From November through December, we're having a weekly Ornament Scavenger Hunt throughout Pioneer Square every Thursday and Small Business Saturday (November 25th). Partnering with retail businesses and art galleries throughout the neighborhood, we're hiding one (or two or three!) ornaments a week for you to discover and take home. Each ornament is unique and handblown by Glasshouse Studios. There will be a total of 12 ornaments up for grabs. We'll post clues every week on our Instagram, so be sure to follow us and keep an eye out on our Stories!,
Did you find an ornament? Congratulations! The ornament is yours to keep and enjoy. Please let the employee know at the retail or gallery location that you found it in. They will ask for permission to take your photo to share on social media. Let them know if that would be alright!
Ornaments are available for purchase at Glasshouse Studios at 311 Occidental Ave S if you missed out on the scavenger hunt. They make exellent gifts for the holidays!
Note: The Ornament Scavenger Hunt is for Pioneer Square shoppers, visitors, and patrons only. If you're an employee of the establishment or a member of the Pioneer Square BIA, we kindly ask that you do not participate.
