Tempe's New Loft a GoGo Shop Plays to the Hip

There's a big divide between the gorgeous, contemporary lofts that TV shows depict the college crowd living in and the dingy, broken down, teetering-on-condemnation flophouses that most real world starving students are relegated to.

One place I lived in during my undergrad days had fist-sized holes in one wall and a floor so tilted a marble (or, more likely, a roach) would naturally roll to the north side.

You can't do much to upgrade a pad like that when your budget barely covers ramen noodles, but if you have a little extra cash from selling last semester's books -- or a tax refund on the way -- you can hip-ify your place with locally flavored goodies at the new Loft a GoGo store that recently opened next to Divaz on Mill Avenue.

We took a first peek at the goods inside, which range from a $20 vintage-looking photo frame to a sweet $600 nested dining table set.
