Our 40th Year


1978 - 2018

August marks the 40th Anniversary since moving our business from San Francisco to Seattle. Previously we covered the Northwest from California and by participating twice yearly in the Seattle Gift Show.

Jill and Peter decided to move to Seattle as many new kitchen shops were opening and becoming dealers for their represented product line: Cuisinarts. They opened a new showroom in the 6100 Building Gift Mart in addition to one at the San Francisco Merchandise Mart.

Eventually the entire business was based on Northwest customers and the California operation was closed.

Bang-Knudsen, Inc. is now based in Seattle’s Pioneer Square and will entertain customers for their 80th Seattle Gift Show since 1978.
