WACKO - Your Kitsch Convenience Store
Soap Plant / Wacko / La Luz de Jesus Gallery is a bit of a mouthful so do as the locals do and just call this place, “Wacko.” The store offers a veritable cornucopia of obscure toys, kooky house wares, eclectic books, and other random doodads that you suddenly must have but don’t really need. I covet the solar-powered Queen Elizabeth, that executes the perfect royal wave when placed on a sunny windowsill, and also find it hard to resist her companion piece, a solar, head-bobbing Corgi. La Luz de Jesus Gallery features Lowbrow art, which while often masterful and humorous, is not my cup of yerba mate. Although I've never been, word on the street is that La Luz’ “First Friday” gallery openings are legendary.
