Need a key to the Bates Motel? A dashboard Jesus? How about some Evil Clown nesting dolls? This East Village kitsch palace is crammed with snarky gifts, clever cards, books, toys (for children and adults), soap, and candles. There is also a nice selection of handbags and jewelry, as well a unique collection of baby and toddler T-shirts. Retro-mod designs like the store’s tiki mug get a lot of shelf space here. A kind of groovy, funky gift shop with a social conscience, Exit 9's owners promote recycling even as they hawk their housewares, baby clothes, Moleskine notebooks, and other semi-recyclable ephemera. For hostess gifts with an edge, or a birthday present no one else will bring to the party, a detour to Exit 9 is more than worthwhile.


Occasional designer showcases introduce rising talent.
