We always stop here when visiting Venice. Not your typical gift shop, lots of unique items for everyone to explore. We always find something to brink back home. The summer hours are limited and it was a disappointment to learn that they close on Sundays (as do most stores in town). We would visit daily if we could!

Thanks for the review! We're glad to hear we're a regular stop during your visits to Venice. During the summer (through Halloween, actually) we're closed on Sundays, but open by 10:30 until 5pm Monday through Saturday. This is the first year we have closed Sundays for summer, after having been open 7 days a week year-round for most of the... More

This is a wonderful little shop with vintage (reproductions) cards, posters, unusual/unique items, etc. If you're in Venice - this is "the" place to stop!! I spent a fun filled hour here!! The owner is great to talk to - extremely friendly and funny!!

Thanks for the glowing review! We LOVE picking out the cards we sell. We specialize in humor and retro themed cards, mostly birthday, all occasion and blank notecards. We also have a variety of postcards as well, many of which can be framed, and even wooden ones that can be mailed. With crazy magnets, books, puzzles, posters and other gifts,... More

Our goal is for each customer who comes in to have a good time, some chuckles, snickers and outright bursts of loud laughter! The nostalgia doesn't hurt for feel-good moment, either. We appreciate your business. More

Looking at all the goods in Nifty NicNaks brings lots of giggles and smiles, memories too of things from way back when in our lives. Great inexpensive gifts for those in our lives who enjoy memory "stuff" or just plain fun! Give it a try! You can't not enjoy the moments spent there.

We have old school memorabilia humor and today's edgier humor, too. We hope you'll stop in again soon or shop in our web store. More

Looking for that unusual gift or Nic-Nac? You can find it here. They have all kinds of Hollywood and political nostalgia; pictures, signs, cards, etc. I bought an old fashion "sock monkey" with a police hat at Christmas for a retired police officer friend. A friend found a replica of the old metal WWII sign of "Rosie the Riveter". Lots... More

Thank you for taking the time to post a review about us on TripAdvisor! Yes, we consider Elvis and Marilyn to be "staples" of our inventory, along with Betty Boop, rock bands and musicians, and super heroes! And what's more retro than a sock monkey?
