Shopping in Seattle

Seeking the latest designer fashion? Seattle has it. One-of-a-kind crafts and artisan gifts? Those too.

From independent boutiques and major department stores to antique malls, souvenir shops, and specialty food purveyors, Seattle is a shopper’s paradise. Walk to dozens of stores in the downtown retail district, including the flagship Nordstrom store or venture further afield to shop other Seattle-grown national brands Filson, Brooks Running, and REI. Explore charming boutique-lined commercial streets in the city’s diverse neighborhoods and discover unique finds at area markets, vintage malls, and thrift stores.

If you’re a fashionista:

Shop: Downtown
The latest looks at the multi-leveled Nordstrom flagship store, the always on-trend finds at Macy’s, to-die-for jewelry and watches at Tiffany & Co. and countless other favorite shops. Satisfy your shopping needs at downtown centers Pacific Place and Westlake Center

If you’re a boutique freak:

Shop: Ballard
The hippest shoes, fashion-forward clothing and must-have home décor at small, indie shops all along Ballard Avenue NW.

If you’re an art lover:

Shop: Belltown
Astonishingly gorgeous glass works at Canlis Glass Gallery & Studio and Seattle Glassblowing Studio & Gallery, plus other artsy shops and galleries.

If you’re a foodie:
