I opened a brick and mortar shop called Ugly Baby and La Ru with my business partner and friend Rosalie Gale (Ugly Baby) in October of 2012. We are located in the historic Pike Place Market. Our tiny shop (only 300 sq ft) carries our artwork and DIY craft kits. Our art studio is directly above the shop, which allows us to create our art in the shop. We host many events such as Bunny Party! A fundraiser for the Seattle Animal Shelter every April, Etsy's Birthday Party every June, and occasionally craft nights and craft classes.

Thanks for visiting my etsy shop! Let me know if you have any questions.
