Moving with nothing, where should we shop for pretty much everything?

We are relocating back to the mainland US from Hawaii after being here for almost 11 years. Besides books, a few clothes, and very few tchotchkes, we are leaving everything behind since nothing is really worth shipping. It has been awhile since we've had any options, and I imagine there are a bunch of cool places to get household goods (kitchenware, furniture, kids toys, warm clothes) that weren't around when we left.
Specifically, we'll be in the Seattle area, so extra points for local stores but internet sites are good too. We aren't quite at the Williams and Sonoma level, but we do prefer less things of higher quality. Furniture-wise, we are a strange mix between clean lines and cool vintage.
Where should we shop? What cool kitchen items can we not live without??? Brands/models would be helpful! Where in Seattle can we get cool furnishings for the kids' rooms (that is the incentive for the 5 year old to move!)?
Thanks in advance!!
