Ballard Avenue has really gotten to be the new address for cool shops. Lola Lola is one of the aforementioned cool shops. It has a very modern feel, which for me adds to the appeal. On a completely superficial level, one of my best friends is nicknamed Lola, so it always makes me happy to think of her. I love to wander in here and check out the cards and furniture and whatnot. It really sparks the creative juices.
