George Moore is the third-generation owner of a family business that opened more than 60 years ago. True to its original purpose, the shop still sells sewing machines, cabinets, vacuum cleaners, and ceiling fans, but now aims to acquire equipment that is eco-friendly and ultra-efficient.
Alongside its retail branch, Moore’s nurses the machines it sells back to health and leads crafting classes. Expert stitchers lead hands-on sessions in everything from quilting to correctly taking the measurements of a restless scarecrow.
SEED People's Market offers a miscellany of handmade, recycled, and eco-friendly clothing, accessories, and home goods inside a 12,000-square-foot environmentally friendly department store.

You'll also find a large collection of Patagonia clothing, footwear, and outdoor gear made from responsibly sourced materials, such as the recycled polyester found in the men's Classic Retro-X jacket ($199).
