Gear for Proud Locals

Just because you’re staying in and watching a lot of Emily in Paris and taking a borderline-unhealthy interest in The Home Edit and cooking and freezing way more turkey chili than the freezer can hold, you still gotta have some local pride. Olympia region totes, tees, mugs and other assorted swag are ideal for sharing the regional love with friends and family just next door or across the country.

Archibald

Sisters

For more than 25 years, Archibald Sisters has been the go-to spot for fun and functional personal care essentials for all ages, including a great selection of Oly swag. Opt for a tote, then fill it with some of the shop’s awesome selection, or build your own lotion to give. Lockdown Lavender and Vanilla Virus are catchy. Oh, too soon?
 

Ember

Goods

Nothing says I care more than the gift of a comfy, get-me-on-that-couch-right-now sweatshirt. Especially one that sums up where we’re at right now: Stay Home Get Cozy Drink Coffee. Washed to perfection and oozing that quarantine vibe, this gift will do more than brighten spirits. Ten percent of shirt sales goes to personal protective equipment and first responders.
