You can stop driving by or walking up to press your nose against the glass. Pink, Spokane's newest and most unique shop will have a soft opening tonight in conjunction with First Friday activities and will open officially Saturday morning at 10 a.m.

The business is owned by partners Celeste Shaw (of the popular Chaps restuarant), Lana Neumann, Erica Parish and Chris Lynch. The women have been working in the former Luminaria space since March to create a unique and stylish place for local treasure hunters. As you might expect, Pink is filled with one-of-a-kind vintage and shabby finds as well as handmade and reclaimed objects. No space is left untouched. Even the massive vault will shine as a gallery for Lynch's paintings.

Neumann and Parish have filled one of the streetfront rooms with their unique handbuilt furnishings. Their use of vintage salvage including massive chopping blocks, industrial materials and soft-as-butter leather is attracting attention across the country. You can see more of their work at

Holly Baublitz and Becky Ellis from All That Glitter will be involved and have already relocated that beautiful old greenhouse from their shop in Spokane Valley. Now it shines in a corner of the new store.

Stop by soon and check out the newest old things in town. I'm sure you be tickled, well, you know.



Pink is located at 154 Madison, one block west of the Old Spaghetti Factory.

Hours are Wed - Sat 10am - 4 pm.
