Have you noticed how 5th Ave between Robinson and University has become THE place to go for secondhand clothes? It started with 'Wear It Again, Sam' and then at least 3 other copycats moved in. The owner of WIAS is a vague acquaintance and I once asked her if she was miffed by the imitators. "Not really," she said. "If this area gets a reputation as the go-to place for recyc clothes, it's good for business all roud."
I think this window in the photo is for new clothing, but definitely in the Hillcrest neighborhood. And yes, there are quite a few used clothing stores in the area - it's a good business - they get stuff on the cheap or free and sell it to make a nice profit. I'm just worried about seeing more empty windows in the neighborhood.
