This Saturday we are officially opening our Phinney Ridge brick-and-mortar shop.
It's a rainbow-filled dream come true that all of us at Aide-mémoire can't wait to share with all of you. Come out and celebrate with us!
Date: Saturday, July 10, 2021
Location: 7003 3rd Ave NW, Seattle, WA 98117
Time: 12pm - 6pm
At noon Aran will give a land acknowledgement followed by a blessing sung by Blake Shelafoe of the Duwamish Tribe.
Our new shop will carry samples from the Aide-mémoire jewelry line, select jewelry pieces from fellow jewelry-artists, handmade ceramics and accessories, artwork, and delightful gifts for the home!
While you browse, we'll have refreshments and a button-making station, with art supplies to design and make your own button, or choose from one of our pre-printed designs.
A Note from Aran:
Since I started Aide-mémoire back in 2012, I’ve always dreamed of opening a space where all people feel welcome and safe. I dreamt of a shop filled with my own handcrafted jewelry designs, as well as handmade, upcycled, creative treasures highlighting makers in the LGBTQ, BIPOC, and women-run-business communities. A few months ago, I found the perfect space to make my dream a reality. Putting this store together has been a monumental task. But when I think about how far my business has come and where I am today, I am filled with joy and optimism for the future. I'm grateful to everyone who has supported me on this journey - our wonderful customers, our incredible team, and all my friends and family.
Can’t wait to see all of you at the opening!
