A century ago, Seattle’s original Auto Row was home to chandeliered showrooms, which became all but forgotten after car dealers moved to the suburbs. By the post-World War II era, grand buildings on parallel Pike and Pine Streets stood empty. Low rents eventually attracted artists and musicians to the area, and the ’90s grunge scene spawned bars and music venues. In the last decade, preservation-minded developers transformed many of those automotive buildings into offices, apartments and shops, restoring original windows, old-growth beams and wood floors. Today the Pike-Pine Corridor is the epicenter of the popular Capitol Hill neighborhood, claiming some of the best restaurants, nightclubs and vinyl record stores in the city.

The challenge is on: buy American Made for the holidays and ABC News went straight to the source of American sourced and made holiday gifts for this powerful segment on U.S. jobs and meaningful holiday gifting. We think our founder Ruth sums it up quite well!
Owned by one of Seattle’s biggest art patrons, Ruth True, NuBe carries home and fashion goods, many crafted in the city. Everything has an eco-friendly slant. Look for richly re-upholstered mid-century pieces by Blanket and NuBe Home, playful silk scarf dresses by Christine Chaney Creative, and wood-and-steel dining table sets by Chadhaus.

Under NuBe Green’s owner, artists really come into their own. Along with her husband Bill, NuBe Green owner Ruth True is one of the city’s foremost art collectors. But after two years of developing in-house lines for her all-American mercantile, it’s looking like her real talent is artisan collecting.
