BIZNOTE: Mystery Made on the move

Three weeks ago, thanks to reader tips, we mentioned the Christian Science Reading Room in The Junction had cleared out and the space at 4310 SW Oregon was for lease. It quickly found a new tenant: “West Seattle’s only men’s boutique,” as Mystery Made describes itself, is moving from Admiral. Co-proprietor Cory Côté tells WSB, “We’re excited to bring some new life and added energy to The Junction and a slightly larger footprint with it. Allowing us more space for considered goods and styles our customers have come to appreciate over the years! Super excited to meet new friends, and get to know our new neighbors as we continue to push and support all our local retailers if we can. Our retail shop will still be maintaining our online business at as we transition to our new home! Excited for everyone to stop by and check it out … going to be a fun spot for sure with plenty of good times ahead and even greater goods.” They hope to be in the new Junction space around mid-September, which will be almost five years after they added retail to what had been th company’s focus as a “small design agency.”

    Looks awesome. I’ve always wished there was some men’s clothing in the junction.

    I’m curious. How long was the Reading Room in that location ? I seem to recall it being there when I moved here 34 years ago, but I could be wrong.

      24 years, according to this 1996 newspaper clipping. I was looking at a 1952 edition recently and it cited that address as the office of the West Seattle Commercial Club, which seemed to be quite the powerhouse of its day.

      Immediately preceding the Reading Room it was a beauty salon.

    Sweet!!  Sorry to lose them from our South Admiral neighborhood but I suspect the move to Junction (with the increased foot traffic) will push this quirky and awesome shop into overdrive!  It’s the Click model…nicely done  ;)

    Welcome to the neighborhood!

    I always find something unique and cool at this shop. Psyched that they will be right up the street now!

Sorry, comment time is over.
