Online Retailer Moorea Seal Opens Belltown Shop
Local gal Moorea Seal, she of the keen eye and 869,129 Pinterest followers, has conquered philanthropic online shopping and set her sights on brick and mortar with the launch of a new store in Belltown.
Set to open on May 9, the Moorea Seal store will stock the same hip, interesting and innovative jewelry (made by Moorea and other designers), home décor, paper products, handbags and the occasional shoe or two. Additionally, the shop will have space for creative workshops (look for the first one with local florists Botany 101) and special events.
“The vision for the new storefront is to create a space that is not only fun and inspiring to shop, but that builds a thoughtful and connected community beyond itself,” she says. “Like with our online store, seven percent of all the proceeds from our storefront are donated to non-profits. And with our central location in Belltown, the most exciting element we are now incorporating into the store are workshops with local creative,” she continues.
Stop by (2523 Third Ave) on May 9 for the grand opening from 6 to 9 p.m. and then go back for more and more shopping during the store’s regular business hours, which are Monday through Saturday 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday noon to 4 p.m.
