Merry Christmas From the Hairy Tarantula

Hairy T Christmas 2014 Header

Around here, we’ve been known to boast that the Hairy Tarantula is only closed for two days a year – Christmas and New Years Day. It is then today, on one of our few occasions to reflect, that I’d like to thank each and every one of you who’ve helped to make the Hairy Tarantula such a great place to be this past year. Although few will remember 2014 as a banner year for anything, the simple truth is that our job at the Hairy Tarantula is to sell fun and that simply wouldn’t be possible without all of our wonderful customers. So, to you, the people who are still dedicated to having fun in a world that seems to border on absurd, I raise a glass on Christmas Day. May all of your holidays be merry and I look forward to joining you for another toast on Christmas next year.

Naturally, we will be closed today but don’t forget to visit us tomorrow for the first day of our famous, epic Boxing Week Sale!
