I've lived in Kirkland since 1998 and Vince from Lake Street Diamond (106 Lake St) is one of a handful of merchants that I remember being around since my Day 1 as a steadfast and reliable community member. But after 37 years of helping locals design and select beautiful jewelry pieces, it is time for some well-deserved rest. He was reminiscing that when he opened in 1984, Kirkland was a sleepy little town even though, he chuckles, "there was no parking then either."
Our beloved Vince and his wife Lu are throwing a giant retirement sale with up to 70% off to clear out their merchandise before they close their doors in mid-January. And I know you love things that sparkle (or someone that does!), so hurry on in for the best selection and wish them well in their next phase of life. Not surprisingly, I was canvassing each case, and there's both casual and fancy along with a variety of price points for some early holiday shopping. I may or may not have purchased something depending on who is reading this ;-)
