Queer feminist tarot deck in Seattle?

My friend mentioned a queer feminist tarot deck that she wanted that was available for purchase in Seattle. I don't know what it's called or where she saw it but I need to find it before Saturday!

I thought she said it was at Ada's but when I asked they were like "yeah no we do science here." Her partner and other friends don't know what it's called. I checked at Edge of the Circle and they said most of the queer feminist decks are out of print. I haven't checked Elliott Bay yet but that's next on my list. Any ideas for a queer feminist deck I could get her that's available in Seattle before Saturday?

My guess based on a time-restricted search online is the Next World Tarot, available at Elliott Bay according to the artist's site.

Is it the Numinous Tarot Deck? I think the artist may be based in Seattle. I'm not sure if/where the deck can be purchased in person, though--it looks like it might just be available through the artist's webshop. You might contact them...

It might be the Slow Holler deck, which is definitely queer and feminist, but also quite southern. It's fantastic. It's also maybe an unlikely answer, since it's been sold out for a while so probably isn't in stock at m/any bookstores.

I have absolutely no clue if this is available in Seattle, but could it be She Is Sitting In the Night/Thea’s Tarot? Very queer and feminist.

Could be the Dark Days tarot! Seattle artist who is married to a woman, beautiful queer friendly art. It's a gorgeous deck, you can explore it on her website.

Noel Arthur Heimpel, creator of the above mentiontiond Numinous Tarot deck, does indeed live in Seatle - so my money would be on this being the one. It looks like the deck is for sale here.

Any of these ring a bell? The shopowner's big on feminist queer alternative tarot decks.
