If you're searching for unique treasures and vintage doo-dads to polish off your holiday shopping, Shine has you covered. Shine Gallery has done a carefully-collected popup in local emporium of wonders, Wacko, set up in the space usually reserved for the marquee artist of the month. Shine offers a broad collection of trinkets and and authentic, collector-quality memorabilia, like buttons, caps, pennants, and toys. Most of it's from the 30s to the 60s, lovingly harvested from forgotten factories, warehouses and defunct stores. Shine will be at Wacko through January 3. Special holiday hours: Wacko is open weeknights and Saturday until 10pm, Sunday until 8pm; then on Thursday, December 17, they're open until midnight, every day through Christmas eve. (323-663-0122)
