Scouting in Seattle

Grunge music. Coffee. Seafood. Yep, we're talking about Seattle. Scouts Dana and Jean jetsetted off to celebrate their birthdays in this city of gorgeous mountain and water views, and in true Scout fashion, discovered some fabulous finds. They scouted out two incredibly eclectic boutiques in the unlikely area of Georgetown, just south of downtown Seattle, that should be on your "must see" list next time you are in this Pacific Northwest city. Don't let the industrial area fool you, these shops are worth the quick taxi ride from the Chinatown-International District. Conveniently located next to one another, Great Stuff and Susan Wheeler Home are both chock full of some of the most interesting vintage finds we have seen in a long time.Gracious shop owner Susan Wheeler opened her boutique last fall and has clients from all over who demand the type of unique and unusual items that she very carefully selects for her shop, Susan Wheeler Home, located at 5515 Airport Way S. Seattle, WA.Great Stuff is right next door at 5517 Airport Way S., where friendly proprietor Kirk H. Albert, jokingly calls his finds "mantiques". They definitely appealed to Scouts Jean and Dana as well! Check them out for yourself at http://www.greatstuffseattle.com/ if you're not heading to Seattle any time soon. You won't be disappointed. You might need a little background on the Scouts to appreciate this photo. Jean and Debbie love taxidermy, while Dana does not enjoy it quite as much as the others. Needless to say, Dana's reflection in the mirror says it all.
More background- Dana has 3 boys at home, plus her hubby. She is definitely outnumbered.
