Ballard’s Romanza Gifts and Home Decor (2206 NW Market St) is marking 15 years in business (11 in the neighborhood) between August 15 and September 15 with specials and special events to celebrate the occasion.

Longtime Ballard residents and partners John Sterlin and Vince Harris opened Romanza 15 years ago in Belltown, with the current flagship Ballard store opening four years later.

“They weathered through many challenges over the years including a WTO riot in front of their store, a sizable and expensive earthquake, a dot-com bubble burst, a real estate crash and the worst economic downturn since the great depression,” reads a press release marking the anniversary. “While  not unscathed by the economic challenges, they still endeavor to bring their unique style to customers from their beautiful Ballard location on Market Street.”

Over the next month, Romanza will be offering free gifts with purchase, charity benefits, and the chance to spin the “Wheel of Mystery” for a discount on your highest priced item. Discounts from 15 to 50 percent will be offered on select items as well.

“Visitors to the shop experience the otherworldly feeling that accompanies amour,” reads the release. “A combination of intriguing offerings, a peaceful interior and a friendly staff account for the store’s loyal following.”

For the most up-to-date information on Romanza’s specials, events, and featured artists during the anniversary celebration, visit them on Facebook. For more information Romanza, visit their website by clicking here.

    I used to visit weekly, at least. But I haven’t been able to stay inside for long since it became so heavily, thickly stinky. Which is a shame, since I used to spend way too much cash there.
