Frameworks Northwest is located in the Lighthouse Center building just north of the light at Kearney St and Sims Way (Water Street). We are just a few doors down from the UPS Store, and Pacific Eyecare. The big white house with the Lighthouse is directly across the street on the hill. You can't miss the big Frameworks sign on the building.
Okay, so we're sure you have hard (or already know) that parking in Port Townsend can be a real ... um .. PIA! Well we have parking in front of the shop, in fact all around the shop. Yup, in the front, in the back, on the side of the building, everywhere!
Port Townsend is THE art center on this side of Puget Sound. Each year the town is written about in newspapers, magazines, travel and art guides. If you're visiting, plan your trip around the over 30 annual events, including the monthly art walk held on the first Saturday of each month.
Okay, so we might be a bit biased, but if you really want the best coffee in town then you must go to Getables at 810 Water Street. Pat will make you a true Italian coffee, LaVazza. While you're there, you will also find quick snacks, fixings for a lunch on the beach, cards, gifts, beer, wine and cider.
We are asked all the time about places to eat while in town. It's hard to just list one, or even two! Some of our favorites include .... okay, so that would get us in trouble! Really, check out these links for some great places to eat: Port Townsend Mainstreet and Enjoy Port Townsend
There are over 30 different events each year in Port Townsend. Even we have to keep a "cheat sheet" so we remember them all. These links will make it easier .... Enjoy Port Townsend | PT Main Street | Fort Worden .... oh and of course The Northwest Maritime Center and Centrum.
Okay, so we "jokingly" say that it is a city law that you must have a dog in order to live in Port Townsend. However sometimes we're not so sure that we are joking around. Yes, PT is a MAJOR dog community. It is very common to find dogs walking their humans up and down the street, besides the local shop dogs. So don't be surprised to find a dog or two when shopping, grabbing a coffee, or even in Frameworks Northwest. If you're in need of an overnight dog sitter, contact Chris | Remember, please do not leave your dog locked in your car, it gets hotter than you might expect.
