MOA Galleria - Eastwood Mall Fashion Shop

Birmingham, Alabama - 1960's

Swinging '60s ladies shopping and chit-chatting inside a fashionable store in a vintage-era Eastwood Mall. Don't know if this was a boutique, salon, or just the women's department of some larger store, but whatever it is, it looks pretty groovy to me.

In the '70s I remember getting dragged into lots of these kinds of stores by my mom as a kid. I didn't mind too much though, because even at that young age (we'll say around 10) I'd always use the opportunity to "scope out the chicks"! Usually meaning any cute 9 or 10 year-old girls who got dragged in by their mothers, too. And sure, sometimes I even scoped out their foxy, hot pantsted, go-go booted moms, too, I'll admit it. I had that kind of game.

Checks, stripes, flowers - talk about your clashing patterns. Yet somehow the whole thing works.

The hair on both employees and patrons is quite remarkable, too.

Check out the ashtray on a pedestal next to the chair! Man, today, somebody would flip out! I remmeber those days and always played with these ashtrays and always was scolded because they were "dirty."
