Archimage is a gift shop on Monroe Avenue that sells gifts, children's toys, cards, jewelry, incense, stones, chimes, housewares, fair trade products, and unconventional clothing items; their selections are always changing.

The store has a touch of the exotic, from elegant Japanese dishware and lamps, to dresses made from recycled Indian saris, to wooden Balinese masks. Esoteric items include Tibetan singing bowls, malas, and pendulums. They carry many gag gifts, such as chicken-chuckers, nerd glasses, and Nunzilla wind-up toys. Their jewelry selection is reasonable priced, with semi-precious stone jewelry in sterling silver and gold vermeil, nose studs and toe rings, and a colorful selection of fashion and costume jewelry.

Archimage was voted "Best Place to Shop for a Kid's Birthday" in City Newspaper's [WWW]Best Of Awards in 2007, though Archimage is much more than just kid's stuff!

On June 4, 2016 the owners opened a another store called The Hub by Archimage across the street at 701 Monroe Avenue selling housewares and dishes, lasting less than 2 years.
