Best Place To Buy Doc Martens, Rubber Snakes, And A Lava Lamp

Atomic City

Or rubber snakes, Kit Kat Klocks and Iggy Pop t-shirts. Or skull earrings, Betty Page cards and a Wizard of Oz Doll. Or a Super Soaker, glow-in-the-dark stars and rock & roll postcards. Or Nightmare on Elm Street Freddy glove, Japanese robots and Halloween masks. Owner Jim Hughes, aka The Prince, has created this glorious wonderland, as delightful for children as it is for adults. The Prince also bears one of the most remarkable tattoos in the Western World - a "suit" of Japanese movie monsters.
