Utilikilts - Seattle
Utilikilts: Utilikilts

Located just behind Merchant's Cafe, down the alley, off of Yesler, this little warehouse shoppe has the finest and most utilitarian kilts on the market. Specially known and crafted in Seattle, these kilts are a must addition to your wardrobe. Started in April of 2000, originally started in order to fund a global arts project, involving seven double-deck busses that would travel the world, the company took lift and went on its own providing the world with the best kilts known to mankind. Check them out! Rating: 5 stars out of 5. Visited 12/27/2006.

Edge of the Circle Books - Seattle
Edge of the Circle Books

The best Pagan and occult shop in the region, Edge of the Circle trys to appease the earthy and true Occult paths while steering away from the New Age and fluffy-bunny witchcraft types. Owner and Manager - Robert - a spitting image of Harry Potter grown up; and the charming and all-knowing Raven who does an incredible reading ... this place has everything you need for spellcrafting and ritual. From Santeria to Satanism, from Ceremonial Magic to Faeries, from Witchcraft to Druidism. Great books, great art, great supplies. A must visit for any magical practitioner. Rating: 5 stars out of 5.

Trader Joes: Trader Joes - A Unique Grocery Store

Trader Joes is my most favorite grocery store, though this location is not one of its better stores in the selection and space venue. Still, good enough for the fix I needed today. Trader Joes is a "Unique Grocery Store" with a unique selection of goods, groceries, and food stuffs from all over at very low prices. Originally a small outlet in California, it has quickly grown in popularity from coast-to-coast. When I live in a city where there is a Trader Joes, that's the only place I shop. Rated: (storewide: 5 stars out of 5, this store: 4 out of 5)

What to buy: I of course grabbed some of my favorites for the camping venture this weekend: Vanilla soy milk, Chai, panang curry thai tuna, cashew butter, blackberry jelly, homemade wheat bread, macadamian carmel popcorn, the famous $2.95/bottle wines, and other munchies.

What to pay: more affordable than usual grocery stores

Address: 112 Galer Street, Seattle, WA 98119
