Don’t Miss Bella Umbrella in Ballard

May 5, 2010 in Ballard

As everyone who has spent a Sunday afternoon (or a Tuesday after work for that matter) knows, Ballard is walkable.  Our clients who want an urban village atmosphere, with wonderful ethnic and long established restaurants, herbal shops and consignment shops happily interspersed with great pubs and classy restaurants, and a sense of the beat going on, Ballard is first choice.  Suffice to say there is a neighborhood organization devoted to greening the neighborhood, which is fairly green already to the eye of a casual observer.

A friend of mine once said the residents mostly don’t go out of Ballard all weeekend, why would they with the best of everything … yes… right there accessable by walking?  And for those who opt for a home twenty blocks north, a five minute bike ride.  But I wanted to share with you a little corner tucked off the main Boulevard which has a compendum of special little shops… a bakery, a restaurant, a hair salon, a pub… and maybe most impressive of all, an umbrella boutique.
