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 magic!

If you are in Salida, you must check out this art gallery. The art is amazing and fun. We had a chance to talk to one of the artist and it was fascinating. If we are ever in Salida again, we will most definitely return to this gallery.

First came here more than a decade ago when my sons were very young (now 18 and 21) - Blew our minds then and did not fail to wow us again when we visited in July of 2018. Be sure to interact with the owner / artist couple that run the place... Be warned they are NOT always open, so call in advance - Really unique shop, full of whimsy and wonder! The male artist (name escapes me) has crazy good (make believe?) stories about each bizarre piece of art in the place... Hearing these tales adds to the pure joy that you'll feel, especially if you appreciate the odd, fantastikal (spelled that way intentionally) creatures that inhabit this gallery / store.

This lovely little gem is spilling over with color, texture and fun. The monster creations are delightfully strange and really pull you in. The owner was friendly and encouraged us not to be afraid to touch the stunning creations.

You'll never see anything like the creations from this shop anywhere else in the world. Monsters and steam-punk art.
