    Sharing Costumes

    Perfect for the occasion

    While Danielle was trying on the Christmas tree hat I found this little rainbow beauty. We were on the third floor of the store and surrounded by all kinds of bizarre items. For some reason this just seemed like the perfect hat for the moment. If you visit Ellicott City allow yourself sometime to have fun in this wonderful little store.

    Barry wears many of the costumes from the store out in the street when he makes the bubbles. You can see him in Bunny suits, and Santa suits. As we were leaving today he was dressed in shorts and a multicolored top. And on his head was a hat exactly like the one I tried on. His picture is in the must see activites section of this page.

    Danielle dons a lovely Christmas bonnet!

    My daughters and I spent one Sunday playing tourists in Ellicott City although we live on a few minutes from the area. It was fun to go around and discover places we had never bothered to visit before. We went into the store owned by Barry the Bubble Guy and his wife. The store is a full three stories tall and full of strange and bizarre stuff. Here Danielle tries on one of the many costume hats in the store.

    Many people of different cultures live here. We all get use to each other and appreciate each other's way of living and culture. There are mostly residents in parts of Ellicott City. In restaurants, people should leave tips if they see others doing it. Some restaurants include the tips in the bills. As I have said before, many people from different cultures live here. Everyone one is wonderful here. To greet people, just say hi or wave your hand. Most people will probably respond to your greeting.
