WELCOME TO SAM SHOP!

About Us

SAM Shop supports the mission of the Seattle Art Museum by providing items that directly support local and living artists and artisans in our community. 

Purchases made in-store and online at SAM Shops contribute to the educational and artistic programming at SAM.

Our online selection is only a sampling of our broad range of products.   At our downtown SAM Shop location at the Seattle Art Museum and our Seattle Asian Art Museum location in Volunteer Park, you’ll find a larger selection of locally made jewelry, crafts, textiles, contemporary design, books, children’s items and much more!

The majority of our locally handmade goods are purchased directly from the artists.  These unique items take time to prepare - for this reason, limited quantities are available and hand-crafted items may each have a slight variance.

We will be adding new items frequently to our online shop selection – please check back in with us!
