Satisfy a hungry army for a song with yeasty goodies and confections from this Seattle original. – Down to Business
The smell of dough and donuts clings to the air. Pop tunes squeal from a boom box. The red and white squares in the linoleum floor conjure images of Donna Reed's larder. Regulars share the latest news as shopkeepers direct them to fresh arrivals and especially good values. It feels like shopping in the 1950s--and nearly at those prices. Since bakery founder Giglio Gai first sold bread door-to-door eighty years ago. In addition to breads and rolls (some of which grace the baskets of Seattle's fine eateries) and Franz buns (good enough for McDonalds), the Thrift stocks bargain staples?such as granola bars, gravy mix, spices, dip, crackers, soup mix, soda and ice cream sandwiches.
What You'll Spend
Not much. Sour rolls (exactly like those served at Seattle's four-star Canlis restaurant) are $1.99 a dozen. Designer breads, such as Signature Chiavari with calamata olives, cost a mere $2.20 for 3 loaves. Snag a bag of Murray Strawberry Creme Cookies for only 99 cents.
