Meet Shandon Graybeal

Shandon is an avid reader, ferocious dog lover, and prides herself on perfectly placed cuss words.  She opened Alair because nothing felt as good as finding the completely perfect and quirky gift for someone, and she thinks that handwritten letters and cards are the only way to go.  She believes fiercely in community over competition and building up those around you.   Her favorite thing about owning a gift shop is being able to know the neighbors and supporting fellow small businesses.  She worked for years for breweries and Seattle is her 10th city since college in Ohio.  She lives in West Seattle- just a couple of blocks from Alair- with her three huge fucking dogs.
