Where To Find The Best Pop Culture Things In Seattle
Anything that is weird, wacky or wonderful, you’ll find it in Seattle. From pop culture to comic books and from practical jokes to Mickey Mouse watches, pop culture is alive and well in Seattle. The greater Seattle area is home to one of the largest producers of pop culture products in the world, the oldest comic book store and one of the best novelty shops of all kinds.
You can find comic book stores everywhere, but the oldest one in America can be found at the Pike Place Market at Golden Age Collectibles. The store has been in its same location (#401 on the lower level) since 1971 selling over a quarter of a million back issues of various comics, movie scripts, figurines, posters, life-size standees, photos of movie and TV stars, vintage toys, and a whole lot more. You don’t need to be a comic book fan to enjoy this store. Everyone is friendly and there is so much to look at.

In addition to finding a large assortment of trinkets and goofy gifts, you’ll find a mini museum of the weird featuring a walrus skull with three tusks, the vertebra of the world’s largest whale, shrunken heads, mummies, natural oddities, taxidermy treasures and who-knows-what. Located on the waterfront, this is a place that needs to be seen to be believed.

It’s been a long time coming, but finally the old viaduct is coming
"One of their team members stopped by my house on Lake Sammamish just two days before my property was to be sold at auction. I told them that I was under water and couldn’t sell. He insisted that I speak with Ky DeWald and Adam Mickelson to see if there was anything that could be done. I finally agreed. They were able to not only stop my auction and get me another 90 days in my house but also put over $125,000.00 in my pocket and sold my house for $1,550,000.00!!! I couldn’t be happier!!! Thanks guys for all the help!"
