Shop Local Fashion Favorites at Belltown's Sassafras

FROM THE PRINT EDITION |
 
 

The best way to support local fashion is to buy it and wear it, and Amy Tipton, proprietress of Belltown’s Sassafras, makes that easy to do. She has filled her airy, urban space, which opened last December, with “everyday wear and comfy things that are pretty” from local and regional favorites, such as Seattle’s Lekkerlife, Lady Konnyaku, and Kimmi Designs, and Portland’s Queen Bee Creations. One rack is dedicated to a revolving cast of vintage sellers (bonus: she does on-site alterations for both new and vintage purchases), and there’s a spacious basement kitted out with five workspaces, available for rent by designers who need a place to spread out. Belltown, 2307 First Ave.; 206.420.7057.
