#shopseattle By Julie McCallum

Combining stunning nature with a unique urban setting, Seattle is a culture-rich city with an easygoing lifestyle. It has undergone a transformation into one of most energetic cities at the forefront of innovation.

Famous for coffee and fish, Seattle also has a vibrant shopping scene that is as unique as its many neighborhoods. Exploring a few of them is an excellent way for first-timers to experience the city and discover favorite local spots. The distinctive neighborhoods offer virtually every type of shopping imaginable.

Gift Shop introduces you to three stores in and around Seattle. Moorea Seal has become a major draw in the Belltown neighborhood known for its rich restaurants and nightlife along with the influx of condos and young professionals. Satsuma Kids Shop is in the Wedgwood neighborhood in Northeast Seattle and is about 10 minutes from the University of Washington. The Admiral District of West Seattle features a small-town feel, and is home to Alair. These retailers have one thing in common: they love their communities and sharing their passion for retail with the people of Seattle.
