Giraffe-a store new to Tacoma-is opening up in downtown. The plan is to have a soft opening on Thursday, October 18, and then a fuller opening on Saturday, October 20.
But this is not Giraffe's only location. Dedicated fair trade shoppers may recognize the store from Vashon Island. Now, Tacoma shoppers can also explore this store's collection of fair trade furniture, home items, gifts, textiles and more.
"[Our new store] will have our regular inventory made up of Fair Trade sourced products from over 50 countries," says owner Priscilla Schleigh, "but with more of a home focus with a higher inventory in furniture from our friends at Tropical Salvage. The beautiful furniture is made of reclaimed woods in Indonesia."
The store strives to offer fair trade items that are high quality, beautiful, but also practical.
The store will be located next to another relatively new face on the block, Dwelling, at 622 Saint Helens Ave, Tacoma, WA 98402.
