top shops

Smitten Kitten

Isn't that a great name for a lingerie shop? I walked past it yesterday in Melbourne. The area around Melbourne Central has the cutest little alleys.

I also saw a funky boutique called Kinki Gerlinki. Their stock comes from all over Asia: Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, Thailand and China. It's always fun shopping when shoes have studded green jelly soles. And personally I can never get enough raspberry-coloured polka dots.

So, if you were opening a shop with a rhyming name, what would it be? I rather fancy a lolly shop called 'Dandy Candy.'

On a non-rhyming note, don't you think an excellent name for a Sci-Fi/Fantasy bookshop would be 'Asimov Cocktail'? Maybe a Sci-Fi/Fantasy-themed bar would be better. :)
