Imagine Tacoma – Olde Gift Shoppe #1

Looking for that quintessential Tacoma gift? Well why not check out the new Collections at the Imagine Tacoma Olde Gift Shoppe:

The Museum Collection

  1. A Tacoma Salt and Pepper Set: Put Tacoma front and center at this year’s gatherings with this stylish set featuring a MoG Pepper Mill and a salt block shaker of Alber’s Mill (the yin and yang of seasoning).
  2. A Tacoma ‘Pop’: Give those candy canes aficionados an extra charge this year with a distinctive lolli-‘pop’ that incorporates pockets of CO2 within the hard rock candy crystals.
  3. Seaform Umbrella: Stay high and dry throughout T-town under your stylish translucent umbrella.
  4. Museum Quality Ornamental Fencing: Now you can make any well traveled path all that more meaningful by obstructing and redirecting the route past safer and more lucrative endeavors (now available in convenient 8 foot sections!).

The Waterfront Collection

  1. Murray Morgan Bridge Erector Set: Build a scaled replica of the historic Murray Morgan Bridge complete with working lift mechanism (tall ships sold separately).
  2. Aroma Therapy Candles: A wide variety of scented candles are available – all contained within replica gas tank lanterns to make any holiday scene a wee bit more gritty.
  3. A Foss Finder: Never again will you have to figure out how the heck do you get to the Thea Foss Waterway. This convenient hand-held device is GPS compatible and includes a direct 911 interface.
  4. Season Tickets to the 2011 Tacoma Tugs Baseball Season @ Cheney Stadium on the Foss.

And stay tuned as more IT Collections are on the way to Exit133 in time for your holiday shopping.

I give this entry a sharpened Ticonderoga class NO.2 pencil level rating of 15, far in access of any previous level ratings awarded to an exit133 blog post.

Also I would like to offer my personal endorsement of these fine products!

No kidding.  I took this picture today.  Check out the “wayfinding” sign from h***:

That’s right.  Due to the confusion, chaos and wasted effort, a sign is needed for pedestrians to find Pacific Avenue even though the widewalk on Pacific is just a few feet away.  Walking through the maze will allow a pedestrian to gain “access” to the mainstreet.

Buy the Revels tickets!

At the performance you can actually sing along in your loudest falsetto and dance up and down the aisles (appropriately) and you won’t get thrown out of the theatre because the ushers would have to throw everybody out!

DO RE ME FA SO LA TI DOeeeeeee!

These are fantastic David! I would like to order some sets of the <span class=“caps”>MOG</span> Pepper Mill and Alber’s Mill salt shaker.

Next I would like to see a “Made in Tacoma” store.

I often sample the Tacoma Aroma Therapy generated from the industrial tideflats.  “Smells like Ass!”

Brilliant work Mr. Boe! 

All fans of “Imagine Tacoma” need to go to Revels and watch David make an Ox of himself.  He’s a natural!

At one point I was imagining the sea foams as candles.  But I see you’ve made the tanks into candles and I agree – more synergy that way.

So, I place my order for the salt shaker and pepper mill, the aroma candles (in a different fragrance from RR’s choice – perhaps moss or sea weed.)  And, of course, I don’t think it’s possible to pass up a MM erector set.

I would actually give the Tacoma Aroma Candles as gifts.  I really would.

Someone could make a mint off that…
