Imagine the grooviest garage sale of your dreams. You know, the one in which an eclectic collector is parting with her accumulation of rare furniture, clothing and curios in one large fire sale. Now magnify it all by ten and you've got a fuzzy idea of Green Shag Market. This consignment shop, just southeast of Dogtown, could also take honors as RFT's Best Antique Store. But it's more than that. Green Shag Market is a walk-in time capsule from the 1960s and '70s. Looking for that vintage dress, the kind they wore at Haight-Ashbury back in the day? Or how about that evening gown — the one Elizabeth Taylor might have donned at her height of fame as Cleopatra? Furniture that looks like it was stolen from the set of Mad Men, albums from the era (Elvis, Gladys Knight, Simon and Garfunkel), classic jewelry, artwork — on or off velvet — it's all here. You're not dreaming. This garage sale is real.
