The 15th Ave E commercial village is welcoming a new merchant this month as Station 7 has opened inside the old firehouse at 15th and Harrison.
Here is how owners Danielle Yoakum Tilden and Jan Reingold describe the new boutique:
We are a community-based store offering art, jewelry, found furniture pieces with an industrial flair, home goods and accessories. We search hard and gather one of a kind objects. We especially love architectural salvaged items, rust, worn leather, crystal and industrial metal, but you’ll find all sorts of goods in our shop. We are proud to showcase the work of many talented artists and artisans in our community. We feature locally made craft jewelry, art, ceramics, glass works, leather goods and clothing.

CHS spoke with North Capitol Hiller Yoakum Tilden earlier this year about the new life for the building as a creative boutique. “I really wanted it to be close to home. I wanted it to be a neighborhood thing,” she said at the time.
Station 7 opened earlier this month after a buildout that reclaimed the parking lot as a new patio space and emptied the old firehouse of the remnants of its longtime tenant, the dearly departed last video rental shop on Capitol Hill, On 15th Video. With new faces like Rudy’s Capitol Hill East moving in, and longtime businesses being pushed aside by the strip’s I-502 friendly zoning opportunities, Station 7 represents a bit of old school 15th Ave E. But Yoakum Tilden isn’t part of the truly old 15th Ave E merchant class — we asked.
Station 7 is located at 400 15th Ave E and is open Tuesdays through Saturdays, 11 AM to 7 PM and Sundays, 11 AM to 6 PM. You can learn more at station7seattle.com.
