Wacko Soap Plant

In the clear light of day, does your apartment look like a shrine to mediocrity? Need a collection of Mao Tse-tung wall art or sparkly unicorn floor mats? Spice it up with the freaky offerings at Wacko Soap Plant, known to locals simply as Wacko’s. A curiosity and book store (with a gallery, La Luz de Jesus, in the back), this sprawling retailer offers an exhaustive collection of everything colorful and cool, like Hindu dashboard deities, Betty Page shower curtains, jalapeno string lights, Tibetan statues, Japanese bobbleheads, and Mexican death figurines. It’s worth spending an afternoon just amusing yourself with the extensive book collection on kitschy art.

If you need a quirky, odd, or nerdy gift, Wacko's should definitely be on your list of places to shop. This place has everything from generally weird and humorous gifts to cult fandom products and everything in between. Not the place to shop for everyone, but if you have a family member or friend that is tough to impress with a present, you might find a gem for them at Wacko's.
