It smells of incense 9/4/2006

This is the type of small boutique at which young urban professionals ("yuppies") like to shop. The merchandise is inexpensive. It is not highbrow or haute couture, but it is decent. There's a lot of little trinkets in here, little pieces of jewelry, interesting clothes of many colors (some say "made in China" on the labels- I guess one would have to trust that these are truly Tibetan, as Tibet is now part of China). The shop feels like the classic Philadelphian townhome. The front of the store is like a parlor with tons of goods stuffed into every nook and cranny. Then you walk through a narrow hallway past a putrid bathroom to the back room, which has even more stuff to choose from. Honestly, compared to the rest of Manayunk, this store feels a bit dated. It is not very well lit and it is not very airy. In my opinion, the merchandise here is really geared to a small niche of people. If you don't care for Tibetan style items, you won't find anything here. The clothes are certainly unconventional, and, though the clerk was very polite (but not pushy), I don't think this store is for me. I don't like the smell of incense that pervades the displays. more
