Best Seattle Special Occasion Pros

  • 1. Armoire
    505 1st Ave S 100, Seattle • SoDo
    Liz Pearce - Great option for try-before-you-buy clothes, or just to mix up your wardrobe without having to actually go shopping (ugh).
    Lindsay Pedersen - I am a clothing snob. And I. Love. Armoire. What's really astonishing is that they "get" me, they "get" my taste. They serve up items that I actually really like. And the process itself is super easy. You sign up for a monthly membership and give your size and fashion profile. They share several dozen options that fit you, and you pick 4 of them (or more if you get a bigger membership). They mail them to you with a return label and package. You wear the items as much or as little as you'd like. Then you mail them back, and repeat the process with 4 more pieces, etc. If you fall in love with an item of clothing they've sent you, then you can buy it from them. I am a huge fan.
    Jennifer Haller - Great resource to bring more life to your wardrobe!
  • 2124 2nd Ave, Seattle • Belltown
    Liz Pearce - I'm addicted to escape rooms now, thanks to them.
    Ryan Bruss - This was an amazingly fun activity to do with my coworkers. I can't wait until we're allowed to go back and do it again. I hear they were also trying to add a virtual puzzle room. If they do, I'm definitely going to check it out.
    Patrick O'Donnell - We did this as a team building activity for our company and it was a blast. Really good production values, and challenging puzzles.
  • 5819 6th Ave S, Seattle
    Liz Pearce - I used Knack Shops to order some gifts for far-away friends and family. It's an awesome gifting experience, with both flexibility to create your own gifts and lots of pre-made options to choose from. Easy checkout experience, too, which is so important. Great resource to have for the holidays and all year!
    Brooklyn Benjestorf - I love Knack for gifting! All of the products they have available are so chic and quality. I got my mom a box for Mother's Day and she absolutely loved it.
    Chris Manderino - is absolutely my go to place for any type of gift whether for employees, partners, customers or events. Their team recommends the perfect gift to meet my theme or goals and for every person that has received a gift they have gushed over how amazing the unboxing experience is just as much as the gift. Jump on this for holiday everyone!!!
  • 1521 10th Ave, Seattle
    Liz Pearce - Love, love, love this place. Beautiful store, excellent selection, helpful staff, and a great little cafe to boot. You can get lost for hours browsing. A Seattle institution - I take all my out-of-town visitors here.
    Brooklyn Benjestorf - I love this neighborhood book store so much. They have amazingly knowledgable, friendly, and helpful staff and their selection of books is amazing. I love the big open air design of the shop and (pre-COVID) would sometimes stop by just to peruse the stacks and hang out. With social distancing restrictions I've been pre-ordering online and make a point to place an order every month or so (even when I have plenty of unread books on my shelf) because I never ever want to see this place close down.
    Mikaila McLane - One of my favorite places in the city. I can spend hours here browsing for books and enjoying coffee from the cafe in the back. A rainy day off work is well spent here.
  • 9701 15th Ave NW, Seattle • Crown Hill
    Adam Doppelt - My family loves Swansons and we go there several times a year. They put on a great show for the kids. Before Halloween we bring the kids for the little hay maze. During the holidays we visit for Curly the camel, the reindeer, Santa, and the train set. It has a special place in our family history due to all the photos we've taken. Fun!
    Laura - Fantastic professionals. I've come here with sad little plant leaves trying to diagnose what the heck is going on with my plants. The team is super helpful at figuring out the problem and giving me reasonable solutions. Don't forget their #askswanson Twitter hashtag so you can ask questions via Twitter.
    Adam MacBeth - Hands down the best quality plants in Seattle. Very pleasant shopping experience. Appropriately priced!
  • Sara Eizen - Shannon is amazing! Shannon has an incredible eye for catching special moments, is super friendly, great at engaging with kids during a photo shoot (adults too) and has such gentle manner about her that relaxes even the most uptight person. Shannon creates beautiful photographic memories that will last a lifetime.
    Kirby Winfield - Shannon made the session fun, loose, and efficient. And the results were outstanding - best family photos we have ever had!
    Adam Tratt - Shannon is an amazing photographer with an artistic eye and lovely disposition. Highly recommended.
  • 2939 E Madison St, Seattle
    Liz Pearce - Great selection of indoor & outdoor plants, friendly & helpful staff, and a sweet gift shop to boot.
    Shannon Garbaccio - I love the City People's Garden store, but the Mercantile on Sand Point Way is our go to shop for so many things. They have gifts, toys, cards, kitchenware, beauty products, clothing hardware and plants. It has truly been our one stop shop for years.
    Cassie Walker Johnson - City People's Mercantile on Sand Point Way offers everything you need for gifts, household supplies, hardware and most importantly - stocking stuffers! They have everything I need.
  • Seattle, WA • Downtown
    Shauna Swerland Youssefnia - she has done our family photos as well as my company headshots
    Jessica M Shapiro - Lisi is the best! She takes our family photos every year. Not only is she a super talented photographer, but she connects well with my kids and gets them to smile. :)
    Susie Cohen - Lisi is a fabulous photographer who captures beautiful moments. She is a pure delight and super talented.
