Shopping in Seattle

Shopping in Seattle | The Stated HomeWe expected to really enjoy our recent visit to Seattle, thanks to its fresh seafood and coffee on every corner, but we didn’t realize all the places there would be to find American-made items.

We’ve got your must-shop places here along with a few other recommendations to make sure you eat well along the way. (more…)

Attractions in Honolulu You Can’t Miss

Attractions in Honolulu You Won't Want to Miss | The Stated Home

The water is some of the bluest you’ve ever seen, the dining options are unique and delicious, and there are wonderful shops and goods you won’t find anywhere else in the US. (more…)
