Fashion Friday: New Fremont vintage stop, locally-made wood iPhone covers and a peek inside Guesthouse
Fridays before long weekends are always especially sweet, aren’t they? We’re adding to that happy, fuzzy Friday feeling with three new finds we are obsessing over:
I have a bit of a boot problem, and cowgirl boots? Look out debit card; you’re about to take a major hit. I frequently haunt Suzie Jarvis’ awesome little boot shop The Vintage Closet in Ballard and always marvel at her keen eye. Luckily for us, Jarvis is opening a second shop in Fremont next week, The Vintage Angel, focusing on vintage clothes this go-round. Jarvis is also lending that great design eye to her own collection of garments “Q”, which will be carried in the shop. The official opening date is next Thursday, June 2 (check out a sneak peek of the merch on their Facebook page); I’ll be there waiting at the door.
Need to freshen up your décor for summer? Make a Memorial Day weekend pit stop at darling new Guesthouse in Madrona, where owner Kate Sehulster also lends a great eye for style to her perfectly-selected home boutique. The ever-evolving selections of salvaged seashells, antlers or French-style candlesticks are layered among a vast fabric selection used for custom reupholstery jobs.

Okay, okay there are a LOT of iPhone covers, do-dads and accessories out there, but Lazerwood’s new hand-carved wood covers blow those plastic things straight out of the water. Hand-crafted by Squire Park resident Apryl Waldman, the wood veneer skins peel and stick on your precious phone for a totally arty, awesome costume.
