Remember the denim store that used to be on First Ave near Seneca? What was it called … Rivet? Riveting? Riveted? Rosie the Riveter? It’s been gone for what seems like ages while nearby, A Mano, Jack Straw, Cicada, and the Cutting Room keep the shopping strip alive.
But earlier this week we noticed a new occupant moving in and went to investigate.
University of Washington Alumni, former NFL player, and Maverick Apparel Printing CEO/co-founder Mark Pattison is using the storefront as a showroom for his custom printing clients — and potential clients (otherwise known as curious passersby). While it’s not a retail space per se, it still looks like one; the dressing rooms are smartly re-purposed for storage and display. Also displayed is the company’s previous work for local institutions such as Seattle Art Museum, Cherry Street Coffee, and The Triple Door.
