Wacky Merchandise and
Soap Plant and WACKO0
Why locals love it
Wacko has the largest selection of eclectic knickknacks and oddities in Los Angeles. Whether you're looking for souvenirs, or just wanting to browse through the collection of books, stuffed animals, records, jewelry, candles, or gag gifts, there is always something to see.
Why you should visit it
The store has a great energy to it--they play great music, and the staff is fun, friendly, and can usually be found singing along. There is also a small gallery contained in the back of the store that houses strange and thought-provoking exhibits.
The store displays many risqué items unapologetically, which makes for entertaining browsing but means its not a great place for kids.
