Novelty shop or serious collector's haven, this Evanston shop is a hoot.. The Scene Shelves are crammed with novelties, collectibles and eclectic gifts. But while much of the merchandise goes for kids with a couple of bucks, a closer look reveals amusing items only big kids would appreciate.
The Goods Check out the funky lunch boxes decorated with today's Nickelodeon stars, wind-up tin robots, red voodoo dolls and pink flamingo lamps. Collectors of Curious George will relish a large display that features the inquisitive monkey on cookie jars, lamps, clocks and even popping out of a jack-in-the-box. Look for Elvis dolls, Sigmund Freud trinkets, nail polish that changes colors with your mood and an 8-ball fortune teller at this quirky, fun store.
