Shop Africatown at Saturday’s Soul Holiday Market

Goods from Shades of Color will be part of the offerings Saturday at the Soul Holiday Market

With demolition and redevelopment looming, Midtown Center still stands at 23rd and Union. The shopping center is still in the game. Saturday, it will host a celebration and last minute holiday shopping event — the Soul Holiday Market is Saturday 1 to 8 PM:

Soul Holiday Market

The Africatown-sponsored event will feature games, music and food trucks.

Midtown Center, meanwhile, might hang around a little longer. Wednesday night, a combined East and Central Area review board voted to send the latest design proposal for the seven-story mixed-use project planned to rise on the block back to the drawing board for further refinement of its community art plans.

As for holiday shopping, expect a busy weekend around the Hill and the CD. For more fun things to get out and do, check out this week’s On the List. You can also find more local shopping and gift ideas on the CHS Shop the Hill page.

It’s a Black Friday, indeed, at E Pike’s new Ritual

With Thanksgiving out of the way, it’s time to Shop the Hill. E Pike’s newest retailer is ready for your business. Meanwhile, two other Hill fashion shops are marking the start of the holiday shopping season celebrating important milestones.

Ritual, a new independent fashion shop from two industry veterans, is now open on the Comet block and ready for your very Black Friday visit.

“When we’re feeling feel sassy, we might have some charcoal,” Sarah Randall Williams tells CHS about Ritual’s monochromatic approach with an emphasis on texture and shape.

“I worship at the altar of Yohji Yamamoto.” Continue reading

Shop local, Shop the Hill 2018

Talk about shopping small and shopping local this holiday season has already started this year with Thanksgiving Thursday falling a little earlier in the calendar than normal.

Through the years, CHS has been part of a small but enduring Capitol Hill holiday shopping tradition of helping spread the word about neighborhood merchants and gift ideas. For free. Some years we’ve had some big help — yup, we might never have guessed we’d ever team up with a giant soda company, either. Some years, we’ve pulled it off on our own.

It’s Shop the Hill season.

CHS is once again teaming up with the Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce and the Broadway Business Improvement Area to share local gift ideas and deals from Capitol Hill area merchants at capitolhillseattle.com/shopthehill/

Shop the Hill

You can let us know about your favorite shops here via Facebook and we’ll add regular updates to share through the holidays.

To learn more visit capitolhillseattle.com/shopthehill or follow Shop the Hill on Facebook.

If you want to help spread the joy, here are donation drives, feed the hungry, and volunteer opportunities around Capitol Hill.

Thanks for reading. And thanks for being part of CHS. Happy Shop the Hill.

For E Pike’s Arden Home, a new name and, hopefully, a new connection with the neighborhood

With its first incarnation shadowed by a controversy over interpretation of its longtime brand, Katie Largent is hoping for a better start for Arden Home.

“The change was really bigger than all of the controversy,” Largent said of the backlash that formed when Plantation Design — a Los Angeles-born provider of the botanical motifs, woven surfaces, and shutters of the plantation style of interior design — expanded to San Francisco and Seattle.

Capitol Hill Ferrari and Maserati dealership creating new auto row with E Madison Alfa Romeo showroom

Madison Pub and Chop Suey are getting a new neighbor

Capitol Hill’s auto row may never truly fade away. CHS has learned that the people behind the neighborhood’s lone remaining automobile showroom now have plans to open another in a 1920-built garage just up the street.

A new Alfa Romeo Seattle showroom and sales offices have begun permitting for a project set to transform the Talbot Building neighboring Chop Suey and the Madison Pub in the 1300 block of E Madison.  Continue reading

First look inside The Lounge by AT&T and Ada’s Discovery Cafe

Company executives were on Capitol Hill Friday for the telecommunication giant’s unveiling of its glossy new retail experiment, The Lounge by AT&T.

Morgan Collins, vice president for AT&T’s Pacific Northwest, Alaska, and Hawaii markets, tells CHS the company took the risk of trying to launch the new retail concept in an area like Capitol Hill because the neighborhood is home to “creative innovators.”

“I want us to be part of the community,” she said.

Another AT&T rep on hand put it more succinctly. “We are meeting people where they are.” Continue reading
