If you are easily offended, I do not recommend this place. I saw a postcard with Jesus "flipping the bird", and cards with "bad words" on it. I laughed it off, and kept on looking around.

It was definitely a worthwhile stop for a visitor looking for some fun options for gifts that you won't just find anywhere. I'm glad we checked it out!

Yes, a little risque for my 11 year old but she only saw all the wonderful knick knacks. We have been to a lot of "fun" gift stores but this place had a really great assortment of inexpensive gifts perfect for the tourist bringing home travel gifts.

I went downtown to do some shopping and ran across the L.O.F.T. a little bit past downtown and I'm glad I did. It had great prices and such a variety of stuff. If you're going to do some shopping there I defiantly recommend stopping by this place!

Stop by this shop if you're in town. It's a unique store but beware, not everything in the store is for children. Nothing overly vulgar but certainly not for children!
