Thank you for this great post about the shop and the book Mercedes wrote; Spookily, after a basic tour of Seattle's Pike Place Market; began some introductions to the histories and urban legends dating back one hundred years.

Tonight I received a lovely email from an artist. She sent her painting of our shop. Here it is! Ashleigh Darby made this beautiful painting of our shop and I am so proud to share it.
