[photos|travel] The Star Wars Shop in Aberdeen, WA

Yesterday, Donnie Reynolds, [info]the_child and I headed to Aberdeen, WA, to the Star Wars Shop there.

Donnie and [info]the_child were shooting footage for a short film documentary project on the store and its owner, Don Sucher. I was along as a lower-tier assistant and generally just to watch.

The place is amazing. Nutso amazing. There's an estimated 70,000 pieces of Star Wars memorabilia in the store. Along with a bunch of other stuff, including some Kurt Cobain memorabilia, and other science fiction tv show and movie stuff. Even minor sidelines in Lord of the Rings and The Simpsons. It's a toy collection that metastasized then miscegenated with a pawn shop.

[info]the_child worked second camera, did some interviews of store employees and customers, and shot a lot of stills. It was great fun to see her working, engaging with people, being thoughtful and smart and creative. Me, I wandered around and took pictures and mostly listened.

There are stories to tell here, but I'll wait for Donnie and [info]the_child to tell them on film.
