Seattle Trading Post was forged under the WeWork roof in South Lake Union by Luna Alison Alvarez, Nick Lathe, Claire Lyles, and Stephanie Nilles. Seattle Trading Post connects the community of makers to allow people in the DIY community to learn from each other, and contribute their own skills. Developed for General Assembly's Web Development Immersive. The developers collaborated over a week's time before pushing their child to the depths of the internet.
