Like a smaller, more convincing version of the enchanted bookshop in "The Neverending Story," A REPEAT PERFORMANCE stocks a range of typewriters that will keep the children entertained for hours. Lovingly carted in from around the world by shop owner Beverly, stock has over the years included an 1890s machine endearingly named Oliver and a Hebrew model that comes in swimming-pool blue. Perfect for that stubborn aunt or highly strung intelligent nephew. Famous shoppers spotted inside include Matt Dillon and Julia Roberts. the store also carries a choice selection of vintage guitars and accordians, old Super 8 cameras, and various other flea-market curiosities.
