Hi. I'm Ali Brownrigg. Before I became a vintage slinger and before I was a fashion writer, I was an herbalist. It was a very cool job - making people feel better is a great feeling. Pre-Covid, Swan Dive was a brick and mortar shop in Seattle's Pioneer Square. And now, she's gone online - for the time being. As I’ve been creating Swan Dive 2.0 out of the ashes of the coronavirus, I found myself drawn to the natural remedies that I know to be safe and steady allies when support and comfort is called for. And boy, is support and comfort called for right now.
So, in addition to rad vintage, I’m filling Swan Dive with feel good stuff ranging from herbal and homeopathic remedies and flower essences to little luxuries like nail polish and fancy candles.
I’m aiming for good vibes only here. If you need a gift for a friend or a gift for yourself (always a good idea), then swing by and see what I’ve got in store - virtually, that is. I’m always looking for things that put a smile on my face or a balm to my heart - and I hope that comes through to you.
What I miss the most about being online only is the connection with you, dear shopper. I really really loved it when you walked into the shop and found the exact, most perfect item that was waiting there just for you. So, if you have a question about anything that you see on the site, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me here so I can help. I love to help : )
