High design & fun. Mxyplyzyk (pronounced Mix-ee-pliz-ik) continues to be one of best places in town to browse for beautiful, modern, FUN and cutting edge housewares (particularly for spur-of-the-moment gifts). The store is a "quirky mix of well designed but affordable items gathered from around the world."
The perfect party store, and one that will get you in the mood to purchase a show off item for your home, Mxyplyzyk specializes in defying categorization and always having something brand new that you have never seen.
They stock lighting, clocks, bathroom hardware, luggage, dinnerware, toys, barware, phones, mats and much more at every price point you can imagine (though most prices are smaller than a breadbox).
If you haven't been to their store already, it's definitely worth a visit...or few. It's the perfect place to find a gift for that impossible-person-to-shop-for in your life (and everyone has one...).
