Confining a store's inventory to only one category is a recipe for disaster—a lesson learned too late by the founders of Fork City and Tax Day Party Store. Get a little bit of everything with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of eclectic merchandise and novelty gifts at Curious Heart Emporium.
Purses, teapots, yard art, and action figures all add to the eclectic array of novelty knickknacks and gifts filling every corner of Curious Heart Emporium. Selections hail from a range of locales, as owner Kathy Corley combs sources throughout the nation and beyond to line shelves with a wide variety of exotic items. Bedeck bodies in scarves ($10–$72) or faux-rugged tattoo sleeves ($2.50) for fun, or formalize wounds for black-tie affairs with novelty mustache band-aids ($6.25–$7.50). Wine supplies such as sock monkey bottle covers ($12.50) and colorful wine glasses ($22–$25) make better housewarming gifts for vintage votaries than pricey cabernet lawn sprinklers, and the selection of pottery, wind chimes, and yard art ($24–$110) elegantly adorns outdoor spaces. Perfect for home festivities, the boutique also carries a wide selection of party supplies, greeting cards, and seasonal décor.
