Edie’s Shoes/Scout Apparel owner Erin Dolan has announced the closure of Scout mid-June due to the re-imagining of the block on which her shops live.

After almost seven years, Phinney Ridge’s Hip Zephyr is moving to Mercer Island (2727 78th Ave. SE) this June. The tiny 350 square-foot shop, which carries a nice selection of denim, and other casual wear, including many brands not found elsewhere in town, is moving to a 1,200 square-foot space recently vacated by What to Wear, an 11 year-old boutique also known for their selection of denim, and other casual wear.

Starting today, NuBe Green is cleaning shop. Head to this Capitol Hill emporium of feel-good and functional, US-made furniture, gifts, clothing and home goods for their four-day storewide garage sale. Through Saturday, June 1, find most items marked down between 20 and 50 percent. It’s a goody!
I don’t need to try to convince you to shop consignment. Either you do or you don’t. Personally, I love it, mostly because I can get high-quality goods for less money and currently I’m in a more-is-more phase of wardrobe building. Which is why I’m excited to check out Mary-Bridget Pehl’s online consignment shop, MB’s Finds, and shop her upcoming pop-up on June 7 and 8 (at 1930 First Ave., right next to Baby & Co., like her Facebook page for more details).
When my dad had cancer eleven years ago, Gilda’s Club was there for him and that support made him happy. It was that simple. When we were there, he was happy, and that was all that mattered, so I’m forever grateful to this organization for that and those memories and like to do whatever I can to support them.
