Is anyone else terrified to his/her very core of this shop?
You should post more details like this so people will understand your comment.
lol i’m actually planning on going some time this week. stop in and see if i can find some oils and herbal medicines. I think the place is nice.
Another Arlington Ollie’s Trolley was located about a hundred yards away from this location where Vinny and Pedro’s is.
That is a great shot! I actually didn’t post a photo out of curiosity to see if anybody knew what I was referring to… like is this a local landmark I wasn’t aware of and should know about? It gives me the heebie-jeebies when I walk past. At first glance, I assumed it was a Catholic tchotcke shop (as a Catholic, I’ve seen tons of weird items for sale, not all of which rest on a dashboard), but then I saw all sorts of terrifying non-religious grinning figurines thrown into the mix. And discount phone cards. I’ve heard reports of parrot who may or not be living inhabiting the shop.
Ollie’s Trolley before Vinny and Pedro showed up such memories. Is it possible for Pedro and Vinny’s to have a outdoor gazebo where people can eat under? I wish there was still an Ollie’s Location in Arlington that way I don’t have to head downtown NW.
I’ve been in that shop. It’s very interesting in a weird sort of way. Here are some good photos for those of you who don’t know the store.
Thanks for linking that Sunshine! The statue of dollar-bill-beard Jesus is horrifying.
I can confirm the parrot living in the back room of the shop. He’s in a cage that’s under a painting of an eye with a knife through it hanging in the door frame. It’s a weird but cool shop- I like taking out-of-town guests there and freaking them out.
I’ve never seen the Parrot. I’ll have to look for it next time. I’ve never thought of taking out of town guests there! That could be pretty fun! I take them to Pike Pizza. They think they are going to have pizza for lunch and it turns out to be Bolivian food…..
Hank–the incense photo is pretty funny! If you haven’t been inside, just go.
The windows in this place look like they haven’t been cleaned in about 30 years.
Pike pizza is the best little gem in arlington best “pizza” in the area! Just kidding.
botanica bcoricua has been on the pike for how many years now???? I would say 20 years
