Originally built in the early 20th century for food storage, the Grange Mercantile building in Issaquah, located at 145 Northeast Gilman Boulevard, was later used as a meeting hall, dance hall and banquet facility. In 2022, the Grange Mercantile building continues the tradition of hosting community-based activities.

Revolve Consignment is the only women’s clothing store in downtown Issaquah and offers high end clothing in a range of styles and sizes.

“I love this consignment shop,” said Cassandra Maughan, a superfan. “Owner Terri helped me find some stylish pieces I love. Definitely a sweet little Issaquah gem to check out.”

Forest Fairy Bakery consists of whimsical décor paired with freshly baked goods, including sourdough bread, brioche rolls, challah, and honey nut bars, among others.

Puget Sounds Piano School has been offering piano education for children and adults of all levels since 1999.

“At Puget Sounds Piano School, there is a teacher to fit every student’s personality and pace of learning,” said Lisa Callan, patron. “Weekly piano lessons, monthly theory lessons, piano parties, concerts, and the occasional open-mike piano playing…are all part of the experience.”

Registration for the Puget Sounds Piano School piano summer camp are now open.
