Shopper's Diary: Red Ticking in Seattle

Issue 22 · The Well-Appointed Bath · June 4, 2009

Every summer when I head to Seattle, I stop by Red Ticking, one of my favorite local shops located in Madison Valley. Owner Pam Robinson is a master at collecting new and vintage fabrics, furniture, and other interesting finds with an authentic Parisian flea market feel. Photos by John Granen.
