Last Minute Gift Guide: FleaWorld

Affordable last-minute gift options from FleaWorld

5. Conch shell from Bargain Main, Booth X-86 ($5-22) It was the biker culture collection of coins, leather, skulls and pins that first drew me in to shop around this one-off shop in a sea of dollar stores. But what I stayed for was the conch shells. The conch shell, which is typically seen more frequently in houses than on seashores, can be used as: an instrument, a bookend, a shot glass, a mantelpiece object, a personal therapist and, in Buddhism, it's also a symbol that you are in control of your life. Surprisingly powerful present, right?

6. Salt and pepper shakers from Chen's Dollar Store, Q row ($9.99) There is no contest, really. The best dollar-store option at FleaWorld is Chen's, which features a wider range of screwy home goods than the others, including a line of salt-and-pepper shaker holders for just about any person's dining room table. Some favorite holder themes included a mule who carries the shakers in baskets on his back ("At Your Service") and baskets tossed down in a chicken coop ("Farm Flavor"), but the one that really stood out had shakers that dropped into the eye sockets of a skull and was called "Deadly Devourings."
