You got to be kidding me! That's basically what my reaction was when I went to return a defective color hairspray at Aahs on November 3, 2008. I purchased the item on October 31, 2008; The store was packed and the lines were long. Since I only have a few more minutes before returning to work I hurried to grab an orange temporary hairspray and didn't get a chance to check the product until I got home at 6pm, I live in the Valley by the way. I called my kids to spray their hairs...What? NO NOZZLE! Oh well, I told my kids, we can go without this year....

Anyway, I don't care about the $. I just wish that Indian lady at the counter could have offerred to replaced it or give me a store credit or something...but no! She was toughed! "ALL SALES ARE FINALS, NO RETURNS" And so she says... I left the spray can on the counter with the receipt and left upset.

This is partly my fault for missing to read the signs if there was any, hard to see with all the people pushing and shoving just to get through...I should have checked what I purchased....For sure, I WILL NEVER BUY ANYTHING FROM THIS STORE...In fact, I started spreading the news to all my co-workers.

Cons: NO RETURNS OR CREDIT FOR DEFECTIVE PRODUCTS DURING THE HOLIDAYS

I visited Aah's a bunch of times randomly when I'd be strolling around in Westwood... it's definitely an interesting shop (lots of gag gifts, trinkets, etc), and its the ideal place to just window shop. They go all out for holidays, especially Halloween when they have a huge selection of costumes (though the packaged outfits are quite expensive). They have a range of random items (Family Guy/Simpsons paraphernalia to baby clothes with humorous sayings).

Pros: range of gifts, gag gifts, trinkets

Cons: a bit tacky

I get all my costume supplies for sorority events here. They have a great selection, but be prepared- they only have full costumes during Halloween. The store on Wilshire has a wider range of costumes. Good for gag gifts too!

Pros: Funny gifts, costumes

Cons: Full costumes only during Halloween

.

Has a great selection of junk and not-so-junky stuff. I have been to this one, and to the one on Wilshire - both get great reviews! (Esp. the Wilshire one for having a fairly good parking lot). Beware this place during Halloween, however, it is packed, rowdy, and has a no-return policy for costume buys. But, you can't beat their selection of random stuff.

Great place to get gag gifts, humorous cards and gift wrap. The quality of most items is fair to moderate, which isn't surprising since these are disposable novelty items. Items tend to be on the expensive side. Also, be wary of the return policy. I once bought a seasonal item and the store rules clearly said exchange only; when i tried to exchange the item for a store credit two days later, they refused, even though i had a receipt.

Aahs has always been one of my favorite card and novelty stores. There are tons of cards of every type. From funny and sappy to naughty and beyond. There is an especially large selection of humorous cards for all occasions. I usually end up purchasing a bunch of cards to use for later, in addition to those I came for. There is also a large selection of novelty items. This is a great place to shop for gag gifts for birthdays and office parties. The staff is very friendly and can usually direct you to the right card within their tremendous collection. I highly recommend Aahs for a fun browse and some terrific buys.

Aahs! is part of a small chain of gift and novelty stores. They have a large selection of cards for all occasions though they are targeted to be on the humorous side and not the mushy side. Then they have all sorts of toys, gag gifts, and slightly risque' accessories. To round things off they have a rather large selection of nostalgia gifts like old Coca Cola signs and Marylin Monroe posters. So if you're in Westwood, it's a fun place to browse while waiting for your movie to start.
