Julie Charles

"World's Smallest Dollar Store"

Julie Charles, known for her many talents, mosaic work being one of them, has created a fun interactive art piece known as the "World's Smallest Dollar Store" where kids of any age can enter 4 quarters and receive something from Julie's personal collection of whimsical whatnots.  Sometimes, one might be lucky enough to get a piece of sterling silver jewelry from her Common Objects jewelry designs.  This vending machine, which has a Seattle music theme, is also for sale. "Try your luck for a buck!"

We hope you enjoy this little video to honor the life of our shop dog, Stella. Thanks for all the love many of you gave her over the years.
