Community Voices: Coronado’s Bubble Guy needs bubbles

Hey friends and neighbors-

- Advertisement -

As some of you may have noticed.. I haven’t been out bubbling as much the past month… Well there’s two reasons for that… first, I started selling Comet Copters as a part time thing.. You might have seen me at nighttime over by the Del, as that’s when the Copters are at their best. They are LED toys that launch into the air 75 feet +! Well… that’s been keeping me busy but the second reason is just as important..

It seems as though the cities bubble solution supply has dried up. Now I know that bubbles are a seasonal product in most stores, but San Diego has great bubble weather practically all year round. So you can see my dilemma…. And the problem is only compounded by the fact that I was pretty lucky to have had a lot of interest in the bubble sticks I made and sold this summer, so I’m pretty certain that everybody in town bought up all the bubbles in the city.

So, I’m reaching out to you, the community, my online friends and anybody else that might be able to help me out… If you can come up with an economical solution to my “solution” problem- I’d be so thankful…. Any and all ideas are welcomed. Got lots of smiles to spread and no bubbles to do it with!

That’s about it… Thanks for reading this and stop by and say hi if you are over by the Del in the evening time. Have a great day!
