Green Lake Mom Sheryl wrote to the group about a new women’s boutique that just opened here in Wallingford:
I just wanted to let everyone know that the boutique Wish (formerly in Phinney on Phinney Ave) just opened in Wallingford. Very exciting addition to Wallingford!! Super stylish dresses and clothing and great jewelry with a VERY reasonable price point. Great for your own closet or as a place to get a reasonably priced gift! Opened on Wallingford Ave and 45th St, across the street from the Wallingford Center. (and P.S. I’ve got no affiliation with the boutique except that as a neighborhood resident I’d love to see it flourish and stay put!)
So, I went to check it out for myself and was delightfully surprised by their great selection of women’s clothing. I spoke briefly to Anna Ford, who works at the boutique, and she explained to me that the owners Sabrina and Shane designed many of the items. Anna tells me that they were in Phinney Ridge for awhile, but they came over here to Wallingford via their temporary Roosevelt location, where they hung out until they found suitable store space. They opened last Tuesday in the former Terra Hemp space (4419 Wallingford Avenue N.) and have quickly transformed the space into a cozy boutique adorned with some beautifully-designed lamps designed by Shane.
In addition to jeans, hats and scarves, they also have cute, reasonably-priced summer dresses, tops, and skirts. Plus, they sell an assortment of jewelry, including some of Anna’s unique Steam Punk designs.
Wish… will be open during the Wallingford Art Walk on June 6, so when you’re all done Flash Mob’in, Bollywood-style, stop in and say “hello”. They also have their Grand Opening planned for Wednesday, June 20.
Wish… is open Mondays-Fridays (11:00AM-7:00PM); Saturdays (11:00AM-6:00PM); and Sundays (12:00PM-5:00PM).
