This weekend is Saint David's Day, and for the occasion I'm buying my wife a few items from Curio City, one of the neater corners of the web. (I fully recognize that the feast of Saint David, the patron saint of Wales, is not a big deal for most Americans, but my wife is descended to the second generation from Welsh immigrants on every side of her family, speaks Welsh, and lived there for some time, so anyway…)
We're big fans of Ken (no relation to the guy who occasionally blogs here), who runs Curio City, and really like his one-man shop, which as the name suggests offers merchandise curious, quirky, and funky at very reasonable prices. Ken blogs about his business, which seems to be a precarious but rare success story in this economy, at Curious Business.
And no, unlike bigger bloggers who seem to post Instantaneously about what goes on in the Amazon and other far corners of the world, I am not getting money, a sponsorship deal, or even a discount on dog frisbees, magnets, or offbeat jewelry for posting this. I'm simply posting about a neat store that sells neat stuff.
Of course I won't get a damned thing in return on Saint Patrick's Day. I don't have a drop of Irish blood.
