Its more than 2,000 miles away from Haight-Ashbury, but on a good weekend, Finley Square is a gathering ground full of free spirits some filled with the alcoholic variety and an intoxicating variety of stores and vendors. Go your own way is the only direction in LITTLE FIVE POINTS, and that retro vibe shows up in a swirl of ways. L5Ps decades-long history reflects a consistent independent streak one thats now evident in the hottie wear of Cherry Bomb, the glam kitsch of Junkmans Daughter, and the vintage digs at Psycho Sisters, Stefans, Rag-O-Rama and Tease. Its a jumble of rebellious heart, be yourself attitude and sometimes freakish packaging that accepts both gawkers and neighborhood regulars. What could be more classic?
