Fun shopping in Seattle that's NOT at a mall?

Hello! I am headed to Seattle next week and would love to do some shopping. Not into the mall thing (Dallas has plenty) but I do enjoy shopping. Any metaphysical, quirky, book stores, anything unique to the area would be great! Open to all suggestions.

Pioneer Square is, in my opinion, the heart of Seattle. Both historically, and personality wise. Great indie bookstores, coffee shops, boutique shops, and a few blocks away, the Seattle Waterfront, which features attractions like The Seattle Great Wheel, the Seattle Aquarium, and Ye Olde Curiosity Shop.

Deluxe Junk was a unique little shop! Has the weirdest/coolest things. I loved the antique book shop called Ophelia's Books, I'm sure you'll love it :)

Hands down my favorite shop in Seattle is Watson Kennedy! It is owned by Ted Kennedy Watson and it is everything French, and refined and glassware, and books and divine ribbons and jewelry and list goes on. It is very close to Pike Place Market http://www.watsonkennedy.com

 Capitol Hill Neighborhood if you want funky. Fremont Neighborhood is an awesome place to spend a day shopping and eating. Lots of second-hand stores. The best bookstore in the world is when the Seattle Public Library - Central Library has it's book sale, usually around this time of the summer, so check into when that's happening.

Pike Place Market would be perfect, its touristy and theres lots of small shops with food, art, crafts, flowers and trinkets, but its more flea market or farmers market than mall. The downtown area around the market would be good also, along with Ballard Neighborhood, Fremont Neighborhood, Capitol Hill Neighborhood and the University District. Pioneer Square is good for browsing small art shops and galleries.

Retrofit Home is really unique. They've got more than just home items, things like books, jewelry, etc. Archie McPhee is super quirky, great parody gifts.

Hey Jane! I just wanted to let you know about our mapping feature -- it's helpful to be able to visualize where places are. Plus, people can click through to them for more information, making your answer more helpful! I've helped you geo-tag the places in your answer on a map. In the future, you can do this yourself as you answer a question by simply typing the @-symbol followed by the name of the place. Take a look at your map next to your answer :)

 I'd recommend walking around Capitol Hill Neighborhood (pike/pine triangle - Twice sold tales, Edge of the circle) and Ballard Neighborhood for small, cute shops.
