Founded in Olympia Washington in 1998, Compass Rose offers beautiful and thoughtfully curated collections of jewelry, paper goods and home decor items. We carry a wide array of products, including brands renowned internationally and Pacific Northwest inspired and crafted artisan pieces. From lovely stationary to swank kitchen supplies and incredibly fun gifts, Compass Rose is your one stop daily gift shop.
We have two locations, in historic downtown Olympia and in Tacoma's charming Proctor District. Our professional and friendly staff and our fabulous customers have helped make Compass Rose one of the Pacific Northwest's leading independent retailers. We are embedded in our local Olympia and Proctor communities and are firmly committed to sustainable, innovative and ethical business practices.
Compass Rose donates approximately 10% of earnings to local organizations focused on improving our community, and international non-profits focused on alleviating poverty.
Giving back to the local and global community is something we hold very dear to our hearts. It also aligns with our business philosophy of building things up from the base. We are happy to know that the harder we work, the more we are able to give back to the charities we strongly believe in.
