Seattle-area Mobiles R Us?

Where in Seattle-ish can I buy a hanging mobile?

I want to buy a mobile to hang in my stairway. I need to get it ASAP (while the painters with tall ladders are there). Where in the Seattle area should I go?

I'm imagining something plexiglass or glass, as it'll be in front of a window. Colorful but not a nursery mobile. Long, not wide.

I don't have the budget for custom work, nor the time to make it myself.

It's going to be tricky to find something you like on short notice. You might have some luck at Pike Place Market or the Seattle Art Museum gift shop.

I was going to suggest that strip of furniture and design stores in Belltown.

There's a place on Western at like Lenora that I've seen them hanging out in front of.

Call and ask The Seattle Design Center.

Call Seattle's Ten Thousand Villages. They usually have a couple of mobiles.

Look for a mobile on Sometimes you can get very nice handmade things at low prices.

Good luck.
