This store is far from boring! There's lots of unique and fun gifts and gadgets to peruse and purchase. It's owned by McSweeney's so they carry most of the books they publish as well.

The Boring Store is no longer at that location. There is now a store called The Secret Agent Store and is relocated nearby on Milwaukee Ave. https://secretagentsupply.com
