A kitsch lover's paradise, this quirky variety store sells a mix of wonderfully cheesy novelties, such as Last Supper lunchboxes and a robed 'Elvis, King of Kings' in a flashing dome. Vintage items include 1940s aprons, pulp fiction paperbacks and fruit crate stickers with unintentionally fruity brand names, along the lines of 'Blushing Melons'. Owner Brooks Morris also makes a range of retro homewares, including fabulously decorated lampshades (around $40), coasters ($14 for four) and wall clocks ($25).
