Shopper’s Diary: Great Stuff in Seattle

August 10, 2009 4:00 PM

BY Janet Hall

On my recent trip to Seattle, Kim Clements of JAS Design Build introduced me to Great Stuff, a vintage shop in the old industrial Georgetown neighborhood that’s a favorite with local designers, architects, and interiors aficionados. Owner Kirk Albert travels the US by truck, collecting vintage furnishings, lighting, and decorative items at antiques markets and fairs. Peruse the offerings at Great Stuff or at 1st Dibs.
