“One of a kind gifts!”

House of Cards and Curiosities is James Waits' charmingly personal endeavor. Opened in 1994, James decided to sell "things he liked," having developed impeccable taste from 30 years in the buying business. The biggest draw is in its gift and card selection. In addition to anatomy-based gift cards and vintage lunchboxes and tin banks, you can sense a Latin American theme, mainly drawing on the products and art of Mexico. Frida Kahlo wallpaper and plushies of famous philosophers litter the store, while skeletons and other macabre figurines hang from the ceiling. But don't worry, it's not there to scare you, it's merely there for El Dia de los Muertos (the Day of the Dead), a Mexican holiday that honors deceased loved ones and ancestors. Other themes include animals (in various forms), vintage/old school dolls, lunchboxes, game kits and figurines from both the past and the present. It's a place you can spend hours in and still find new things the next time you're there, perfect for gifts, gags, or yourself.
