Home Sweet Home

After spending the last year in Belltown, we decided we missed Ballard too much and have moved back. We’re excited about the new space and are in the process of laying down hardwood floors and trying not to chop off any fingers with the saw. One of the best parts of the new space? We will be opening a gallery, a dream of ours for sometime. We can’t wait to present work from some of our favorite artists.

I Know What You Did Last Night

We all have wild ideas from time to time. Sometimes we take them too far. Our resident wildman, Michael, decided to take his love for photoblogs to the next level by replacing the usual party pics with where the party really happens: on the dance floor. Let me see that fancy footwork and dance your way over to Last Nights Shoes.
