Our horoscope says change is imminent. With that, we’re announcing a new moon at DailyCandy Seattle: Instead of just local news, our weekday e-mails will now bring you the latest and greatest designers and products available online. We’re also launching a Sunday e-mail chockful of Seattle openings, sweet deals, and charming diversions (starting this weekend). Of course, you’ll still get Thursday’s Weekend Guide. And as always, we hope to be a bright star in your day to day.
