In an effort to help my friends get their work in stores and my own I thought maybe we could ALL help each other.  But hopefully this homework assignment will help you in more ways than one.  I would like to compile a list of boutiques, shops, etc. that are around the country that carry handmade work.  If you submit me something I will give you access to a google document that will be updated as often as I get information.  What you need to submit is the following:

1) Store Name
2) Location
3) Contact Info
4) How they take submissions
5) Type of store (plush, jewelry, kids, etc.)

Item #4 will hopefully help you the most too.  Maybe you have been meaning to ask xstore if they might be interested in taking your work or if xstore takes submissions from out-of-state or if xstore is in need of new products.  By investigating for us, you are hopefully looking into something you have been meaning to investigate for awhile. 
So pick up that phone!

There's a great list online of Seattle area boutiques, check out http://urbanfashionnetwork.com/boutiques.html (Just choose a neighborhood from the drop-down list).

It looks like it needs some updates, but it's still one of the most comprehensive lists I've seen in the area.

I'll submit some info on other shops around the country later...I have to find their info in the studio! :)
