Enter Novelty Haus, and enter a world of fun! Owner Noel Conrad felt there was a lack of stores with merchandise of pure fun and opened the Novelty Haus shop on March 5th in the back of Dangerously Delicious Pies at 1036 Light Street.
Noel had formed an art house in 2009, in collaboration with several other artists, making screen printed posters and t-shirts, but decided to have a shop of his own. “It has always been a dream of mine to operate a space where people, regardless of backgrounds, can come together to enjoy the pure aspects of life,” said Conrad.
On the shelves you’ll find an eclectic assortment, including toys, buttons, books, apparel, charms, jewelry, records, and turntables. The shop also serves as a satellite location of Atomic Books in Hampden. Don’t worry, though, you can still get some of your favorite delicious pie before or after browsing to enjoy there or take home.
Noel is all about the pursuit of fun and wants others to be able to experience it as well. “Novelty Haus strives to increase the awesomeness of everyday life through locally made and rare international items,” said Conrad.
Novelty Haus is open Tuesday-Sunday, 11am to 9pm and a grand opening is planned for next month. Stop in, grab an “I Love Fed Hill” button, and have some fun!
