junk shop, selling overstock electronics, components cannibalized from
junked machines, obsolete gear and excess stuff that would otherwise be
gathering dust in a warehouse. It’s a haven for techies
looking for cheap gear to soup up their computers or give their old
cartidges, hardware hackers who need switches, LEDs and solder, robot
olympics competitors looking for parts, art students who need magnets,
hipsters who like serving cocktails in test tubes and Erlenmeyer flasks, riceboxers and DJs looking for audio gear and bargain hunters looking for a cheap phone, power strip or television set.
I took The Redhead here and she loved the place.

take place. We’re talking serious renovations. How serious? Check out this photo album.
