The vibe in this store takes you right to Venice Beach with a bohemian artsy feel and your host wearing a top hat and 987167482716 bracelets, waving out the window at you. Definitely worth perusing the local art, cigar box guitars, lamps and creepy dolls....More

Very funky with three floors. Costly, local artists made wired, funky stuff! Seems like a good cause, not sure how much it helps local, poor artists! Very cold rooms. Looks very depressing....May be a good antique shop?

Unique shop run by one quirky dude who has a variety of antiques, old chandeliers and sconces, art work, vinyl records, etc., etc. Fun to just look around.

Very nice owner who explained the shop and told of the local artists who sell their work in his store. It's not exactly my cup of tea, but it's definitely worth checking out.

Mostly stuff you would find at a flea market or antique store. Owner was very nice and explained what was on the different floors. Didn't see anything that impressed us. The dead dolls and some of the pictures were a bit weird.
