Attending “Home for the Holidays” events in Seattle? Let’s celebrate the local businesses that make our communities feel like home! Intentionalist is proud to partner with the City to encourage the community to eat, drink, and shop local this holiday season. Whether you’re catching up with friends, shopping for gifts, or attending a concert, the small businesses we love are counting on all of us to #SpendLikeItMatters.
- Explore small businesses throughout the downtown core using our online map, which makes it easy to search and filter by neighborhood and type of business.
