Best Shopping on Grand Avenue Phoenix 2013 - Jackalope Trading Post
When Go-Kat-Go giddy-upped and left its Melrose Curve digs, some big changes happened. First, the owners changed the name to Jackalope Trading Post. Second, they set up shop next to downtown's destination dive bar, the Bikini Lounge on Grand Avenue. Here, in their historic home, the good folks of Jackalope Trading Post have fine-tuned the theme of their eclectic hand-me-down goods. Kitschy throwbacks to the Southwest's yesteryears fill the small space and keep shoppers' wandering eyes busy with vintage mechanic patches, antique kitchenware, distressed road maps, and retro resort key tags. Individually, the items at the Jackalope Trading Post are chaos, but collectively, they call upon time and a place that hipsters, roadtrippers, Arizona locals, and Americana lovers can all appreciate.
