Get ready to pound the pavement: Along with the arrival of glorious weather (yay!), several neighborhood shops are throwing open their doors this weekend and placing their wares outside for the perusing. So enjoy some sun whilst you shop:
Start the weekend early over at Clementine's, where owner Linda Walsh is teaming up with Dana Guyton of Sustalux to kick off the West Seattle Summer Fest with a sale on shoes and accessories. Guyton’s sweet sunglasses, scarves, belts and other vintage finds will all be offered for under $30. Then, hit the flea market-style sidewalk sale—featuring over 150 craft vendors—along the rest of the strip (full list of shops and locations here).
Starting up today and running through Sunday, Ballard-area shops are keeping tradition alive with the 48th annual Ballard Sidewalk Sale, part of the weekend’s Seafood Fest activities. Goods range from paintings to jewelry to wordwork—see the full list here.
Darling little Queen Anne Dispatch is placing their clearance items out at 50-75% off all weekend. Take your pick of $25 shoes from brands like Diba, Matisse and Chaco; $10 tops, $25 dresses (warning: I recently spotted some Suzabelle styles on the sale rack!) and a free surprise gift with purchase.
