Home to the famous queen
Drag personality Babette Schwartz turned her shtick into shop with this tacky, fun gift boutique. If you're in need of something original, over-the-top, yet loveable, then this is your store.

    Whether birthday or divorce, this store has some of the most hilarious greeting cards, gay-friendly and otherwise. Many gag gifts are sure to please as well. You can spend an entertaining hour in here without even buying anything although that's tough since so many inexpensive items are tempting and will remind you of someone who would laugh if you gave it to them as a gift. The t-shirts are a bit overpriced, but for the most part, this is a clever little store with a lot to recommend it.
