Each week Burien Daily features one booth at the Burien Farmer’s Market. The Burien Farmers Market is a Discover Burien event held at Burien Town Square Park each Thursday through the summer from 11am to 6pm.
Jill Griffin is a long time Burien resident and Washington native who creates completely original and custom jewelry that she sells from her booth at the Burien Farmers Market and online on her website and Etsy store, What A Good Girl. She received her Bachelors of Arts in studio art and since has been making jewelry by hand around the Seattle metro.
“Every piece of Jill Griffin jewelry is an original, combining semi-precious stones, fresh water pearls, glass beads and sterling silver. Intricate in design and organic in inspiration, Jill’s work demonstrates an excellent sense of color and craftsmanship. Her pieces are designed to withstand the wear and tear of daily use, making them as enduring in quality as they are in style. Her wide variety of necklaces, bracelets, anklets, and earrings offer something for every taste and occasion. (more…)

The second Park-N-Bark comes with a busy weekend in downtown Burien. On Saturday, Kevin and Sean’s A Place for Pets will be celebrating their 8th anniversary of business in Burien and B-Town DOG will be there to give out information on how the group has been working with the City to plan an off leash dog park.

Editor’s Note: On February 28, 2013, Burien will be 20 years old; just old enough to no longer be called a teen, but still not old enough to buy beer. To celebrate Burien’s exit from the teenage years, we are partnering with a number of local businesses to give away $20 gift cards. Each day we will publish an article about an independent Burien business who will be giving a gift card away. To win the gift card, all participants have to do is leave a comment on the article (the comment can say whatever you want and will not influence your chances of winning) and share the article with the hashtag “#happybirthdayburien” so we can track the posts. Winners will be selected at random and will be able to pick their prize up on March 1st at the appropriate participating business. Happy birthday Burien and good luck Burienites!
