I used to drive to this place from the West Side when I needed an interesting, fun, or white elephant sort of gift. Their selection of art/pop culture/coffee table books is swell. I dare you not to leave the store with something weird, hilarious and, well, wacko!
Hands down my favorite shop in Los Angeles. It's a bookstore, gift shop, art gallery, soap maker (?) and random kitsch purveyor.
Crazy fun place. Gags and gifts, art and collectibles. They have art shows also and good pieces can be found here.
I can spend hours looking at their books and toys. Found some amazing art/design coffee table books.
