Ye Olde Curiosity Shop

Ye Olde Curiosity Shop has reopened! The waterfront seawall project has been mercifully put on hold for the summer, and the shop threw open its doors on schedule, July 1, 2015.

Ye Old Curiosity Shoppe

I remember going to the Ye Olde Curiosity Shop as a kid. Whenever we would drive by the building my dad would say, "Say 'Hi' to Sylvester." It was such fun going back as an adult, and Sylvester hasn't changed a bit.

[Connie from Seattle, 11/28/2012]

Sylvester is the Curiosity Shoppe's longest-reigning resident mummy.
