Last Ditch Weirdness
And if none of these items is weird or creative enough for you, try shopping at Archie McFee for a Dashboard Pug Buddha. Or get a Santaur ornament, the perfect gift for your poor Sagittarian friends whose December birthdays get overshadowed by bigger holidays every year.
Mark Pahlow created his novelty site because, in his words, "reality just wasn't living up to my expectations," noting that "as the world became more practical, I decided to fight that tendency with the impractical, the useless and the just plain strange."
The Archie McPhee catalogs are hilarious tomes of eccentric descriptions; a full collection is housed in the Smithsonian as an indicator of popular culture in the US.
Happy Creative Holidays!
