This wacky little Lakeview shop is packed with quirky sundries that don’t do much—except make you laugh. It’s likely one of the city’s few retail establishments that sees a spike in sales around April 1. Scattered amid the cramped aisles are plenty of pranks—some clever, some dopey—and miscellaneous toys and tchotchkes that simply make people happy, like bobbleheads and PEZ dispensers.
