Grow Washington


This storefront sells wares by up-and-coming entrepreneurs. You can buy these products as a way to support small business owners who may not yet have the capital to open their own retail spot.

Grow Washington has pickled foods, sauces, wines, honey, books, arts, crafts and other handmade/homegrown goods that work well as gifts. They also have office/workspaces in the back where artisans teach sewing classes and social media skills. Grow Washington is a cool example of a cooperative space that supports local ideas and homegrown talent.

Tommy’s Guitar Shop


Tommy’s Guitar Shop is owned by an actual guy name Tommy. He’s run his operation on Hewitt for ten years, personally fixing and selling guitars, ukuleles, mandolins and all variety of stringed instruments. He looks the part of a guitar tech: long hair and grizzled facial hair. And yes, he knows how to shred.

For the guitar enthusiast, Tommy’s is the place to visit when in town. The walls are literally lined with guitars and the hardwood floors are covered in amps. All of the techs and employees at Tommy’s really have the know-how to do their job, and are happy to engage you in long, detailed technical discussions about tuning pegs, fretboards, and pickups. 

If you shred, pick, pluck, or even nervously plink you’ll want to check out this unique small business while you’re in town.

Choux Choux Bakery


Shop ’til you drop… or don’t. Actually, that seems kinda unhealthy. It’s important to periodically eat. Fuel up at Choux Choux Bakery, where the from-scratch pastries, espresso, and bistro-like atmosphere create a nice place to recharge after popping tags. They have fresh soups and salads, too. Go. It’s the kind of place where you’ll want to photograph the colorful macaroons and “check in” on social media.
