Be prepared to go into eyeball stimulation overload! There is so much going on in here. Be sure to stroll slowly so you don't miss anything. Lots of fun, silly, sometimes rude, funky, original gifts, books, even practical items. A Must-See when in downtown Asheville!

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.

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....More

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...More
