Robot vs Sloth Opens on First and Pine

Robot vs Sloth Opens on First and Pine

Posted January 23, 2018

Located on the corner of First and Pine, Robot vs Sloth is the new shop of owner/artist Lauren Rudeck. Though the shop is a Market newcomer, Lauren is no stranger to Pike Place. For the past five years, she was half of the duo behind Ugly Baby and La Ru on Western Avenue.

Now with more space to showcase her handmade art of "cute animals fighting each other," Lauren's original designs be found throughout the shop on t-shirts, buttons, pins, magnets and totes. Robot vs Sloth also features an expanded selection of paintings, jewelry, plush creatures and DIY craft kits from other local artists such as Starheadboy, Care It Bites, Narboo and more. For those who are artistically inclined, a variety of workshops will also soon be offered in a new classroom space in the back of the store.

Join Robot vs Sloth for a Grand Opening celebration on Saturday, February 10, 2018 from 2-8 pm!

P.S. Ugly Baby is still located at 1430 Western Avenue. Go check them out for artist Rosalie Gale's hilarious shower art, t-shirts, pins and much more!
