One of Seattle's sweetest spots for impeccable Asian antiques with history lessons attached.. In Short Owner John Fairman's family started the original Honeychurch in Hong Kong. Fairman and his wife, Laurie, have perpetuated the store's tradition of exquisite Eastern antiques in their Seattle location since 1977. The rooms are uncluttered and museum-like: 2,000-year-old sculptures and 100-year-old tobacco boxes bear tags with extensive descriptions of their origins and meaning. The Fairmans' scholarly knowledge of their wares ensures every item's unparalleled quality.
