Ahoy mateys, are you looking for some really cool pirate gear? If so, ship out with me to Pirateria! This glorious pirate emporium is filled with everything any privateer, mutineer or buccaneer could possible need.

Come with me as we tour the store. Over there you see treasure chests to hide your ill-gained loot while on neighboring shelves are a selection of colorful head rags, vests, and pouches for your shiney doubloons and precious gems.

Need a new walking plank for your ship, a coil of rope, or some lime quinine to ward off scurvy while at sea? No problem. Check aisle nine. Do you or your crew of seafaring scallywags seek stylish stripey shirts, a new eye patch, or flashy big buckled shoes? No problem. This store is well stocked with all of these items as well as a selection of swords, hooks for missing hands and spyglasses.

Be forewarned, though, that no fisticuffs are allowed in this retail establishment. So if you encounter an adversary you need to settle a score with, you'll have to step outside to do so. And, if you are so inclined, you and your nemesis can declare a truce and head over to the Pirateria food court for some delicious grub and grog.

'So remember, whether you need a Jolly Roger, a treasure map, or just a feather for your cap, Pirateria is the most wonderful, plunderful pirate supermart! Look alive and do your part visit our newest location down by the ocean on the winding path behind the wisteria.'

Young buccaneers between the ages of four and seven will have fun visiting this special store that caters to a very special group of seafaring folks. It is fun, and the wacky and rhyming text will bring a smile to your little bucko's face. So ship out to the nearest bookstore or go online to fetch a copy of Pirateria!
