We're sad to report that after nearly three years of giving us some lovely home wares to shop (and inspiring in-the-window designs to marvel at), Tim de Clue has decided to close his Georgetown shop Le Objects for the Home (1226 S Bailey; 206.604.4958). There will be great deals (such as 40 percent-off most inventory) to be had at the close-out sale that's going on now.
On the happy side, the owners of Drygoods Design have outgrown their Ballard space (5308 Ballard Ave. NW; 206.535.6950) and so are relocating to Pioneer Square's Occidental Mall (301 Occidental Ave. S) at the end of August, with a grand-opening bash on September 5th. The bigger venue means extended hours and more types of crafting classes, such as hand-lettering and dyeing. (FYI: All classes scheduled through August 24th will be at the Ballard location.) Drygoods will take part in the Ballard Sidewalk Sale, which starts tomorrow, 7/24, and runs through 7/27.
