We're celebrating Seattle Made Week at all three of our VAIN locations and we couldn't be more excited!
Seattle Made Week highlights the local makers and do'ers within our community and runs Saturday, September 19th to Saturday, September 26th, so be on the lookout for pop-up shops, Meet the Maker Events, and local goods and services in your favorite Seattle neighborhoods.
By supporting Seattle Made Week, you're also supporting a diverse local ecosystem of manufacturers and producers who strengthen our economy, employ Seattle residents, and help make the Seattle community unique. For more on Seattle Made events this week and beyond, check out the Seattle Made Calendar.
