It's starting to get down to the wire for gift giving, but we've found a way to make your special someone feel like you went the extra mile, without actually going the extra 28.7 miles, to be exact.
Snoqualmie's Salish Lodge and Spa brings its delicious treats and luxurious spa goodies into the city with a Pacific Place pop-up shop. Located outside the second-floor Barneys entrance, the shop features signature Salish products like relaxing soy candles, lavender shower sherbet, and, our favorite, pots of honey from the lodge's own bee hives.
Salish is home to twelve hives of Italian bees that will produce around 2,400 pounds of 100 percent pure honey this year. The lodge first added the apiary in 2011 as a sustainable, protected habitat for the declining bee population.
You can pick up a pot of the bees' hard work for $4 to $23 during regular mall hours in December. For an extra-special treat, Shannon Galusha, the corporate culinary director of Salish's property management firm Columbia Hospitality, will be on hand Thursday, December 20 from 4:45 to 6 and Saturday, December 22 from 11 to 1 to serve up samples of housemade toast with bacon jam and tasty Salish honey truffles.
