Trash & Vaudeville, that was the name of the place, I remember big pink shopping bags & a kind of early punk rock thing going on--I'd be shocked if its still there.
It's still there. Â St. Mark's Place between 2nd and 3rd Avenues. Dan
(me, registering shock, or at least surprise.) re. the shoes on S&H link-- the pic. of black suede boots look very similar to the boots I owned, although the heel was higher, and as shoreman points out, the toe was a bit pointier, though not by much. Also, there was a center seam running down the boots, a look I think I have seen recently, maybe Prada or Miu Miu boots (might have seem 'em on Yoox? possibly worth a look).
