Super friendly staff and multiple chill pets are hosting a party at this eclectic, zany home decor/random gift shop.
Wall-to-wall knickknacks, Bric-à-brac, Latin American arts & crafts, architectural salvage yard art, jewelry and even some STL souvenirs and postcards. Find a gift for anyone or a treat for your home. Several friendly dogs, a couple of cats and a great upbeat staff are all available as well.…

I never miss coming here while in STL. If you are looking for yard art especially, its a great resource.

This somewhat quirky shop was a fun stop with the grandchildren. From gazing balls, fun pots to giraffes we spent over an hour with these shop owners. The giraffe arrived 2 months later after an open truck ride down I-70. Not your usual site for the other drivers on the road.

Overall, it's a neat and interesting shop. The vast majority of items are of a particular style of colorful Mexican merchandise, with lots of odd and eclectic things sprinkled in between. Prices are are about what you'd expect in a place like this. What others have said about it being filthy and smelling to high heaven of pet poop and pet pee are absolutely true, and you should be diligent about where you step because there are dog piles everywhere. Having been there enough times I know this going in. But, my last visit was indeed my LAST visit. Admittedly, I have a severe pet peeve about rude shop owners. It's my belief that in the age of the internet and the horrible impact it's had on independent local businesses that local shop owners have a particular responsibility to be good to their customers. There is nothing in your shop that isn't two clicks away and free delivery. My tipping point came when my eye fell on a particular piece of pottery, and the thought flashed through my mind "I think my daughter would LOVE this for her new patio." I did what people do now, and started to take a picture to send to her to see if it fit with what she had in mind with the intention of getting it for her if she wanted it. The owner saw this, and launched into a long tirade about how pictures "weren't allowed" in HIS store. I listened patiently, smiled pleasantly, put about $180 dollars worth of merchandise that was in my hands on the counter and walked out. Before I started my car every piece that I had set down was ordered online and on its way. Free shipping. You're free to be pretentious and rude in YOUR store. But you should realize when you do that you're damaging the image of local businesses, and adding to the reasons people buy online. …

Tons of stuff to explore for garden ornaments and pots, iron works, jewelry, and tons of miscellaneous stuff. Beware of dog and cat poop on the floor. Several areas smell pretty nasty.
