Overpriced junk – I stumbled into this place on my way to the park, and was pretty amused with their selection, but my jaw hit the floor when I saw the prices. (A 1988 poster from the calgary olympics in a seashell pink plastic frame... $125. 3 VHS set of john wayne movies... $18. )
If youre into kitsch and have a sense of irony as deep as your pockets; this is a nirvana. BUT, if you aren't insane, you'll immediately realize this store is a thrift store poorly passing itself off as an antique store. Try Second Best Thrift (near the N train) or even the Salvation Army off the R train. You may have to look harder, but you'll be able to make your dollar go infinitely further, and you'll be treated better.
