  • February Artwalk | George Perrou

    We are thrilled to welcome back George Perrou for his second solo show at Click!. Perrou's mid-century modern paintings are a perfect pairing with many of Click!'s products (and many of the homes in West Seattle!), and his bright, cheerful aesthetic is perfect for welcoming spring.

    Perrou1

    For the uninitiated, Perrou is a self-taught artist from Portland, OR. His unique mid-century style is heavily influenced by the animation and imagery he devoured as a child.

    He'll be bringing all-new work for our February Artwalk, which opens February 11th, from 6-9p. Perrou will be here for the opening reception, so be sure to stop by to meet the man behind the paintings!

  • Shop Late Thursdays | Jacobsen Salt Co. Tasting

     

    We are totally in the spirit of the holidays here at the store! We hope you have begun to enjoy some tree-trimming, hot cocoa-sipping, gift wrapping, Christmas parties, and all of the fun festivities that this season brings! Speaking of those parties, we have the PERFECT gift for your amazing host, and we're even giving you a chance to try it out yourself.

    The Pacific Northwest is a playground for innovators, and Jacobsen Salt Co. takes full advantage of what our coastal region has to offer. Not only does Jacobsen Salt Co. pride themselves in their products being used by chefs and homecooks around the world, but they are also the first company to harvest salt in the PNW since Lewis & Clark. Infusing salts with flavors of lemon, vanilla bean, and even Stumptown Coffee, these little crystals are the perfect addition to any pantry.

    So here's the really fun part: On Thursday, December 17, we're inviting you to an exclusive in-store tasting of these amazing products during the Junction's Shop Late Thursday from 6-9pm - perfect for a post-happy hour treat! We'll be sampling a variety of Jacobsen Salt Co.'s infused salts, salted caramels, and delectable chocolates (which just so happen to also be infused with Pinot Noir from Oregon's wine country - oh yeah...), just in time for those last minute hostess gifts and stocking stuffers! So mark your calendars, and get your palate ready - you do not want to miss this!

  • THIS Sunday: Acoustic Music Benefit for Team Smersh

    First and foremost, we want to express our immense gratitude for all of you. You have blown us away with the sincerity of your warm, loving hugs and your incredible generosity. We honestly could not ask for a better community, and we are forever grateful for each and every one of you.

    We are still well on our way to meeting our goal for the Smershes, and we want to thank you for sharing their story. We haven’t even been fundraising for a whole month, but we’ve managed to reach almost half of our goal of $100k. Wow, you guys. Just…wow. Your selflessness is inspiring, to say the least.


    After hearing the news, longtime musician friends of John and Frances decided to join forces for a night of music, laughter, love, and community to help raise money for the Smershes. Each musician has played in some of Seattle’s most notable acoustic bands, and they’ll be showing off their incredible talents in some pretty unique ways. Combining the sounds of folk, swing, Americana, blues, old-time, and bluegrass, this night of celebration is sure to bring all the feels. We’d sure love it if you’d join us.

    Here are the deets:
    The concert will be kicking off at 6pm THIS Sunday (that means free street parking – right on!) at Karass Creative in Seattle’s Pioneer Square. Tickets are $25/person, and as with our YouCaring fundraiser, proceeds will be going to Team Smersh to assist John and Frances with current and future medical expenses. Click here to purchase tickets and view location information.

    This exciting night of music will feature the sounds of the following artists:
    Grant Dermody: Harmonica, Vocals
    Forrest Gibson: Guitar, Mandolin, Vocals
    Michael Gray: Violin, Vocals
    Orville Johnson: Dobro, Guitar, Banjo, Vocals
    Greg Maass: Dobro, Banjo, Vocals

    Joe Wilmhoff: Bass, Vocals

    We just can’t say it enough – thank you ALL.

  • Five Ply Design | Lighting Event + Giveaway

    Can we just take a quick second to recognize how INCREDIBLY talented our local artists are? Seriously, guys... PNWers are on another level when it comes to creativity. You may remember these unique laser-cut coasters and the urban BirdHomes hanging in our window. Both of these products are handmade by our neighbor and designer, Peter Benarcik, the creative powerhouse behind Five Ply Design.

    We have an affinity for functional art at Click!, so it's no surprise how flippin' excited we are to announce that Peter is launching a debut of his lighting line in our store on Saturday, November  7th, and we think it's some of his greatest work yet! We are suckers for pendant lights, as you know, and his new contemporary designs certainly don't fall short.

    All of Five Ply's home goods are handcrafted in their micro-studio in Seattle's International District with materials responsibly sourced in the USA. With Peter's background in architecture, you can trust that all of his pieces are carefully structured and built to last. Also, this is perfect timing for the rainy season - who couldn't use a little more light in their home or office this time of year?

