Is it like "one of these things, doesn't belong"?

(note punctuation)

I was born in that town BTW. Hope you're there for the beer and cheese.

Ann Althouse said...

We were there for the architecture.

edutcher said...

Sure.

It's just another schlock store, although I'd be interested in seeing their weapons.

Kev said...

(the other kev)

Is there any waiting period for incense weapons? I'm not picky.

Ann Althouse said...

If you get incensed, stay away from weapons.

JAL said...

Lovin' the peace symbol with the WEAPONS listing.

Maybe they mean throwing stars?

Like those are more peaceful than guns.

Walmart meets New Age

Must be Crack's shop.

More likely the weapons are to defend themselves against Crack when he sees the "New Age" sign.

Wasn't "Weapons & Bachlorettes" the B-side to "Incense & Peppermints?"

Something for everyone!

Its the Spencer's Gifts business model. Everything appealing to adolescents.

I like the effect of the front door. It's recessed in the shade but reflects the sunny street. I bet if you approach from the right angle you'd think you were entering a door into another outside world!

Those are not for you. They are Bachelorette Incense Weapons.

For that special night out with the gals, in case you run into a roving band of hippies, you can gas them with pachoulli and escape.


WV: donate. <--- How much did Althou.se cost?

ironrailsironweights said...

Dunno about the weapons part, but the other items may appeal to the ever-shrinking percentage of women who still remain in their glorious full-flavor state.

You can set the mood on your birthday before you get married with candles, incense, and power crystals while you smoke your pipe and flip your butterfly knife back and forth while admiring your sweet new bellybutton ring.

JAL said...

Ah, Freeman.

I take it you are a patron of such establishments.

Right?

Leon said...

does bachelorette bother any one else. it is a specifically male word that has been frenchified to be female. you are a maiden or spinster by all rights. it's like calling a cow, which the female of the bovine species, a bullette. maybe just me.

Clyde said...

Aren't the 'weapons' kind of out of step with the rest of the hippie-dippy stuff listed on the windows? I'm guessing they're probably like Lord of the Rings daggers and Star Trek phasers and stuff like that.

What do they mean by 'bachelorette' anyway?

JAL said...

Daggers, Clyde. Definitely daggers -- little ones with jewels and runes. And secret compartments for the eye of newt.

Kathy K said...

They have a website, too. 1990's style.

Swords and daggers. Peace, love, and bladed weapons!

The Crack Emcee said...

Things everyone's missing:

Out of all the "stuff" listed, there's only one spiritual belief - NewAge - and it's for sale.

There is nothing sold in this store, presumably, that is in conflict with this belief system - including weapons.

If you look at the symbols on the window, it's easy to see this belief system encompass' everything, but stands for nothing.

Everything about this store - including it's belief system - is tawdry, tacky, and cheap.

gerry said...

Maybe New Agist spiritual weapons?
