Ugly Baby and La Ru is an arts-and-crafts store where the owners create almost everything that is sold inside. In fact, their art studio is on the second-floor of this cute, bright shop hidden away on Post Alley. The products are all unique, funny, irreverent and kitschy, but they are all useful as well. On the shelves you will find items like soap dishes, tote bags, colorful artwork, t-shirts, buttons or even a D.I.Y. embroidery kit. Overall, Ugly Baby definitely merits a visit while visiting Pikes Place Market or when exploring the waterfront.
