Josh in the comments:
Although their website says they aren’t open until Monday they were actually open today and I think they will be tomorrow (the owner said the website is just hard to change).
Its a great little shop. Some really interesting stuff including some very cool cardboard lanterns made by a group just down the street.
The new retailer is targeting “ecologically minded consumers” and plans to “provide a strorefront for local artists.” Nube Green is the creation of Ruth True. She and her husband Bill opened the nonprofit art gallery Western Bridge.
Also on the ground floor — sandwiched between the popular OddFellows Café and Molly Moon’s, and right next to flora and henri — Nube Green plans to open the doors on its 2,300 square foot mercantile store in November. This retailer will carry a broad array of simple, fun and elegant gifts for the ecologically minded consumer.
The store will only sell products that have not crossed any oceans, including locally made items from recycled and sustainable materials. Nube Green will also carry its own line of products.
Meanwhile, down the street, CHS also noted ‘sign’ of an existing business doing some upgrades for the holidays. Looks like Seattle Running Company got a new sign for Christmas.
Pike/Pine isn’t the only area on the Hill with some good biz news. CHS reported yesterday on some cool changes for the People’s Republic of Koffee over on 12th Ave. Meanwhile, beloved Broadway bookseller Bailey Coy is officially no more.
