House of Monsters

24 Jan

I had a lovely Sunday: brunch in the Pike/Pine area followed by coffee and a pink-frosted cupcake (sitting in Pepto Bismol chairs, listening to the Pixies and Radiohead) and stumbling through the rain into random shops. One shop on Pike, Snowmonkey’s House of Monsters, tucked away above an ice cream and sandwich spot, is full of odd little toys, books, and art. Currently in the shop is the art of Xavier Lopez Jr, whose illustrations of toothy-grinned, bulgy-eyed children made my afternoon. Now to round out the day with some Kiss of the Spider Woman.
