DTK Spotlight on Asher Goods

You know the store…every time you pass by the glass garage door facade on Lake Street you can’t help but to smell the leather and cedar.

20141024_133449-1

The name, Asher, is partly derived from the Hebrew meaning for good or blessing.

The store exudes the warmth of a cabin and provokes a sturdy approach to mens fashion.

Walking inside you may get half of a nod from the stores “mascot” Dino. He lays under the table most days hardly doing his fair share of the chores around Asher Goods.

Dino at Asher Goods

Store Owners Jerry and Matt have put together a thoughtful collection of clothing and accessories to help keep the men of Kirkland looking rugged yet polished. Which – isn’t that the perfect Pacific Northwest blend?

Asher Goods opened here this summer after 2 years in Ballard and hit the Downtown Kirkland scene with a much needed manly inspired splash!

Q and A:

Kirkland Peach: What’s your favorite part of owning a store in Downtown Kirkland?

Jerry: The loyalty is fierce! Kirkland loves to support it’s own!

Kirkland Peach: What is your favorite product in the store?

Jerry: It’s hard to pick one! But typically anything made my Filsen.

Kirkland Peach: What is your favorite place to shop in Kirkland?

Jerry: When I’m not holding down the fort at Asher Goods you may find me at The Epicurean Edge.

If you haven’t yet, check them out and give Dino a little pat!!

7 Reasons Juanita is Rad

1) It’s like Downtown Kirkland, except even more chill. You can def walk the dog in sweats sans make-up.

2) There’s more accessible beach front and even *SAND* at Juanita Beach Park then there is at Houghton or Marina Park.

3) Someone at Jackson Cellars liked it so much they released “The Juanita Collection” wine.

4) Spuds has been selling fish-n-chips here since 1969.

      
6)   Walk, run, bike…there are loads of trails and docks and bike lanes. And parking is free which comes in handy for the Juanita Friday Night Market 3-7pm.

7) Home and Condominiums are consistently $50,000-$100,000 less expensive for similar properties in Downtown Kirkland, Moss Bay, Houghton and Highlands and even the Waterfront.
