It’s really important to me to support local businesses here in Seattle so I’m happy to share this post today about Moorea Seal – an online shop and storefront in Belltown (a neighborhood in Seattle, WA) that is turning 2 years old! I wanted to share some of the photos of Moorea’s newly designed store from last week’s media and blogger party and tell any of you Seattle readers about the upcoming party that you’re invited to! On Friday June 3rd, from 7-9pm, Moorea’s hosting a party at 2523 3rd Ave. The first 100 guests will get a free tote (and the design is super cute!). Anyone who purchases an item in the store also gets to spin a prize wheel. $7000 worth of prizes and there’s not a single item that I don’t want in this store, you guys. So, at the end of this week, head over to Moorea’s shop with a friend and treat yoself!
I studied business in college and I’ve written about Moorea’s business for several assignments because not only is she a total #girlboss who taught herself how to run a business (no, really, she didn’t go to business school!) but she has completely nailed it in terms of building a brand, a community, and a business that gives back. If you didn’t know, Moorea has her second book coming out soon and she’s already working on a bunch of other exciting endeavors. Oh, and 7% of all profits are donated to charities. So, while you shop all these amazing brands in Moorea’s store, you can know that you are supporting many other local businesses and even charities.
Thanks to Sydney from Gossip & Glamour for throwing an amazing party and for Moorea for opening her store to us! There were so many sponsors that provided treats for the night and we all left with the most amazing swag bags! What a fun evening – I hope you get to visit on Friday evening to join in on the fun! If you’re not local to Seattle, you can always shop online at mooreaseal.com.
