We’re welcoming CAPERS Home in The Junction as a new WSB sponsor, as the store celebrates its anniversary by giving YOU a gift – an anniversary sale! Here’s what CAPERS would like you to know about who they are and what they do:
Decorate. Entertain. Give. Since 1985.
Classics that last. We want to sell products that are classic, never dated. Quality products that won’t end up in the landfill. Our furniture has lifetime frames; our table linens hold their color for years. Even the baby gifts can be passed down to the next. We like products with a story: Fair-trade and women’s work groups produce the kind of products we like to sell and our customers like to discover. Because we are a small neighborhood store, we are ground floor for local makers with new products and fantastic books that reflect the unique Northwest lifestyle that we all enjoy.
Local, fair trade, timeless design, classic quality.
CAPERS loves local. What better way to get in on the ground floor of a new project than to find it in your own town. We often try out new products at the monthly Art Walk or at a pop-up event that, later, turn out to be regular favorites. Seattle has a large food community and a lot of great local cookbooks. Picture this adventure: Visit the Sunday Farmer’s Market for a bag full of goodies, swing into CAPERS for a large platter while you pick up a few new recipes, don’t forget the candles, have the gang over for a gorgeous, healthy dinner. Easy. Almost effortless.
We can’t find everything we need locally. The next best thing is to introduce you to the beautiful and handmade items, produced under good conditions, and traded fairly for fair prices. Many of these suppliers are born of women’s work projects providing female workers the financial means to support their families and their communities. From baby rattles to luxurious alpaca knits, to handbags, and dishes, our buyers are bringing you unique products with good stories.
Our home furnishings are beautifully classic with a dash of modern design. Make the decorating last, spend your time on the entertaining.
We have so many more products than we can show online. To see our products in person, visit us at CAPERS: 4525 California Avenue SW; 206-932-0371.
