When I first moved to Pioneer Square here in Seattle, I felt like my shopping habit would fiiinally get a bit of a break. The neighborhood felt more restaurant- and bar-focused instead of shopping-focused… that is until I discovered Velouria. This gorgeous boutique once resided in Ballard, but migrated south to Pioneer Square. They specialize in small production, independently-made pieces ranging from apparel, jewelry, and small house goods.
And the jewelry… truly, Velouria has the best assortment of rings, bracelets, earrings, and necklaces I’ve ever seen — and in a variety of pricepoints. It’s like walking into a candy shop.
The shop itself is also a treat. Many of the fixtures are fully adjustable and handmade with great finishes like white-washed wood, upcycled library storage, and ladders to display artisans’ quilts. They’ve also got a great collection of pretty plants!
Velouria also makes sure to highlight local artists, especially during their monthly Artwalk installations.
Be sure to check out Velouria whether you’re visiting or live in the city, located at 145 S. King St.
Thank you to Velouria for participating in this series!
