When you’re looking for a unique gift item or obscure find, you can’t just go to Target or Walmart. Locals know that there’s a selection of specialty shops that will help you find something a little more special. This year, our readers and editors picked Big Fun as the number one destination for that type of shopping experience.

Big Fun expanded to Columbus by way of Cleveland back in 2013 and has become one of the most unique Short North stores, filled with new and vintage toys, games, collectables, novelties and gift items. If the contemporary mall store experience is clean lines and minimalist design, then Big Fun is the polar opposite with cramped aisles and high shelves stocked to the brim with cool things you didn’t even know existed.
