Retail stores were few and far between seven years ago when Stephanie Sheldon opened Noun- a Person’s Place for Things across from Zupan’s at 33rd and Belmont. Now this tiny storefront for Flip Side Hats will expand into the corner store next door and there is a thriving retail core in the heart of the Belmont Area Business District that includes Stark, Morrison and Belmont between 12th and 60th.
Check out the SE Examiner article about the Retail Renaissance on Belmont featuring Noun, Za Zen, Twill, Simply Vintage, Palace and Flip Side Hats and . . . . come check out these great stores on Belmont!
Big thanks to everyone who came to, donated to and contributed to . . .

It’s been a prize filled turn of the new year for renewing and new BABA business members. We launched our 2014 membership drive with prizes large and small donated by our own businesses.
Congratulations to Jehnee Rains from Suzette Creperie who gets to pop across the street to eat in a different restaurant for a change with her $25 gift certificate to Hoda’s Middle Eastern Cuisine. Jill Mason of Starflower will be getting $25 of her personal or business laundry done at Belmont EcoLaundry. Dr. Brock and his staff at Smiles on Belmont get a new CD to listen to from Tara Tibetan Collections. Our BABA president, Connie Ihrke, was jumping up and down when she found out she will be going over to Shakti House for yoga classes since more yoga was part of her New Year’s resolution.
And, of course, Sharon Rose from Rose City Acupuncture has been smiling since New Year’s Eve when she found out she won the big pilates package at Carpe Diem. Tell owner Tari Norris and her staff that you are a BABA member and join her for a 20% discount. . .
The best news from all of this festive effort is that our membership renewals and activations are up by 1/3. We are over half way to our membership numbers of 2013 already and well over a third of the way to where we’d really like to be to fund a strong and active Belmont Area Business District for 2014.
Local businesses between or nearby to 6oth and 12th, Belmont, Morrison and Stark as well as organizations that serve businesses in the BABA district are invited to be active, contributing members.
