products

if vintage rocker tees, levi's, studded leather michael jackson jackets, and gwen stefani 40s house dresses are your religion then make your pilgrimage to this mecca...great accessories, shoes, all vintage... some new stuff for sale too...packed to the gills for the fashion addict...motif tee shirts galore, levi's are picked over, leather and corduroy jackets were well stocked...good assortment of aviator sunglasses and loved the dukes of hazard wristwatch with theme music...

clientele

haight street fashion addicts: young, with attitude, lots of hair products and showered last wednesday...stylists and fashionistas hiding under their chloe sunglasses...

service

non-existent except around the dressing rooms and cash register...intimidating only because they look so good head-to-toe...all are thematically dressed: grungy cowboy, sleazy rocker, princess, 70s queen, etc...one gets the feeling they get all the good s

interior

cavernous, like an airplane hangar...music so loud you can't blink, or talk...which probably explains why staff ignores you...

ambience

take a protein shake and hook up an IV before heading into the waste - will suck the retail energy right out of you...nevertheless it is an absolute vintage trolls' heaven..
