Lots of funky stuff to pick from. A good assortment of gag gifts, party supplies, post cards, snow globes, and costumes, including masks of every kind (horse, banana slug, pigeon, etc). Fun to browse but priced decently enough to actually buy something too!

There's so much in this store and you're almost guaranteed to walk out with some kind of impulse buy if you have any sort of sense of humor.

Every time I go to Archie McPhee's I find something. I don't know how they decide what things to stock. But I really enjoy each time I stop in. They keep in supplied with plastic cocktail monkey's. If you're visiting from out of town this is a good place to find a strange Seattle souvenir to bring home as a... More

I had been getting their catalog for years and knew if I was in town I would have to stop in. Great staff - very nice and friendly. Store is full of fun, kooky items.

Such a fun little store, they have interesting, crazy things you can't find anywhere else. Your kids any age will love going there. If you are trying to find joke gifts or something different this is the place to go.

McPhee's has been around for a good while now, and while you can count on some things always being there year after year, you can never be sure where the crazy creativity of the place will go. A good example is the ever-growing collection of action figures, from the Crazy Cat Lady to Albert Einstein. Go in, take some time... More

Fun store with the most eclectic inventory. So much stuff from your childhood (i.e. Sneezing powder, woopie cushions, masks). Couldn't get my kids to leave in under an hour. Really fun store.

A definitive Old School Seattle experience, Archie McPhee has morphed over the years from purveyors of cast-offs strange and unusual to being primarily manufacturers of the strange, unusual and mass produced (aka Accoutrements). Originally Archie's was located toward Lake Union on Stone Way and you could find novelties (the oft mentioned rubber chickens, squeezee aliens, et al) and wonderful dead... More
