I've made several visits to tJD since my arrival to this city 9 months ago, and every experience has been positive overall. I don't know what the place was like "before," so any notion of a decline is lost on me...Yes, there is plenty of mass-produced junk and typical Hot Topic-esqe clothing (like Goth,bondage,and fetish styles..but a lot of great Bohemian, Vintage, and hipster-ish clothes, too. .....A large selection overall with plenty of unique items, toys, whosits and whatsits galore! .....New clothing and shoes are pretty high-priced, but worth it in terms of quality. Check clearance racks for good deals! ....All the employees I've met are helpful and friendly, but NOT pushy or invasive--Ask and You shall receive. tJD has something for almost ANYbody, so do Yourself a favour and visit this store. It's worth it. ....Junkman's Daughter is a staple in the L5P community!

It's in Little 5 Points. Most of the items are new, kitschy imports but there are some vintage and other used clothing items as well. They have a selection of sexy "cheap" clothes you might see in an adults only store, a head shop (I mean a "tobacco" accessories shop) in the back, costumes and Halloween makeup, t-shirts, incense, gifts, humorous political items and much more. Prices are rather high for the relatively low quality of most of the merchandise - there are some items that are better quality. It's worth a trip just to experience this unusual place.
This is one my favorite places to roam around for hours. Great shop for teens and college age students. Where else can I find a great vintage houndstooth mini dress and an Eistein action figure? My little sister finds it a little scary because of the costume display with wigs and masks towards the back right, but these are easily avoided if an immediate left is taken when the store is entered. Plus this where the cutesy, though sometimes cheeky, toys are hidden away. Though sometimes hard to manuever in, I love the Junkman's Daughter and will be returning for a very long time.
This Little Five Points store is a hip destination for my daughter and her friends who can spend hours shopping for kitchy gifts and interesting clothing. It is not for the faint-hearted, conservative, or young. My younger daughter is scared by the Halloween costumes and S&M type clothing, but I find it amusing and my teenager has found some cute (and surprisingly tasteful) clothes there.
So they are not the best organized nor do they have the best service... However, the staff is very friendly and their products are affordable. While the disorganization made me scream, if you have some time and creativity, you could probably find some really cool stuff for any sort of costume that you wouldn't find anywhere else.

It is a junk store for whiny suburban kids who need to build their identity around really bad music, high heeled boots and spiky blue hair. But, they do have the best selection of rolling papers in town. Staff is terrible. I despise this place.

I love stopping into this place. There is always some weird and wonderful item that I can't resist either for myself or as a gift for the most impossible-to-buy-for person.

I like going here except the smell of insence is aweful! LOL Lots of pretentious wierdos work/hang out here too. If you need anything subculture, go here and find it.

The Junkman's Daughter epitomizes the electic vibe of Little Five Points. Part clothing store, part novelty gifts, you are sure to find something you can't live without. Go shopping for unusual gifts, hard-to-find knick-knacks with character, or a unique home decoration. Junkman's Daughter adds a grass roots feel with pet adoptions, supporting local charities, and promoting local bands and events.
