Basically, it's like a giant drag queen's closet. That is, a giant closet belonging to a drag queen. Though I suppose it could be a closet that belongs to an obese drag queen as well. Either way, it's a great place to find some decent stuff. It is a little chaotic in terms of organization and such, but it's definitaly... More
