Exit 9

Shopping, Boutiques East Village
Exit 9

This oddball shop is like Spencer’s for grown-ups—except there are no naked fat-lady greeting cards. Gags and gaffs abound, whether they’re virtually useless (Believe in God breath spray, denture-shaped ice-cube trays) or surprisingly useful (sturdy wallets, pencils shaped like drumsticks). This is indisputably the neighborhood’s go-to spot for wacky games, goofy cards, silly stocking-stuffers and everything in between.
