I love how Afflecks describes itself:
An alternative department store selling club and fetish fashion, new-designer clothing, surfwear, accessories, henna tattoos, and piercings.
Afflecks: an emporium of eclecticism and a totem of indie commerce in Manchester’s Northern Quarter. I can’t keep away from the place. If you want a Totoro bag, a classic Polaroid camera or a top hat, it’s the place to go. There’s also masses of art and design on the building – including this mosaic.
