Sip & Ship

I had to take someone into Ballard for an appointment and while waiting for them I saw this shop and was able take care of some of my own errands like pick up a gift card for an upcoming event, ship a little package I had to send, and grab a quick, delicious bite and cuppa, all in one spot. Didn't mixed use businesses like this die out back in the early 90s? Like Fred's Gas, Bait, and Sushi Bar? (I think that was actually a Far Side joke). This shop had some unique local items, plus lots of attractive gift items, paper goods and hand made cards. Their food and coffee(fair trade. . .yay!) was great, and they had a busy shipping and packaging counter with attentive staff; all this in a small footprint of a space called Ballard Mail & Dispatch Sip & Ship. A fun shop to browse, with useful services and good eats.
