Awesome store

Weird, cool, and hard to find stuff. Spent probably an hour looking through all the stuff. Some stuff not suitable for small children.

Unique, fun novelty gifts here. Lots to look at. Upstairs and down. Wanted to purchase wall art/ bottle opener, but couldn't remove from the wall. Even my husband enjoyed browsing.

Unique store with lots of artsy flair. Reasonable prices, great variety of items. Fun place to look around. There is a large section of children's items but also lots of more adult items.

Stopped in here while walking downtown Asheville and I would come back. So many fun and funky finds here for anyone thats on your shopping list. Even if you aren't shopping for someone, its still a fun little shop to walk through.

We had a great time browsing around this store. As another reviewer noted, you may want to pass this up if you are easily offended. Lots of fun items, artsy stuff. We bought an umbrella because it started pouring down rain while we were there. They also had a nice selection of soaps.

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!

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. Artsy cards, jewlery, paitings, books, lanterns, etc. The things for sale reminded me of "cool, funky" stuff you would decorate a dorm room with.... More
