Best Tchotchke Store New York 2002 - REMINISCENCE
Establishments like Mod World and Love Saves the Day provide some fashionable competition, but the best-quality junk that you'll find outside of a Staten Island landfill is at REMINISCENCE, a quarter-century-old institution. You call it "cheesy, tacky," they call it "fun, unusual." Those in search of leis, rubber duckies, potato guns, fuzzy dice, Pez dispensers, kazoos, Magic 8-Balls, inflatable trees and furniture, mirror balls, Hawaiian shirts, feather boas, backward-running clocks, Mardi Gras masks, bubbles, superhero lunchboxes, bead curtain art, voodoo dolls, and heart sunglasses need look no further. You know someone in your life who needs these things, if not you yourself.
