Phase Two Interiors opened in Seattle’s Columbia City neighborhood on Dec. 4.

Seattle’s newest consignment store features everything from “the unique to the practical,” said Gigi Buchanan, a 32-year Island resident who opened the business on Dec. 4.

The merchandise at the store, called Phase Two Interiors and located at 3808 S. Edmunds Street in Columbia City, is gently used and consigned from individuals or estates. It includes sofas, dining, living and bedroom pieces, original artwork, home accessories, lighting and more.

Buchanan brings 14 years of furniture consignment experience and expertise.

Her goal is to provide “stylish home furnishings in excellent condition at affordable prices,” not “furniture from garage sales, thrift and discount furniture stores, but timeless pieces to enjoy for a lifetime.”

The Phase Two Interiors building is ideal for furniture; it has no columns to restrict furniture layouts or displays, Buchanan said.

She retained the original wood floors and structure of the roof, which is made of historic timbers that are 40 feet long and 20 feet high.

Potential consignors can email or bring their items into the store for consideration. Anyone moving or downsizing can take advantage of re-purposing and reusing items they no longer need or want, but have many more years of use – and make a little bit of money.

Go to for more information or call the store at 206-457-8419.
