This is a fairly small store, so it's hard to move around if it is as crowded as it was for the 4th of July weekend. But there is a huge selection of gifts, odds & ends from the silly to the sweet in a wide variety of price ranges. My husband and I found a couple of perfect small... More

This shop would be a great place to visit for some fun gifts! They seemed to have a little bit of everything - clothing, books, magnets, toys, jewelry, etc. It seemed to have a lot of gag gifts which made it fun to browse 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. What was really refreshing was the fact I haven't seen most of this... More

This store had so many things I wanted to buy that I had to ship stuff home. The owners are great and the stuff they have is so nice. Vintage style things that you wouldn't know where to find.This is a great little store to find a gift and if you want they really can ship it out for you.... More
