Pass on the traditional snow globe — this is Seattle, after all. Opt instead for a locally made RainGlobe.

This unique desk accessory or keepsake for visitors drips water onto a landscape that includes the Space Needle, Great Wheel, Smith Tower, a Washington State Ferries boat and Mount Rainier.

Made of durable plastic, the RainGlobe is the brainchild of Josh James, who found himself at Sea-Tac Airport wondering why snowglobes were sold in a place where it rains more than it snows. His friends, Fred Northup and Scott Larson, helped bring the idea to life.
