Rachel the Piggybank turns gold this holiday season!

Posted December 15, 2015

You probably know Pike Place Market’s mascot, Rachel the Piggybank, as a popular place to take your photo. But did you know that Rachel the Piggybank has been “bringing home the bacon” for the Pike Place Market Foundation since 1986, raising more than $200,000 and counting to support social services in Pike Place Market?

This holiday season Goldmine Design Jewelers, the Market’s fine artisan jewelers, created a solid gold Rachel the Piggy Bank pendent to do MORE good for the Market. This beautiful Rachel pendant is made of 18k yellow gold, weighs just under a 1/2 ounce, and has all of the important features that her larger counterpart – the torn ear, the enigmatic smile, and the lovely dainty hooves as well as the piggy bank slot on her back! And, the profits from the sale of each and every Rachel charm sold goes directly to The Market Foundation and social services in Pike Place Market.
