Looking for something to do in Venice - love shopping in charming boutiques. Well, needless to say, it does appear that a liquidation is in progress and the shelves were getting very bare. No new stock could be seen. Wasn't in there long and left disappointed.

I absolutely loved this store when I visited it in 2014. Knew that it was going to be sold but was hoping that the new owners would keep the originality of this gem. Much to my disappointment, when I stopped by last week, they were having a 50% clearance on all the stock from Nifty Nic Nacs. There was a... More

Books, bumper stickers,glasses, odd extras too. Worth the trip. A Rainbow of gifts! Smile and ignore the reactionary looks, this store is a delight right in the middle of downtown. Have shopped there many time for a variety of friends.

Need a gift for a friend from where you where you live? Be aware that you might walk out with more than one item and a big smile on your face since this store has the most surprising old school but modern tshatshkes you could not even have thought of... I love this store and they are open late -... More

Fun and unusual gifts and decorative accessories stepping back in time of the Baby Boomer era. Nostalgic candies, personal items and gifts.

This was a fun shop to look around. Lots of unique items, posters, etc. I like finding one-of-a-kind shops like this when I'm on vacation. It was fun to spend a few hours walking this street and looking around the shops.

I found this gem of a store while shopping on Venice Avenue. What a welcome relief to find this treasure with it's unique and fun items! So nice to see unusual items instead of the typical gift shop stock. From a large selection of candy from your childhood to hilarious magnets- this store is sure to have something you'll love!...

If you are reading this right now, come see for yourself! Read our other reviews, too if you get a chance. We... More
