Dressed for the Fest

The Trolls Nook Crab and Seafood Decor In the window of The Troll's Nook in Astoria (on 12th Street between Marine Drive and Commercial), you can find a crab-patterned bib that will keep your shirt clean while you pull your dinner apart at the Crab and Seafood Festival with gloved fingers and a wooden block. Allen, one of the owners, can be see inside the store on the left. The crab on top of the gold lamé head came from my store, and it was funny how it happened. The owners searched the Internet for plastic crabs, and where in the world do you think they found them? Two blocks away in Astoria! I hand-delivered the merchandise, and that's how we met.

The Trolls Nook Crab and Seafood DecorThe decor and featured items, of course, are in keeping with the weekend's crab and seafood festivities. I'll be watching this window for more fun displays as the seasons and events roll through Astoria.

On another topic, I want to thank Elleda Rhiannonn Wilson and The Daily Astorian for the flattering write-up of this blog in Elleda's "In One Ear" column on Friday, April 23. It was quite a thrill to read it!

What a cool looking store! I must go there the next time I'm in Astoria!

I tried to access Elleda's article online ... but, alas, I couldn't read anything because I don't have a subscription. Sigh. Congratulations anyway!

You should post a copy of the article maybe??? Uh, Please???

I love the bibs and the reflections are great. Hope the festival was mouth is watering for dunganess crab from the Islands! Great photos and thank you for sharing.

Congratulations on your new-found notoriety! Isn't that exciting! So happy for you!

I have never eaten crab (except for crab salad) so have never needed a bib, but I'd like to wander about in that store for awhile.

Very nice reflection shot, Sheryl!

Congratulations on your write-up! And this is a great story about friendship, too!

I checked the article, but Clytie is right: no way to retrieve it even before the seven days!
