April 2020 Spring Newsletter
Pike Place Market is considered by many to be the heart and soul of downtown Seattle.
While our storefront is temporarily closed, our website is still open! During the month of April, 20% of all sales will be donated to the Pike Place Market Foundation. The Foundation supports the farmers, growers, and small businesses that we all love at the Market, as well as the food bank, senior center, low-income housing, healthcare, daycare, and more. As a small family-owned business ourselves, we know that shopping local is more important than ever. With your help, we can make a difference!
Our annual Mother's Day Sethi Couture Trunk Show on May 8th and 9th has been postponed, but we have plans for a very fun giveaway. Be sure to follow us on Instagram and Facebook for details! Moms are doing more than ever right now, and we are here and available to deliver if you'd like to give her (or yourself) a lovely gift on May 10th. If you would prefer to shop in person when we reopen, why not treat her to a Fox's gift card? Gift cards are also a great way to support your favorite small businesses.
During this time our employees are being paid and are ready to help you! Keiko and Justine have both been at Fox's for over 12 years. Keiko is our inventory manager and keeps Fox's running smoothly behind the scenes. When she's not working she loves to garden and volunteer. Justine is our buyer and manages our social media accounts. If you send us a message on Instagram or Facebook, she's who you'll be talking to. When she's not working, she loves to quilt and sew.
Jerri is our appraiser and knows everything there is to know about gemstones. She holds a Graduate Gemologist degree from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) and is also a Certified Gemological Appraiser through the American Gemological Society (AGS). This certification is held by fewer than 400 people in the world! If you email us through our website, you will most likely be talking to Jerri. She loves the Seattle Mariners and is our in-house jewelry model.
Zoey is the third-generation owner of Fox's, after her father, Chai, and her grandfather, Sid. She took over in 2014 when we moved to our new location at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel and runs our small team with care and dedication. She's currently running Fox's via Zoom meetings while homeschooling her three children (aka our future bosses). She loves to cook and bake, and is involved with several local organizations.
We miss seeing you in person and celebrating your birthdays, anniversaries, engagements, and other special milestones, but we are still here for you. Please don't hesitate to reach out via email or social media. We love interacting with you on Instagram and Facebook and seeing your at-home jewelry looks, so keep tagging us and sending pictures!
