A CAPERS guide to a day in West Seattle

So you are planning on spending a day in West Seattle? Great! There is so much to do and see (and eat!), we promise you won't regret it! Here is a little guide to some (more to come in the following weeks) of our favorite places to shop, eat, and explore around the neighborhood. Have fun!

P.S. We also here a rumor that there is also a great little home store called CAPERS on California Avenue... 

 You CAN'T visit West Seattle without stopping by Bakery Nouveau .From Quiche Lorraine to the Twice Baked Almond Croissant, everything they make is AMAZING!

If you haven't already eaten enough at the bakery, then you must stop by Jak's Grill and get The Jak Burger. A half pound of seasoned beef topped with a pile of blue cheese , salty bacon, and tangy roasted red-pepper mayo. We highly recommend it.
Now that you are completely stuffed, it is time for a little shopping. If you are in the market for some new shoes (I mean, who isn't) your next stop should be Clementine on California Avenue. From brands like Miz Mooz to Swedish Hasbeens, they have every shoe a girl could ever dream of.

The beautiful ladies of Clementine.

See you soon!

Advanced Style

Ari Seth Cohen (the real looker in the last photo) a former uber fashionable Seattleite, is now roaming the streets of his new neighborhood of New York capturing the creative style of the older set and filing all of his best finds onto his blog Advanced Style. I love this quote from him, it really sums up his passion for his love of elders:

"My name is Ari Seth Cohen. I roam the streets of New York looking for the most stylish and creative older folks. Respect your elders and let these ladies and gents teach you a thing or two about living life to the fullest. Advanced Style offers proof from the wise and silver-haired set that personal style advances with age".

See ladies, fashion isn't just for the young at heart, everyone should enjoy it! Big thanks to Ari for reminding us of that.

Isn't this ottoman by LEE Industries the best? We love how each room is so different, yet the ottoman seems to work great in every space. In fact, one of our clients just ordered it in a great buttery leather, which matches perfectly with her Cisco Brothers Cosmo sectional. We are very jealous!

We hope everyone has a great weekend here in West Seattle. Spring has sprung in the store and we can't wait to share all of our amazing goods with you!

Well, we always knew it was great, but we are glad the world is finally catching on....
Lee Industries also has so many great fabrics to choose from, isn't that green divine?

Valentine's Day at CAPERS

Can you believe Valentines Day is only five days aways? Neither can we! And although it seemed to sneak up on us a little fast this year (like always) we are always prepared here in the store for every holiday. Here is a little sneak-peak of some of our most favorite gifts, from some of our favorite people. Stop by the store for even more ideas in body care, candles, and cards. CAPERS always has you covered!
