day thirty four: august 25, 2009.
this is "deluxe junk" a.k.a. one of the best thrift/junk/curiosity/vintage shops i've ever been in. it is so fancy!! it is definitely like something out of "ghost world" - it's kinda dark and movie-set-esque inside, and totally done up all magical-like. there is an entire lighted, glass-enclosed display wall devoted to fez hats from the mid-twentieth century. in addition to the wall o' fez, there are impeccable vintage dresses and fur/faux fur coats, vintage greeting cards, household items, jewelry and - my FAVORITE - vintage cowboy boots. meowwww!
the best part? everything is SUPER cheap! even the boots (they start around $15 for the basic ones, around $20 for the sassy pairs). i am in love.
the store is in fremont a.k.a. the center of the universe. and there is a life-size french fry man sculpture out front, as well as an attached coney island carnival-themed hot dog stand. another reason to love this neighborhood! xo.
