PART 3: Village Vanguard ~ Artsy Fartsy Homage! The Beatles~ Andy Warhol~ Yayoi Kusama!

Yet another Village Vanguard Post. Hehe. Part 3. What I also enjoy about window shopping and shopping-shopping in Village Vanguard (God forbid I don't shop for anything I don't really need) so I just resort to taking pictures instead.

What I also enjoyed here is the influx of Pop-Art Notalgia and the classics... I was such a crazy Beatles fan girl when I was in Fourth Grade (YES, when I was 10 years old and they were 30 years disbanded then) everyone in my class thinks I'm such a weirdo and a freak for liking The Beatles but hey... I just love them. If I was still as crazy fan girl like before, I would have died seeing all the Beatles items in Village Vanguard...

This may have been just paper bags... But for a Beatles freak, this is WOW!! 

I remember a schoolmate of mine way back in elementary gave me an ABBEY ROAD Keychain as omiyage when she came from a UK Trip... I treasured that for the longest time... (See... I even blurb about it here without any sense? Haha) So every time I see an ABBEY ROAD Album Photo like this, I still remember that time in my elementary days.

The Beatles ABBEY ROAD Paperbag!

When I was 18 years old, I got a chance to see The Abbey Road on a short trip to London. It was nostalgic... The Beatles brings out the old soul in me.

I love this Yellow Submarine! One of my favorite psychedelic music and visuals~ 
I like those tin can lunch boxes ~ Everything about it is nostalgic... I have no use for them but it's just fun. I wish I could have found this when I was in elementary, I'm sure I'll be one of those freaks being laughed at by snotty mean girls, but hey that's how I like my style. Hehe.

It is quite evident in my daily typical style and lifestyle that I'm so influenced with the Warhol Genius! I enjoyed some Pop-Art Mania along the racks of Village Vanguard seeing books and just random trinkets there.

First there was "The Souper Dress" and everything else followed haha! Now here is a "Souper Bag"! Haha!

This American Signboards are always POP! It's just fun seeing this! If I get a bigger atelier and showroom I think I will grab some of these POP-ART Signs!

So many Andy Warhol books!! Always nice seeing Andy Warhol books even in different language! Spread the Pop-Art Culture!

Who doesn't?! She's the ultimate DOT-Goddess of Art?! Haha! I love how the dots are taking over the world?! Bwahahaha!

We Love Yayoi Kusama Book
More Yayoi Kusama Books! More DOTS!

It was so fun to see a Yayoi Kusama scarf! I still believe that Yayoi Kusama should have a tights designed... I'd definitely get one of those! YAYOI KUSAMA SHOULD HAVE A TIGHTS DESIGN!!

Finally! After THREE PARTS! I've finally concluded my Village Vanguard (Exciting Bookstore) experience in Shinsaibashi! I must say, these three posts aren't even enough to show how fun and interesting this shop is! They always have this new strange thing on their racks and I guess that's the fun of this shop!
