Scavenger Hunt: NuBe Green
You have to love Capitol Hill in Seattle. It is a bohemian paradise and continues to be so even after other neighborhoods bow down to the chain stores. East Pine Street is no exception. I remember when the only thing worth going to on that stretch between 12th & Broadway was... well the Egyptian was just west of Broadway. Now there is Elliott Bay Books, Molly Moon Ice Cream, Odd Fellows Cafe, and NuBe Green!
NuBe Green stocks goods made in the U.S. from repurposed and organic materials. They support local artists, and sustainable businesses. AND they have great taste as to what they carry. Everything in the store is hip - it will not only make you feel good, but it will also make you look good! You can find clothing & accessories for adults & children as well as jewelry, handbags, toys, housewares, art, furniture... It is really inspiring shopping there - in the same way that Anthropology is inspiring, but without the mass production side of it. If you shop at NuBe Green, you will maintain your individualism and you can rest assured that you are supporting US artisans!
Oh, and I guess I forgot to mention - they now carry Haute Goat Cashmere scarves!
