Party time


We're heading here tomorrow to purchase items for a granddaughter's baby shower. In this store you can buy just about anything you could possibly want related to any kind of party...including a wedding party!

Decorative junk, I call it. But then what do I know, being a male type person?

I'd probably agree!

I hate shopping and junk.

Nice capture! :-D

Leif Hagen said...

Do they sell party drinks there, too?

Lily Hydrangea said...

we have "Party City" here on LI. I think it must be the same thing, though your sign is more interesting to look at!

Lily Hydrangea said...

PS
that is funny, "...male type person" LOL.

When I was in high school back in the early 1980's the word party took on a whole new meaning. I'm going to guess that party animals don't hang out there. :-)

I kid! Congrats, and I'm sure you will find many wonderful items for this blessed event.

Beautiful sky by the way.

@ Safe Leif - Only to Minnesotans in need of a little inner heat!

Don and Krise said...

That's one of those places where you see the over indulgent parents that spend five hundred dollars on their kid's first birthday, somehow thinking that they'll actually remember it. You get the grandpa pass though. ;-)

Kcalpesh said...

Agreed, even I'd call it the same. Decorative Junk... :)

Nice perspective on this shot and as always the colors look lovely!

tapirgal said...

I'm sure you could find something very cool and weird to dress up as. I dare you! :)

magiceye said...

Who wants a sophisticated and elegant sign to a party shop? Very good shot!

Small City Scenes said...

We have ;Party Universe' here. Well not in Stanwood but in a closeby larger town.

Snohomish County (the county I live in) is called the 'Horse Capital of somewhere--I forgot. anyway because it supposedly has more horses per capita than anywhere else.---so put up you dukes and come out fighting. hahahaha!!!

Lee Spangler said...

sounds like fun, although it is great to make your own costume.

Dianne said...

those places make me itch
I think I may be more male type than female

did you know there are dozens of ribbons appropriate for tying up favors in - why!! why!!

and don't get me started on "table decor"

but a new baby is cool, so very cool

Prospero said...

What time do they open at?

Lois said...

Looks like a fun place to shop to me! That's a beautiful sky behind that colorful sign.

Jacob said...

@ Lee - Yes, it is nice to make your own costume...so I don't need places like this! In fact, people often ask me, after I've risen and dressed and gone out and about, "Hey, where'd you get that costume?"

What?

Small City Scenes said...

Yes I think it is funny when a place says we are----whatever----but the most horses patoots just might be the winner---oh nevermind MB

Jacob said...

@ Small City Scene - "patoots"? You're so funny!

Jacob said...

@ Tapirgal - people seldom use the word "cool" to describe how I dress. Weird? Yes, that's it! No need to buy a thing!

I had trouble leaving a comment on the bank yesterday..my laptop is ticky some days..way to go getting the attention of the bank CEO, tho LOL. Nice shot, the bank architecture is a bit too modern for my taste, but what do I know, I'm a country gal.

I tried to avoid these party stores when my boys were younger..if you save more on the party, you can spend more on the present. That was my thinking, anyway. :)

Cezar and Léia said...

I hope you male type were treated to some candies at least... :)
God bless you!

Asta said...

Hi Jacob,

Hahahaha! I like your comment-:)
I hope they had a solution for you to have fun as well-:)
We don't really have baby showers here. For some odd reason. But we have halloween and easter and christmas. Lots of party shopping there you know-:)

Have a wonderful Saturday!

Best regards
Asta

Dan J said...

Agreed. Decorative junk...... but I yoo am one of those male types with a lack of appreciation for it....

The capture however is very well done.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Well, Jacob, I agree that it's junk AFTER the party. But during the festivities it makes everything seem more, well...er...festive. ;-)

Bibi said...

I love to scrounge around in these shops....

'Unforgetable' should have two t's. I always wonder how people can print signs that have words misspelled!

Jacob said...

@ Bibi - It's a sign of the time. U R rite!

Marie-Noyale said...

This is a nice picture of junk!!!

Buenos Aires Photoblog said...

Not my type of store to hang around in either. I bet you had an unforgettable time there and found some great buys. (;

Jacob said...

@ Buenos Aires - My time there was excruciatingly forgettable! But my darling Lois Anne found several things useful so far her planning for a baby shower...so, it turned out an OK trip.
