Ravens Nest Treasure was started in 1989 by Matthew and Elizabeth Steinbrueck. We took over from a woman who had a similar store in this location for 30 years. Matthew is a Gemologist with a family connection to Native Americans.
We have the name Ravens Nest Treasure because Ravens are known to bring treasures back to the nest, and also the Raven is an important figure in the traditions and mythology of the NW Coast Native people. The Raven is known as a teacher and trickster helping people to learn important lessons about life.
Our store in Pike Place Market is known for having “All the Worlds Treasures in One Shop” . We have treasures from many cultures with a focus on Asian and NW Coast Native Art, and affordable quality jewelry. The common theme is one of genuine quality and cultural authenticity.
Our specialty is “The Art of Gifting!”
