Best Novelty Shop - 2011
You've got a birthday party to get to in half an hour, and an overpowering need for a potato gun. We know the feeling. And we've got the source: Smeeks. This "sweet little shop" is best known for its candy (and you can get sugared up here, for sure) but its selection of old-fashioned (harmonicas) and new-fangled (squirrel underpants?!) novelties keep us coming back, every time we need a fun gift. Or — we'll admit — a little something for ourselves. Hey, everyone needs a set of Japanese erasers shaped like pastries. And the sweet folks at Smeeks will be happy to wrap up that harmonica super-cute, whether it's for you or a friend.
