The Outdoor Furniture is Here...Summer can't be far behind


We blocked traffic on California Avenue yesterday while unloading a big truck of Summer Classics furniture. Now it's all in stock for YOU! High quality, hand-wrought iron, powder-coated dining sets and lounge chairs. Verandah is back in black with a 30 in and 48in round table and a 60in oval table, spring chairs, arm chairs, side chairs and end tables. And Duvet is here with it's rounded shape that goes with all of the tables above. You'll want to rock a while in the Terrace Rose Spring Loungers with the thick, red cushions. All built to last and last. Come check it out.

Customers have been in CAPERS lately, looking at frames and fabrics for a new chair, sofa, bed. It's a great time to put together a new look because our 25th Anniversary Sale starts June 5th. We will have upholstered furniture from Lee Industries and Cisco Brothers on sale, both in stock and by special order, for 30% off list. In fact, everything in the store is on sale during the anniversary sale, at least 20% off. You can start your furniture special orders now....checking out fabrics, measuring and planning. It's really pretty exciting. And a little overwhelming. But don't worry....we'll help you get exactly what you want and what will fit your home and your lifestyle.

Diane Graves at Artwalk May 13th 6-9pm




Diane Graves has been decorating people and homes in Seattle for almost 30 years. (She must have started as a child!) I have several pieces of jewelry from the Orbit days, a retail store located first on Queen Ann and then in Fremont. I cherish these baubles as each is a little poem or message that I carry with me. Then she and friend and artist David Farnsworth collaborated on copper ornaments which adorn lamps, windows, and Christmas trees with whimsical messages of love and hope. Presently Diane puts her beauty and wisdom to work on beautiful light columns...art lit from within. The lights are lovely and warm, and can add a golden glow to a corner of a room...perfect for an area of peace and meditation. Come meet Didi on Thursday and absorb the love in the room. CAPERS hosts her art the whole month of May, and the artist on Thursday night from 6-9pm. Pleasant weather is expected, and the Art Walk makes for a great date night or girlfriend get-together.

Is is Spring Yet?

I know we're all dying for a little warm weather so we can hang out outside and soak up the sun (you know...that yellow orb in the sky?). CAPERS has the best looking and most durable stuff around. (just got back from the National Hardware Show in Las Vegas and saw tons...nothing compared to Summer Classics.) Pictured here is the Classic Wicker Single Glider. It glides back and forth for soothing relaxation. It's all-weather wicker built on an aluminum frame so it's perfect for Seattle spring/summer. Even the cushions are made from mildew-resistant foam and easy-clean, fade-resistant fabric. Come in to CAPERS and have a glide. You don't have to have a huge porch for a pair of these...or the loveseat size. Maybe if we put out the outdoor furniture, summer weather will come.

'Tis but a token of your appreciation

Moms do so much for us....mostly just loving us the way we are. A cute piece of jewelry hardly says it all....but it helps. You know when you've shopped with Mom at CAPERS, she always stops at the jewelry case and admires. Our artists: Teresa DeLeen, Alizah's Jewelry, M. Francis, Susan Goodwin, Kristin Ford, and more helps you tell your mom just how special you think she is.

Sexy Nighties for Mom

Not only hot, but cool. These bamboo jammies breathe and stretch and comfort. CAPERS has robes, nighties, pants and tanks. We brought in some sophisticated colors: taupe, light pink and soft blue. I have some leggings that wash just beautifully. See them in the Petite Petula, our Sweet Petula shop within a shop.

Handbags for Mom...CAPERS Hot Ticket


This is a great new line of hand bags, totes, and accessories made of recycled water bottles from Mosey Life, a group of designers in Portland. Non-toxic leather dyes and metal findings free of lead and nickel adorn the water-resistant bags. But the best part is that they are SUPER CUTE, well-organized, stylish, and colorful. This is what you want for Mother's Day. Let everyone know.
