products

painting supplies, art and jewelry supplies, any and all arts and crafts supplies, beads, buttons, zippers, thread, costumes, wigs, face paint and far out fabrics...very cool "vintage" hawaiian print fabrics...

clientele

art-y and flower-y types...i think i smelled patchouli on someone...

service

this staff knows their stuff, but don't mess with them, they're keeping track of things like buttons and clasps in very tiny drawers...

interior

groovy kind of haight street feel, a bit musty and dingy, but colorful...could use a bit of remodeling, or at least a good vacuuming and dusting...

ambience

>> peace, love and tchatchka <<
