Profile

This venue is closed.

This small, cluttered shop is stacked from floor to ceiling with reasonably priced collectibles and secondhand knickknacks. Shelves of porcelain cats, salt-and-pepper shakers, and cookie jars aren’t particularly exciting, but the constantly changing selection of lamps, collectible pottery, and costume jewelry is worth regular visits. The $5 ring box is always a fun spot to rummage for a one-of-a-kind bauble, and funky glass lamps, old clocks, and weird objets d’art will inexpensively spice up end tables and nightstands. Among the more unusual items are the flower vases shaped like fashionable ladies' heads (complete with pearl earrings and necklace) dating to the forties, taxidermic deer heads, plaque-mounted fish, and walking sticks topped with intricately carved dogs. There isn’t much in the way of furniture, save the display pieces, which are up for sale, assuming you can imagine them without the dense coverings of porcelain cats and dish sets.
