What if a city's worth of great holiday gifts were just waiting for you under one roof so you could swoop in and score the best locally designed, meaningfully created, gorogeously perfect presents in a single evening?

And what if full and partial proceeds from all that great gift-getting went to the Seattle Symphony and their forward-thinking, city-defining programs?

It's happening. We're gathering Seattle's most giveable stuff at 1927 Events on Tuesday, November 13 from 5 to 8. 

 

Inspired by our 2012 gift guide, Bedecked and Bejeweled is a pop-up shop that benefits the Seattle Symphony, and it benefits you and yours, as well. 

-A $25 VIP hour allows you first dibs at more than 20 Seattle shops and vendors, and a whole starry night's worth of gift certificate experiences. For the remainder of the evening, $5 gets you access to the best of the best, and champagne and bites from Scott Staples' (Zoe, Quinn's) Feed Co. Catering, too. 

-Favorite shops such as Far 4, Click!, Baby & Co., and Clover will be in the house, as will individual artisans and stuff-makers like Seattle Sweets Co., Harman London, Sweet Petula, and Kari Gran.

-Themed mini-shops—the Man Cave, for one—curated from all over town, allow you to turn hard-to-shop friends and family into easy-to-please friends and family; targeted suggestions and real world advice—and that champagne—turn stress into celebration

-Gift certificates for the best Seattle services, experts, and icons mean you can give the gift of a truly special experience.

-Shopkeepers, stylists, artisans, designers, and expert givers will be on hand, and I'm personally ready to be a professional shopper/gift consultant to anyone and everyone. Let's do this!
