Best One-Stop Rockabilly Shop - 2000
Lawanna's - CLOSED
For those with a hankering for studded belts, bondage pants, buckle bracelets, and plaid minikilts, the New Orleansémigré owner of Lawanna's pretty much covers all the bases. Everything is conveniently sorted by style, down to colors and patterns, and the wall sports a selection of shoes favored by the postpunk set, from Doc Martens to Pumas. The shop kicks mod Manhattan rival 99X in the pants with its array of Betty Page Zippo lighters, sunglasses, and rock shirts, and effectively corners the cross-market of Southern rock rebels in one fell swoop.
