10.27.2014 The End of an Era on Ballard Ave
The news is out! The For Lease sign is up! Portalis Wines is nearing the end of our 10-year lease in this spot (12 years on the street!), and we've decided it's the end of an era for us on Ballard Ave. What a run! When we first opened in 2003 (up the street at 5310 Ballard Ave) Ballard Bookcase was across the street next to Ernie's motorcycle & metalworks shop (now Bastille). Ernie had "The Pisser" in the window, a life-size metal figure of a man ready for you to hook up your hose so he could water your lawn as he did his business! Anyone remember? The Wilson Ford building was next to us, empty and dilapidated. Madame K's was still on the block. Ballard Hardware was in its original location, and we could go on!
