Very unique merchandise. Fun little place to visit. The staff was super friendly even though a fire had knocked out the internet and they could only take cash.

This is a must stop when visiting Salida. Such a talented couple of artists with quite an imagination. You can't come out of the store without a smile on your face.

The strange items are a blast. One of the coolest art shops in town. They were not open when we went by the first time, but were when we came back. Was worth it.

One of the coolest, funkiest art galleries I've been to in a long time. All the guests were oogling and awing. Venture inside, you won't be sorry. One of the coolest art galleries in Salida.

Although the art items were cute, the entire store was based on this one very expensive item. Also, they were not open at the stated time both days I was there. A no-no as a business owner.

It's as imposisble to not end up smiling and chuckling at all of the amazing little (and big!) monsters as it is to avoid walking out without one in tow. What a great attraction for young and old alike - will definitely be back for...More

Even the front windows are fun to look at. This is a "walk through carefully" type of shop but VERY unique store with a WOW factor. Artists have a wonderful imaginative mind to make these items. Small children would... More
