Junkman's Daughter


Little 5 Points: [1]. This neighborhood caters to the alternative crowd and has become a hangout for hipsters, punks, goth high school students, and some individuals who defy description. It's also a great location for vintage-everything (clothing, record, book, etc.) shopping.
