Many a folk wonder why I be moving. It not because I not makin' any money. St Augustine has been the perfect place to move my business in 2008 from San Diego, CA to the East Coast. I transform my business from a mobile Dress Like a Pirate Photo Booth following the Pirate N' Renaissance Faire circuit on the Pacific Coast to a permanent full time store that sold pirate wares and takes pirate photos for the tourist market.
Avast all ye loyal readers of this fine newsletter. The rumours be true that Pirate Fashions be movin' the entire operations to Tampa, Florida in Dec.
In 2009 my store sat in a 300 sq foot mall space, in 2010 we moved into a 1200 sq foot 130 year old historical building. In 2011, we added a 1000 sq foot space fer pirate clothing and leather production. This year I attempted to purchase a 2400 sq foot historical building to combined both the retail store and production facility together. The 8 month in the making deal when to Dave Jones Locker. I had already given notice to move n' when I told them I be plannin' on staying, they told me they not be renewing the lease. So I be cursed.
I studied the charts n' figured out the best pyrating town in the New World be the home of the rich krewes of Gasparilla in Tampa Bay. I found a 4000 sq feet building on 1711 W. Kennedy Blvd near the University of Tampa, that I be in the process of converting to be the grandest pyrate store in the seven seas. I will be able to combined the store with the production facility to produce more custom pirate garb, accoutrements n' weapons.
