The Ye Old Party Shoppe is the most fun shop for kids. In the glass windows, you can see what kind of stuff they're selling. They have party supplies, costumes and toys -- lots of toys!

For the costumes, for example, in October there's a costume room in the basement, and when you go to the staircase, the way there is like a haunted house. Also, there's pumpkin-painting and face-painting for Halloween.

They sell cards for special occasions, party stuff, candy and Southold souvenirs. And there's a toy room with marbles, puppets, art supplies and BB guns.

There's also a dollhouse and a toy train track and stuffed animals. There's a lot more stuff, so come on down to the Ye Old Party Shoppe. It is a great place just to visit, but I think they would like you to buy something too.

Their address is 53850 Route 25 (Main Street), Southold. Call: 631-765-5708. You can find them on Facebook, too.
