Sucher & Sons: The Best Star Wars Store This Side of Tatooine

If you’re a diehard Star Wars fan, you must—we repeat must—plan a pilgrimage to the epicenter of the Star Wars universe, Sucher & Sons Star Wars Shop. Search your feelings, you know it to be true!

We discovered it while blazing through Aberdeen, Washington on the way to the rainforestsĀ  (or Ewok Country as the owner joked).

The inventory is dizzying: 3,000+ vintage Star Wars toys and figurines, Star Wars games, Star Wars books, Star Wars legos and ships, and an entire rack of lightsabers.

Rachel’s favorite was a Hoth Tauntaun figurine that she remembered playing with as a child. Ryan’s favorite: Mr. Potato Head Star Wars characters Luke Frywalker, Spud Troopers and Yam Solo.

Collector’s items are stuffed everywhere and it’s impossible to soak it all up in less than a few hours. Whether you’re looking to spend $500 or $1, there’s something at every price point.

As the Yelp reviews rightly point out, this “shop” is practically a must-see museum. It’s a place you just have to explore. Sucher & Son is to Star Wars what the Little Lebowski Shop is to The Big Lebowski.

Perhaps best of all, Sucher & Sons is a place of camaraderie. We talked with Don, the store founder and an energetic diehard fan. He showed his Carrie Fisher tattoo while standing next to a life-sized replica of Han Solo in carbonite. And, in reference to the documentary The People vs. George Lucas, Don is a firm believer that Han shot first.

Don accepts orders by phone, and will keep an eye out if you’re looking for something specific. The phone was ringing nonstop while we were there, so we’d recommend giving him a call!

Last and not least, the store houses a small alter dedicated to local-boy-makes-good Kurt Cobain, who grew up and lived in Aberdeen. There are a few artifacts for you to explore and you can pick up a bottle of what we call Kurt Dirt: authentic Wishkah River soil from where Kurt hung out and eventually had his ashes spread.
