Regardless of the final cost of purchase, shipping is added; i.e. starts ~$10.99 and increases from there. Therefore, any item returned makes postal costs akin to insulting. I just returned an item (wholly unexpected), and when I learned of the costs, I asked to be...More

Best place to find unusual things or perfect for a gift. All price range. From affordable to expensive. But even if you don't buy anything it's a great shop to visit and discover so many things that I personally didn't know that existed .

My travel guide recommended it and said it was an amazing place to discover new and curious objects. Well... what a disappointment! I was looking for nice gadgets for my kids and I found just nothing. Avoid loosing your time in that shop.
