Channeling Your Inner Pirate!
Running low on Black Beard Dye or eye patches? In need of some Mermaid Bait or repellent? Got a pesky case of scurvy? Then the 826 Pirate Store on Valencia Street is your one-stop shop for all of your nautical needs, from peg legs created by a professional prosthetic craftsman, hand hooks to spyglasses and treasure chests.
It’s important to know that none of the staff are named “Petey”, none of them like the cut of anyone’s jib, and none of them have any fingerprints. Actually some of them have missing fingers and at least one of them is missing an eye.
You could say they are a ragtag group of miscreants who sell pirate supplies in order to benefit the free writing-tutoring center for students’ ages 6-18 at 826 Valencia, and in classrooms all over San Francisco.
So when you need to spring for attacking mop heads, you can feel good knowing your doubloons are going to a worthy cause.
