Longtime customers Kathy and Bob, amongst many others, came out for Small Business Saturday! Kathy and Bob shopped at the Confectionery where they came in for our seasonal favorites—peppermint shortbread bark and sour santas—they're only here once each year! While in the Village they also stopped by Caldwell's, and Mrs. Cook's to support Seattle's economy.
We here at the Confectionery pride ourselves on being a small, local business. We've been located in University Village for more than 40 years. According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, small businesses have generated two out of every three net new jobs over the past 15 years and employ over half of all private sector employees.
Other local businesses in University Village include Swink Style Bar, Something Silver, Village Maternity, Glassybaby, Paint the Town, Impress Rubber Stamps, and Fireworks. You can see the University Village full directory here.
Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Confectionery on Saturday, we appreciate your support!
