Have holiday shopping to do but sick of the same old stores?
Be thankful it's pop-up season. We've got the goods on all of Seattle's essential new temporary shops, open for this month only.
Madrona home decor spot Studio Montagne is closed to the public most of the year, but they open up at the holidays so owner (and Filson creative director) Anne Smith can provide you with truly swank up-cycled furniture and vintage items with a rugged Northwest vibe.
1130 34th Ave, Madrona (203-245-9501). Thu-Sun 10a-6p thru 12/23.
