Shop Local Mercer Island

Hope you just enjoyed a nice Thanksgiving at home and not out shopping!. It was bad enough when Friday, Saturday and Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend became about shopping, but staffing shifts on Thanksgiving is pretty low.

End of rant. If you are planning to shop sometime this weekend, think about Mercer Island stores. But I’d encourage you to skip Friday and shop local on Saturday.

Island Books

This is by far the best shopping on Mercer Island, Aside from books, games and kid toys, there are also some jewelry and other craft items. I usually do a bunch of my holiday shopping here.

  1. Our consumerism is the number one factor in our individual carbon footprints and we are the biggest consumers on the planet!

  2. Studio 904 has great gifts during the holidays – unique hand made cards
    Also don’t forget about the car wash on the island… Makes a great gift too!
