The store that calls itself Wackos, the second happiest place on earth just catches my attention like no other. This can be seen as just another hipster store in LA but the content in this place makes it worth visiting. I’ll add this to one of the coolest unusual places to visit in Los Angeles.
The store has divided into 3 parts; the book section, weird stuff section, and there’s also an art gallery. If you’ve been to Urban Outfitter, you’d know that they have a section of the store that sell a bunch of random but cool stuffs and really interesting books. Well, Wackos is like that but the entire store that dedicated to it. If you’re looking for odd items, toys, or quirky reads, vintage posters, photography, cool postcards, this is the place for you! It’s really a great store to hang out. Come with a few friends and you will be to get some good laughs.
The art gallery is interesting. I assume that exhibition rotates all the time, but when i visited, there was a showcase of painting that will ruin your perspective on disney characters.
