My mother Olly in the late 70's would have a stall every year when the Winter Show came to town. She would sell jokes, gags and other novelty items for fundraising. Her stall was so popular customers would tell her she should open a shop in town, so started the Joke Shop which would become The House of Fun.
I don't like to skite but we have been labelled by Kiwi's and International travellers, as "THE BEST SHOP IN THE WORLD".
There is nothing better than the sound of laughing customers (often hysterically) so if you are ever in Whangarei please come and visit us, we are situated in the Strand Arcade off Cameron St.
