Before Sanrio opened a Times Square outpost, there was this little shop for cool Japanese goods.. The Scene Past the silver tinsel curtain in the display window and dance club flyers by the front door, East Village denizens and NYU students peruse the racks of hip Japanese threads. Electronica on the stereo enhances the vibe.
The Goods Hello Kitty lovers will find Keroppi and others emblazoned on greeting cards, calculators, bowling bags and more, while label whores will be tickled by the Lovers House knockoff of Vuitton's embossed leather bags. Avant-garde mini-skirts, dresses, and men's shirts and jackets are decidedly cut for slim Jims and Janes.
