Do you want some Pop Rocks or Zotz to go with your lava lamp and bacon wallet?

- Do you want some Pop Rocks or Zotz to go with your lava lamp and bacon wallet?

FOX 2's Jason Carr explains where you can find it all in one quirky place.

Tzotchkes, candies, trinkets, doo dads, toys and t-shirts and basically the distilled essence of childhood wonder.

Not to mention wishes for overconsumptions of said candies and trinkets all on one rocket ship that doesn't fly but will zoom you back to when you wanted all of it, but could only buy some of it.

This is The Rocket, a shop on Woodward in Ferndale that trades in the current and the nostalgic.
multigenerational appeal, it has.

Desiree is the millennial shop keep who may not remember Gen X or Boomer candy, but still sweets are sweets.

"Razzles, I love Razzles," said Desiree Dudash. "They're amazing."

"We don't want people to come in here and say well I can just get this somewhere else," she said.

You could spend an hour in the rocket and still not absorb it all but coming back - but that's part of the fun.
