The eclectic mix of clothing and home accessories is perfectly paired with a soundtrack that invites you to linger and spend some time examining the items on display.

Since first discovering this little shop, I’ve been back at least three times.  It’s the first place I think of when I need a gift for someone special.

Gifts for the young, and young at heart are easy to come by here.

I especially love that they carry one of my personal favorite brands, Jewel Rocks.  This is a brand I came to love in Jakarta, and was able to visit their flagship store in Bali–which is a magical little place in itself.

If you happen to love vintage typewriters, the folks at Snackfood will help procure one for you and will do their best to make it functional again. You can even have one customized.  Personalized service like that is hard to beat.

Whimsical home accents are something of a specialty here.  These ceramic pieces are cute and functional.

Snackfood also carries hard to find brands like Tokyo Milk.  I get compliments every time I wear Tainted Love.

These little dishes would be perfect ring holders by the sink.  Items with such personality help turn a living space into a home.

If the assortment of quirky goodness isn’t enough to convince you to drop by, then the fact that Snackfood has two feline permanent residents, should do the trick.   Tara and Black Jack are great shopping companions (but a little camera shy).
