Happy New Year

Hi Friends,

Wow, what a year 2020 was.

However, we're entering 2021 with so much gratitude and appreciation for your support during the past year, not only for our business but also for our efforts in the community.  In 2020 your support helped keep our doors open at both locations, helped keep our entire staff of 25 continuously employed throughout and helped us, in turn, support our most vulnerable and at-risk community members.

Throughout the year, your support, and that of our brand partners, has allowed us to raise money, donate goods and volunteer our time for groups such as The Seattle Stand DownLabateyah Bridge Housing Program, Ballard Food BankDuwamish TribeThe Sacred & The Snake, and various, community-led, mutual aid groups. 
In partnership with vendors like Teva, Hoka One One, and Eric Michael - who collectively shipped us hundreds of pairs of shoes and boots to give away, to Tuft & Needle - whose partnership and generosity allowed us to purchase top-quality mattresses for Labateyah, and to individual donors - who made substantial monetary contributions, we have been able to come together to empower your shopping dollars and give back to the community, speaking truth to the idea that "we take care of us".

With that, we move into the new year with hopeful hearts and a continued commitment to serving you and our community at large.  So let's kick the year off with a Big Sale, 'cause, why not!  So come on in, or shop the website, for savings of 30-50% on footwear, clothing and accessories!!!

Happy New Year!

With gratitude,

The team at Market Street Shoes Continue reading

Local artist, Rachelle Wirfs, donates piece to benefit Labateyah Bridge Housing.

Local artist and good friend, Rachelle Wirfs, is donating this beautiful piece of pyrography - The Homecoming - to be auctioned off as part of our fundraising efforts during Ballard Gives over the black Friday weekend. We have partnered with Labateyah Bridge Housing for many years for this event, and this year will be no different. 

Labateyah is in dire need of new beds as the house's current beds are several years old and were donated from a local university's dorm rooms that had already seen substantial use.  All of our fundraising efforts for Labateyah through the end of the year will focus on acquiring new frames and mattresses for their residents and we hope to raise the $8,000 necessary to replace all 25 beds.

Rachelle has been our featured artist during December's Art Walk for several years and expressed her desire to get involved and have The Homecoming auctioned off for the Ballard Gives event with the proceeds benefitting Labateyah as well. 

We hung Rachelle's piece today so that it will receive maximum exposure, with the auction winner being announced on Monday, November 30th, following Ballard Gives.  We will have an auction form on the wall next to The Homecoming, so stop by or call to place your bid or check to see if you've been outbid.  Bidding opens at $100.00.

The Homecoming measures 23"x8.5" and features a combination of pyrography and staining on a live-edge slab of Maple.  It is suitable for wall hanging.

Now Open Under Modified Phase 1

Super excited to announce our reopening under modified Phase 1 rules.  We'll be open 11 Am until 6 PM in both stores with limited capacity, but our doors will be open. 

We've spent the past few weeks getting ready for Phase 2, with new store arrangements, healthy distancing markers, hand sanitizing stations and new fitting/try on areas, so we're really excited to put it all into practice under the modified rules.  

We'll continue to offer web and "curbside" pickup orders for those that aren't quite ready to venture in store.

Curbside pick-up given the green light.

After much confusion and lack of clarity between the Governor's office and city officials, it seems that we have been given the go ahead to offer curb side pick-up.  While we don't have a formal plan in place for what this looks like for MarketStreet Shoes, we should have that figured out within the next day or two.  As soon as we roll out curbside it will show as an option when checking out.  Stay tuned, we'll update you soon.
