Since 2008, Casita has become the go-to gift and treat-yourself store in upper Capitol Hill.
It’s the world in one charming store–with indie fashion for women, tees, jewelry, socks, baby gifts, home decor and great greeting cards. And we do free gift wrapping.
Almost everything we carry comes from small producers. Many items are local (we design some of the tees) but we also bring in handmade items from select artisans across the US and world. Wherever possible our international items are fair trade but all are ethically produced and/or give back to charity. All are beautiful and unique.
Originally built as a garage for the house next door (now Ada’s Technical Books), the building converted to a store many years ago. Shoppers now stand in a space originally meant for a Model T.
Dogs are welcome—our regular canines know all about the treat bag behind the counter.
Over the year’s our wonderful customers have helped us raise thousands of dollars for rescue animals and other causes through their patronage. See our events page for our latest fund raiser.
