2007-08-09 13:35:54   They are also the only place in this state where I've found balisongs (butterfly knives), though the prices certainly take advantage of this. Good place to look around in, though. —IdSaysgo

Store prices are the same as the website prices. This is not your cookie-cutter gift shop. Here you find unusual and unique items and gifts. —NormaScott
