AJ Housewares & Gifts
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Not recommended for claustrophobic types, this packed-to-the-gills housewares and gift shop has a mind-boggling (and slightly chaotic) array of goods. There’s a wall of beaded bracelets ($9.99 each); there are paper lanterns ($5.99) and towering stacks of pots and pans. Buried in the back, electronic lotus flowers ($29.99) light up in different hues and emanate bizarre chant-like music; you’ll also find giant, stuffed Pokemon creatures. But amid all the clutter, there is a goldmine for adorable kitchen goods. To the right of the entrance, an aisle stacked with dishes has rice bowls decked with smiling, baby-blue puppies or smug-looking pink cats ($3.99). There are also richly patterned tea sets ($29.99) and fish-shaped platters decked in floral prints ($8.99.)
