For as long as I can remember I've always wanted to own a store.  When I was around eight years old my dad owned a shop called the "Monique Trendsetter Center", which was eventually shortened to "Monique Boutique".  (Monique was childhood nickname that I sometimes still get called by.)

There were so many cool things for sale in Monique Boutique: from clothes and shoes to gift items, toys and knickknacks galore.  It was a magical place for me, packed to the rafters with unique and amazing things from all kinds of unique and amazing places.  I don't remember how long my dad owned that shop for, but it was enough to spark a lifelong dream for me.

A Dream Realized

Fast forward to 2019, and while my first business venture, Darthside LLC, was a successful digital services venture, it wasn't quite the fire I craved. So, in January of 2021, I took a leap and opened my online boutique!

I started small, with just a handful mugs and t-shirts. But fueled by my passion ("If I don't love it, I won't sell it"), the store kept growing, transforming into what you see today: a vast treasure trove waiting to be explored.

Here at The Knickknack Shack by Darthside LLC, you'll find hundreds of products – and more are always on the way! We may swap out items as things go out of stock, but there's a constant stream of fresh discoveries to fill your home (or gift someone special) with joy.


I pour my heart into curating a collection that's as unique as you are.

Think of it as a treasure hunt, where every corner holds the potential for something special – a gift that sparks joy, a conversation starter, or maybe just the perfect addition to your own quirky collection. So go ahead, delve into my ever-growing trove of delightful this-and-thats. I have a feeling you'll unearth something you absolutely love.
