Walking into this shop is like stepping into the bedroom of the coolest kid in an early-’90s middle-school class, complete with neon track jackets ($60 and up) and old-school hip-hop cassettes (two for $10). Owner Mike Spitz, who takes calls on an Alf telephone, proffers popular ’80s and ’90s memorabilia, like “Goosebumps” books (three for $5) and troll dolls (two for $10). Though the clothing caters mostly to men, with gear like Starter jackets ($80 and up), women are known to pick up oversize vintage tees ($20 and up) for themselves. Spitz also offers sneaker restoration ($60–$120) by appointment.
