If you like quirky, odd, fun kinda stuff, you'll like this store. Fun employees and silly humor abound. Low quality stuff, but most gag type items are.

Archie McPhee is the only Seattle store I go to where I often hear laughter in the aisles. That's because many of the items are laugh-out-loud funny (emergency "meow" button) or just downright weird (giant stuffed rat). And if bacon's your thing, then this your...More
