Doesn't that store name sound deliciously outdoorsy? I stopped there for the first time today, thinking I might find some interesting bird feeders. They might have bird feeders in there somewhere, but I got a little distracted.
First there was the 1 acre jungle of plastic greenery. I've never experienced anything like it. Not only were there probably 25 varieties of fake trees, there were probably 25 of each variety to choose from. Three real unplastic birds flew overhead while I was surveying the indoor landscape the in awe.

The vast selection of home decor options were also amazing. How about a 2-inch bust of JFK? Or how about a 2-foot bust of some generic wigged white guy. You could put it in your living room as a conversation piece. "Yes, that was my great-great-great uncle Bob, the 3rd chief Justice of the Supreme Court," you could tell your neighbor, the young impressionable attorney.

Culture-snobs visiting your home? "Oh, isn't that a great replica of Swartzenrosenfluer? I just love his operas from the end of the Baroque period." And they will nod in agreement, rather than look ignorant.
Or you could just dress him up in seasonal attire, and pose him in a variety of compromising positions, like J.D. and Turk's stuffed dog in "Scrubs".
Come to think of it, how could I have walked out of the store without that plaster bust?
