Hey, pals! Looking to do some shopping? We all know and love the big conglomerates, but there are so many great local businesses in Seattle who would love to have you. Stop by one of these great shops to find everything from flowers to food- and then hopefully come back again and again.

Here are 6 great local businesses in Seattle you should check out.

Geraldine’s Counter

Brunch never ends, especially because Geraldine’s counter does to-go! That means you can enjoy their delicious foods from the comfort of your home. We, like many others, are huge fans of their french toast. It’s seriously the best in the city!

Where: 4872 Rainier Ave S
Hours: Tuesday-Friday 7 am – 4 pm, Saturday-Monday 8 am – 3 pm

Lucky Vintage

There’s a reason why Macklemore wrote “Thrift Shop”, and it’s probably because he was heavily influenced by Seattle’s love of all things thrift and vintage. Lucky Vintage is our favorite vintage shop around- we always find something new and unique to toss in our closet. We know you’ll love them too!

Where: Multiple locations
Hours: Varies
