Candle lovers should stop by Formulary 55 in U-Village for discounted botanical candles ($15 each) and soap sets ($10 each). For those in West Seattle, Click! Design that Fits is holding a trunk show and offering some stellar deals as well: get 15% off Seattle-based designers such as Alchemy Goods, Steel Toe Studios and Piano Nobile. Queen Anne residents—be sure to check out the offerings in your hood. Browse through Four Winds Artful Living for unique Fair Trade products like handmade leather handbags and teak wood furniture. Mosey on down to Chocolopolis for free samples, stocking stuffers and free shipping for those chocolate-loving relatives out east. Think about the future you and sweat for less with hauteyoga’s bargain of a deal (5 passes for $50).
