It's a long drive for some people to Edmonds, but maybe if we offer more Adventures...
The Edmonds Theater, originally named The Princess when it was built in 1923, still has its original balcony, first-run movies, and surprisingly cheap ticket prices, as well as all-you-can-eat popcorn on Wednesdays for $3!
Ever vigilant, the Snohomish County Squirrel Squad trains rigourously, only a chosen few making the cut.
Nama's Candy, an old-school candy store with jars of candy, a wall of licorice, a staggering display of chocolates, colorful lollipops, and gummi bears the size of a human head. Looking to fill your Victorian Curiosity Cabinet? Check out The Wishing Stone for jewelry made of trilobites and butterfly wings, fossils to wonder at, and glittering geodes.
By now it should be time for tea, and of course pirates!
They don't serve it, but they sell everything to help you to--Treasures and Teas, helpful and enthused about finding the perfect tea for your Picnic or Post Kraken-Slaying Soiree, and the mermaid, pirate, or nautical decorations to fancy things up! The tiny Edmonds Museum is in a lovely old Carnegie Library building built in 1910. They have a five-dollar requested donation.
The downstairs is full of old furniture, scenes, and contraptions from Edmonds history, as well as a model train showing the early days of the town, which a volunteer will enthusiastically run for you. Upstairs is a rotating exhibit, as well as a local research library available for public use by appointment.
Feast your soul at the Edmonds Bookshop! The enthusiasm of this bookstore is evident from the creative window displays to the proportionately enormous Young Adult section full of fantasy and sci-fi.
Buy that new Jim Butcher, China Mieville, or Cherie Priest here and keep local bookstores alive!
Bountiful Home and Nursery sits cozily in a small, 100-year-old house back off the Main Street of Edmonds, next door to the model train shop. From handmade semi-industrial light fixtures, to beautifully mixed flowers in a repurposed bird cage, to antique grave markers from France, you never know what you'll find here!
Don't miss the lovely small nursery in the back of the store, through the small side room filled with tempting handmade and unusual sweets.
Brynn Watson, a girl who grew up with her nose in Alice in Wonderland and The Hero and the Crown, hoping wistfully that she'd fall down a manhole into Wonderland.
Ahren Paulson, a guy who has always found great satisfaction running around our table, playing Magic Realm as twelve characters at once. Because some things are worth doing well.
Our brains alternate between Arkham, Victorian London, Middle-Earth, Ankh-Morpork, New Crobuzon, and wonder about Harlan's World.
Why not make them a place to feel at home?
