Visit The Pirate Shop at 826 Valencia



The Pirate Shop carries an extensive array of essential pirate paraphernalia: various Jolly Roger flags, glass eyes, lard, spyglasses, skeleton keys, etc. It’s also a book store associated with McSweeney’s and The Believer literary journals, and an after-school tutoring center. However, while all pegleg and hook-hand needs can be met at the store may want to purchase a cutlass elsewhere as the following dialog illustrates

Customer: We’re looking for daggers. Pirate Clerk: I’m afraid we don’t carry weapons. Customer: No Weapons?! What kind of pirate store is this? Pirate Clerk: One that is also a writing center for kids. Customer: Touche.
