This Shimokitazawa store – sibling to its Harajuku and Kichijoji namesakes – opened in 2005, stocking a mix of new clothing and American vintage duds starting at the ’40s and ending at the ’80s. Thanks to its US-based buyer, new stock comes in quickly, and there’s a good selection of both men and women’s clothing – as well as a few added extras such as retro-look tableware. In the true spirit of the second-hand store, prices are kept low, and if you stop by at the right time you could catch one of their irregular sales for the extra-cheap cherry on top of your bargain clothing sundae. Look out for the large neon flamingo sign.
