the other store i wanted to mention is called art in the age of mechanical production. this place is really cool – it’s a combined store and gallery space, based on the idea of offering artwork in a broader context. it is also the home of alcoholic root tea – an herbal remedy first created by native americans. during prohibition, the alcohol was removed by a philadelphia pharmacist and re-introduced as the root beer we are familiar with – until art in the age brought it back. entering the store almost feels like going back to the pre-temperance time period – it’s full of antique trinkets and artistic displays.

Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction.
Philadelphia seems to foster subversive capitalists. Phila icon Ben Franklin has become a textbook cliche of lawful American ingenuity, but the real BF was a hustler who authored and plagiarized with equal zeal. The conservative politics of Urban Outfitters cofounder and CEO Richard Hayne occasionally rankle the customer base of his indie-retail empire. The happy and fruitful marriage of subculture to corporate culture makes DIY purists squirm, cynics smirk, and shareholders rich.
