You wanted to relive your wild days, frolicking with a 19-year-old race car driver, fondling his toys.
Well, here comes speed racer Richard Philippe, the young entrepreneur behind Funkemotions, a new tchotchke-filled shop.
Make a pit stop at the hipster sanctuary filled with irony-laden kitsch (Keel’s multiple-choice diary, a molar-shaped toothpick holder, metallic blue disco piggy banks) that make cheeky gifts.
Soup up your home with a minimalist wall calendar designed by Pieter Woudt for Kikkerland, Taschen’s The Big Penis Book, or novelty kitchen goods like a bowl lined with a photo of tortilla chips. For Japanophiles: geisha-like momiji dolls with tiny hiding places.
The Wynwood store also has a fully functioning e-commerce site.
If you don’t want to rev your engine.
Funkemotions, 2312 North Miami Avenue, Wynwood (305-571-8495 or funkemotions.com).
