Feeling a little Anti-Valentines Day?

You don't have to love Valentine's Day. You can hate it. It's okay. Whether tongue in cheek - or dead serious, there's no need to be all lovey-dovey.

At Ugly Baby and La Ru, we have the perfect gifts for Valentine's haters. And for under $15. A print of some cute animals fighting? Art to hang in your shower that tells the world your thoughts on marriage? Yes. Yes. Yes. Oh, yes.

Valentines Day: Love it or Hate it... It Still Happens

That one made-up holiday for people in love is coming up soon. Valentine's Day. That's the one.

You either shower each other with gifts and go out for an overpriced and crowded dinner with everyone else in the city who loves someone. Or maybe you detest the whole thing - relationship or not - and stay home to boycott the whole deal. Either way, we're on your side. Yes, we at Ugly Baby and La Ru are stradding the fence on this divisive issue.

To Valentines or not to Valentines. I guess that is the question.

Guess Who Was Featured in a Video About Pike Place Market????

It might be us. (hang in there until minute 1:28 to be sure)

Okay, okay. I'll ruin the surprise. IT IS US! A big thanks to the Market for including our new, little shop in their latest promotional video.

It was fun to make. We spent many hours outside in front of the shop waiting for the street to be quiet enough to film. Semi trucks, commuter traffic, puppies, loading and unloading -- we finally finished up indoors.

It's horrifying to hear your own voice played back to you.... but we'll try to get over it. EEEEeeeek!
