Crazy fun shopping

A wonderful maze of trinkets to explore, from arts and craft supplies to toys and orniments, just lots of fun stuff, and good value too, and friendly staff.

Icky Finks is tucked away behind some buildings just off Albany's main street, but fortunately it's not too hard to find: when going down York St, just take the first street left, and the parking lot is on your left hand side a short way down the road. As an Albany local, I've been here numerous times. The staff are... More

Great shop for cheap pet supplies, especially fish/aquarium plants. Good for fancy dress. Daughter likes their craft supplies.

I stopped in today to check it out and also I needed something small. It was worth checking out for me and I got what I wanted, however it is really just a $2 type discount store. Great variety, pleasant staff. Parking was a challenge so I parked out on the street around the corner. Overall it was ok.

Lots of interesting bits and pieces here and a great range hand made items such as clothing and scarves etc. An eclectic array and the only thing lacking was more of the local Arts and Crafts of Albany.

This is the shop that you go in with no real intention to buy anything, and find things that you don't really need, but you buy!

Icky Finks is a little treasure tucked away behind the shops at the top end of York street. They open every day of the week & they sell all sorts of knick knacks from kitchen ware to artist supplies. They are cheap & were among the first of this type of store in Albany,(they originally started off as the 'Two... More

My Wife and I find it Hard to fide adult toys and Ickey Finks has the lot plus the owners are always ready to demonstrate how they work. In fact I think they were the inventors of the White Ute Bed top, well done and keep the good work up! Best Wishes Paul and Leo.

This shop has it all in a fun wacky environment. Goods are literally hanging from the rafters. It has a great art supplies section which is excellent value for money and the staff are very friendly and extremely helpful unlike my other shopping experiences in Albany.
