Party Supplies, Crafts, and Decor in a Convenient, Locally Owned Store

Captain Duck is the perfect combination of quick to shop, easy to understand, and fun to browse.
The Captain has journeyed far and wide, collecting unique and exciting treasures that you simply will not find in other stores of our kind.

The Captain offers his favorite, limited-supply gems through weekly “Backwall Blowouts” with prices almost too good to be true. You'll find new low-price items on the Backwall of our store each week. But, when Backwall items are gone... they're gone!
