They don't reorder, so once they're gone, they're gone. OH they also have cute one-of-a-kind handmade bags but they go pretty fast. Hope you enjoy browsing around!

NEWS FLASH! H&M IS COMING TO SEATTLE if you didn’t know that already. H&M is coming has been sought for years and now its finally here. So far we have a store in Downtown and University Village, maybe South Center? I am exuding happiness right now at the thought of thousands of things all in mine and your price range.
First a little info about H&M. the Swedish invasion started in 1947 as a women’s clothing store and such until 1968 when it picked up a men’s line. H&M slowly conquered western europe and in 2000 it made the leap over the pond to New York, and in 2007 H&M spread to East Asia.
What draws all types of people to H&M? Over the years they have had many exclusive lines by pop stars to fashion gods. Combining super affordable to high fashion. Some of the names that have combined with H&M are: Karl Lagerfeld, Kylie Minogue, Stella McCartney, Viktor & Rolf, Madonna, and Roberto Cavalli
Although I’d love to walk in the doors opening day... I don’t want to get trampled, so I’m going to wait a week. I’ll let you know how it goes.
Here it is on the map in Downtown and University Village

A little GLAM goes a long way!
Tropical and Parisian. Shopping or the Beach? Either sounds heavenly.
Clean, Romantic, with a little modern.
Rustic, comfortable, and elegant.
If you are finding it difficult to muster up some inspiration for your aspirations in your living space, email me and I’d love to give you that extra little push or tip to get you going.

-Elmer’s glue or Mod Podge
-rubber band (two per jar)
-fabric (a heavier weight will be better)
-cute twine or ribbon
-paint brush or sponge
Take the clean, dry lid and trace on the fabric at least 2 inches from the edges.
Cover the lid with your glue using the paint brush or sponge.
Cut around at least 2 inches from the tracing around the lid and center the swatch on the gluey lid and secure the fabric with rubber bands around the edge let dry for 10 mins.
After the 10 mins take off the rubber bands, not messing with the form in the jar, and replace with the ribbon you selected. Wrap it once or twice, and keep it on the rim of the lid. (You can see that the glue is still wet all over the top of the lid.)
Brush your glue over the ribbon and let dry completely.
Fill with whatever you'd like, jewelry, candle (take the lid off to be lit), lipsticks, etc...
