Business Spotlight: Driftwood Modern

Small businesses and the people who own and work in them are the heart of our Edmonds community. To keep our downtown thriving, it’s more critical than ever that we think local first.

In this new series, we will be highlighting independently-owned businesses, and learn more about the folks that make them run!

Meet Hannah Alex-Glasser from Driftwood Modern.


What is your favorite part of your business?
Gathering together artwork and home furnishings that have integrity, character, age and beauty and offering them to enhance others’ living spaces. “Beauty in our lives!”

Why did you start your business?
Already being an artist, I was also interested in the pieces that populate our homes, functional and aesthetic—and also to build a livelihood.

Why did you choose Edmonds for your business?
I live here and it is a charming, lovely place.

What is unique about your business?
Driftwood Modern is the only gallery in Edmonds that offers an eclectic array of original and unique art and furniture pieces authentically from the mid-20th century.

Why should people do business with you?
If they love objects with character and authenticity in an individual, personal setting—they should come on in!

What are you currently doing differently during this time?
Requiring masks, distancing, hand cleaning and limited number of visitors at one time.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself!
I was a professional ballet and modern dancer in earlier years. 😁

Is there anything else you’d like to tell us about your business?
I hope through presenting art and objects of beauty and integrity for folks’ living and working spaces—to add little pieces of harmony and peace to the world.