    Peter will be hanging out with us all day on November 7, so stop by to meet him, learn more about his work, and pick up a new one-of-a-kind pendant light from his newest collection to cozy up your space just in time for winter. Also(!), we'll be doing a drawing for one of Five Ply's coaster sets, so you definitely don't want to miss out on this exclusive all-day event!

  • Trunk Show | Caravan Pacific (...plus a giveaway!)

    7499d3bfe43e05fba86b7ece2f3ca149

    If you've been by Click! in the last year or so, there's a pretty solid chance you've had a discussion with one of us about those super fun mid-centuryesque lamps we've got placed around our store. We are unashamedly guilty of our obsession with Caravan Pacific and their bold, modern designs. With that being said, we are SO excited to announce that we are hosting our first Caravan Pacific Trunk Show, Saturday, October 24th, from 10-5! We are STOKED.

    Shannon Guirl

    Owner and designer, Shannon Guirl, and her talented team work together to carefully handcraft her classic modern-era designs. Caravan Pacific lamps are made from ceramic earthenware that is cast, glazed, and fired in her Portland, OR studio. The wood portions of the lamps are a collaboration with expert turners who understand the intricacies of different species of the hardwoods they work with - Walnut, Maple, Cherry, Red Oak and Mahogany. The lampshades are made in the USA with finely textured linen to give them a natural feel.

    Not only will Shannon be hauling more of her gorgeous lamps up to Seattle, but she'll also be showcasing her cutting boards, deca vases, and lucky horseshoes!

    And oh(!), guess what else? We're super excited to announce that Caravan Pacific will be offering a GIVEAWAY at the Trunk Show for one of the white matte deca vases (see below). Be sure to stop by and put your name in the drawing! Seriously...how can you not?

  • West Seattle Art Walk | Deanna Baldi

    We are thrilled to introduce our next featured artist for this month’s Art Walk! Seattle's own Deanna Baldi will be adding some serious beauty to our space with her botanical-inspired creations.

    Deanna uses some of the most interesting media to bring her floral subjects to life! She begins by drawing on birchwood in graphite, then etches her design with FIRE (say what?!), then finalizes her piece by painting with oils. Talk about a conversation piece to add to your home. These bright, vivid colors will bring so much life to your walls!

    Deanna credits one of her favorite childhood memories as a source of inspiration: picking flowers and leaving them on her neighbors’ doorsteps. Now she has found a way to share flowers – and her talents - with her neighbors (that's YOU!) that will last in your home for a lifetime!

    To see more of these amazing designs, come hang out with Deanna and all of us at Click! on Thursday, September 10 and Thursday, October 8th. We’ll be snacking, mingling, and admiring her beautiful collection from 6-9pm. These beauties will be available at Click! throughout September and October.

  • Click! Summer Fest Sale

    So, if you live in West Seattle, you know this weekend is Summer Fest. For the uninitiated, this is West Seattle's annual street fair, which takes over The Junction streets and fills them with vendors, bands, food trucks, beer gardens, balloons, rides, ice cream and anything else you might desire in high summer.

    Luckily, Click! is right in the thick of it, which means you have no reason not to stop by. We're going to be running a few great sales throughout the weekend, which you will *probably* want to know about.

    Monster Blocks

    Firstly, we'll have our annual sidewalk sale going strong at 10am sharp. Expect steep discounts on past products and less-than-perfect items that are looking for their forever homes.

  • West Seattle Artwalk | Cheryl Robinson Art

    We are thrilled to be hosting West Seattle’s own Cheryl Robinson as she showcases her charmingly beautiful paintings and ceramics for the upcoming West Seattle Artwalk.

    Cheryl Robinson is the definition of a true creative. She continually utilizes mediums that capture her artistic craftsmanship while keeping her technique genuine and fresh! With a passion for penmanship, a Fine Arts degree with a focus on ceramics, and an unbelievable talent for painting (just to name a few), Cheryl truly embraces artistic diversity. Luckily, we get to see a combination of her talents in her collection for this month’s Artwalk!

    Having close ties to the restaurant industry, Cheryl designed her ceramics with a food-focused aesthetic, making them a lovely addition to your kitchen space. Looking for the perfect gift for the foodie or aspiring top chef in your life? These nesting bowls are truly unique and would be great for function and display. True beauty combined with versatility - it doesn't get better than that.

    Cheryl’s beloved furry and feathered friends will also be joining us on Thursday, and we just can’t get enough of this half of her collection. Her unique display of wallpapers provide the perfect backdrop for these beautiful creatures!

  • Lisa Hasegawa, intentional art.

    simplicity, focus, repetition - all apt words to describe Lisa Hasegawa's intentional art making. In her own words "...the process of art-making is as important as the finished piece itself." Holes are punched into sheets of paper that she has been collecting for years. Thread is sewn and the holes are burnished closed at the end of the sewing process. Truly a meditation in art.

    Click! welcomes Lisa Hasegawa to the West Seattle Artwalk Thursday February 13th from 6 to 9pm.
