Nostalgic boomers and retro-hungry design geeks flock to this unique store/gallery for their fix of reasonably priced mid-century vintage toys and posters. The small, whitewashed space displays its wares with reverence—down to the glass vitrines—and while a few pieces show their age, many are flawless, including whimsical Billy the Kid cork popguns and original-issue Mr. Potato heads (sans plastic tuber) sit immaculately in their original packaging. There’s also a great selection of 1950s-era space toys, like the card game Space-O and rocket-shaped water pistols. Movie buffs will drool over vintage posters from classic horror, noir, and animation titles, and covet the iconic action figures from films and television shows like The Munsters.
