Talk of the Town: Whimsies abound at downtown shop

Jenny Schnabel

“The Purple Avocado” isn’t hanging from a tree,

“The Purple Avocado” is a whimsical gift shop

At 904 N. Curry (Street, that is)

Stan and Sue are owners

With Bella their Yorkipoo

She just wants attention

With a little whine or two.

What are you into?

Is it an occasion you need a gift for?

Come and browse this little shop,

There are ideas galore.

There are so many things to look at

I will just name a few:

Jewelry, lotions, candles plant stakes,

Sun catchers, wonderful signs and artwork

It will be your go-to.

Purple is the color,

You can see it in Sue’s hair.

Purple pens and free gift wrapping

That is their signature fare.

Really I’m amazed

With all that’s in this shop.

You will have a wonderful experience,

You can shop and never stop.

If you need some magical fruit

Where really none are found,

Come see Stan and Sue,

“The Purple Avocado” is just downtown.
