I’m Lost! What’s Nearby?
Don’t worry; you’re probably in the right place if you followed an online map! Our store is tucked away in an office building within the Orcas Business Park, and you can easily spot our building directly across the parking lot from USPS. Other nearby landmarks include SANCA, which is in the building behind ours, and the Georgetown Playfield, which is just a couple minutes down Homer St from us.
If you’re coming from 4th Avenue, you can turn onto S Orcas Street next to the Seattle Design Center and follow our blue signs straight ahead past USPS then left into the parking lot!
The Door is Locked! How Do I Get In?
The front door to the building stays locked, so give us a call at 206-209-9352 to get the door code for entry. You can punch in the 4-digit code at the keypad to the right of the front doors then pull it open; no # or * required! We are located on the 2nd floor in Suite 217. Give the doorbell a ring and prepare to enter the crystal vortex!
Is Your Store Accessible?
Unfortunately, the office building we’re located in does not have an elevator, so we are not wheelchair accessible.
Regarding other accessibility concerns:
- Spoons (Sensory & Energetic Overload): We have a couch for those who require breaks during their crystal shopping.
- Noise Level: Music is generally kept relatively low, and though we occasionally get busy, our space is generally happy, grounded, and more on the quiet side. Earplugs are available upon request if auditory processing is a challenge.
- Germs and COVID Safety: Masks are optional in the shop, and we do have precautions in place such as UV air filters and regularly cleaning common surfaces. Please note that we do ask our guests to use hand sanitizer at the door as an extra precaution to help protect our other customers and staff; we’re happy to make exceptions for those with skin allergies or other such conditions.
- Restrooms: There are restrooms available on both the first and second floors.
Is Your Store Child & Pet Friendly?
Yes! However, we do ask that you stay with kids and pets at all times while visiting as our store does stock toxic minerals. We do enforce a You Break It, You Buy It policy as well, so please make sure your little ones and furry friends are well-supervised and gentle with our delicate stones!
Do You Offer Other Services?
We do offer paid crystal identification services! Identification starts at a flat rate of $20 plus $1 per stone we’re able to identify. Depending on the volume of stones you need to be identified and the time necessary for the service, additional charges may apply. Please call ahead if you’re bringing in stones for identification services so that our staff can be prepared to help you!
We do not offer the following: gem appraisal services, jewelry repair or size adjustments, consignment/purchasing from individuals, or any kind of lapidary services such as geode or stone cutting.
