My favorite part about shopping at Queen Anne Dispatch is chatting about fashion with Mercedes and playing with Chico. Last Friday on my weekly visit I took Chico for a little stroll and we had a mini photoshoot. He is the most adorable dog ever!!! Queen Anne Dispatch is located at 2212 Queen Anne Avenue right next door to How to Cook a Wolf. They have great apparel, accessories, novelty items and stationary and the staff is fabulous! Click here for more info.
