GIRAFFE in Vashon is hard to miss — there’s a large giraffe statue right out front! The story behind this unique, locally-owned store starts in Washington where Priscilla Schleigh was born and raised. She’d always been talented at sewing and design, and she was eventually invited to teach at a trade school in Haiti where she cultivated a passion for fair trade partnerships. Stop in today to find beautiful handmade gifts and home goods made by talented artisans from all over the world.
Fun fact: The collection at GIRAFFE includes goods from over 45 countries and local artists from the Pacific Northwest.
