I wish I could buy every book - not to mention the trinkets and toys and kitsch. Everytime I visit LA I make a pilgrimage to Wacko. It is over the top cool. The art gallery is the added bonus. I just love this place

Basically the most rad shopping experience I've ever had. If you like kitsch, lowbrow, pop culture, animal bones or the unusual, you'll enjoy spending time here.
