Wallcott's Design Store opens in Gateway Plaza

Scarves and purses in rainbow hues line the wall

Tucked away between the imposing facade of Toni and Guy's and a line of take-out restaurants in Gateway Plaza is the deceptively large space belonging to an upscale design store called Wallcott's.

One side of the store features home furnishings - dishes, tableware, and small furniture. The style ranges from elegant to shabby chic.

The other side has personal furnishings - handbags, jewelry, lotions, and a beautiful rainbow array of knit scarves.

Owner Louise Tremblay says, My dream was to open a unique store where you could find beautiful, quality items from home decor and accent furniture to jewelry and handbags, in a warm, beautiful and fun atmosphere. A place where people would say "It's one of my favorite places to go". 

The store features original art from local artists. "We want to inspire and support local talent and invite artists in the area to show their work."

The name of the store has personal meaning for Tremblay. "The name "Wallcotts" was inspired from my years of growing up and spending my summers with my grandmother at my family's cottage. My aunt named her first golden retriever Wallcott and she told me his name meant 'cottage lover.' The meaning is so fitting because it is still my favorite place in the whole world. That is the feeling I want to convey in the store."

Items in the store are unique and beautifully displayed, yet within price range for the community.

"We are very happy to be in Shoreline and are excited about our future in the community. Please come visit us!"

Gateway Plaza is located at the corner of N 185th and Aurora Ave N, anchored by Bartell's. When you go in to Wallcott's - tell them you heard about them from the Shoreline Area News.
