One store is showing their own signs of the approaching festivities with unique antiques not on most retailers’ shelves.
The artifacts store on the waterfront has decorated one of their windows with “all things pirate,” including ships, binoculars and daggers used by the men at sea warming people up for the celebrations.
Store owner Laurie Adams says after all these years the feeling of preparing for Pirates Week never gets old. “We look forward to it every year we always decorate our shop window to encourage people to come in and have a look around but also to encourage people to partake in Pirates Week,” she said.
Mrs. Adams says in the past there was a competition for the best dressed store window during this time of year and says it’s something pirates week organisers should reintroduce.
