A couple years ago I stumbled upon a party taking place in a small shop celebrating its grand opening on upper Queen Anne Ave. A DJ had his turntables set up in the window and was spinning music for a crowd of people within. The shop was Bouncing Wall, a retail boutique and gallery for many local artists, designers, and craftspeople to showcase their work. I've since been in several times, finding useful and unique gift items, and beautiful pieces I could not resist. This was the scene in the shop the other night when an artist's reception was going on, and that's the owner, Kim, smiling behind the counter.
