I am so lucky to be so close to this fabulous little store in Columbia City! ANDALUZ is one of those rare and wonderful Seattle Boutiques - the kind you might find in Ballard or Freemont. They fabulously showcase a collection of, as they say on their cards, "Garb, Gifts, & Eclectic Home Decor." You can find fabulous clothing - much of which is hand done by local designers and artists - as well as your favorite "indie" brands like Free People and Kenzie. You'll also find handmade jewelry and accessories, great books, the occasional toy and funky home decor. You can get a sense of them on their web site, http://www.andaluzseattle.com but you really have to step in to "get it." What will you get? A dress for you, a gift for a bridal or baby shower, a toy for your kid and then a beer at the Columbia City Ale House a few doors down the street. Yet another reason to love Columbia City!
