WINTER Seattle rain isn't a thing that I must endure this year. There are so, so many horrid things about COVID, but the one not-horrible thing (I will NOT call it a good thing; there are NO good things about 4K Americans dying EVERY day from what is essentially a preventable disease) is that I am not tied to my studio, producing the next generation of Pike Place Pigs. So, I'll be back in the spring. I'm taking my dogs & heading for warmer, drier climes in my RV. May you & yours find a way to hang on to your sanity in these strange, strange times. I am hopeful, though, that we will begin to move toward better times, better lives sometime soon after tomorrow. In the meantime... I'll see you around the end of march/ beginning of April. Peace. _________________________________________________________________________________________________ Get an automatic 20% discount on orders over $47 until the pigs return to Pike Place Market daystalls, likely when King County moves to Phase 4 of the COVID Recovery Plan. _________________________________________________________________________________________________ By all means, PLEASE place an order! It'll help me feed myself & these sweet puppy dogs while we're out appreciating America's natural beauty. I just wanted you to know that it'll be a while 'til you see that pig!

About Us

Hello!  Thanks for visiting.  I am Stephanie Shull.  I've been making ceramic piggy banks since 1998. That was when I made a piggy bank for my 8 year-old daughter.  She loved it.... and so did everyone else.  I spent several years making them as gifts for friends & family.  In 2006, I decided to go into business & set up a stall at the world famous Pike Place Market in Seattle, WA.  The following year, I quit my "day job," and devoted myself full-time to making these wonderful piggy banks.  I make each one completely by hand, so every pig is unique.  I also include a collectible coin, where which indicates where I made it (currently Seattle, WA), and the year that I made it.  This little touch makes it a collectable keepsake that will be treasured by young & old, alike.  

I make each of these pigs, one at a time, in my studio (AKA my renovated garage). The name "Pike Place Pigs" comes from the place where I first offered these piggy banks for sale... Historic & world-famous Pike Place Market in the heart of Seattle, WA. Since 2006, visitors to Pike Place Market (tourists from all over the world & local Seattlites) have embraced these little piggies and taken them home to delight eager savers, young & old.

Who doesn't love a piggy bank? Think back to your childhood... What did your piggy bank mean to you? It was more than just a place to put your pennies... it represented endless possibilities. It allowed you to dream of what you would do with the money you were saving. It taught you to think ahead and to plan. For kids just beginning to learn the value of money, a piggy bank is an essential tool that makes saving fun. For adults, it's a bit of nostalgia. Regardless of age, piggy banks are just plain good fun for everyone!
