The nods to music at most thrift stores come in the form of previously owned band T-shirts and old records. But A to Zen Gifts & Thrift isn't most thrift stores. While the shop does carry a rotating assortment of recorded music and a possible surplus of Spinal Tap T-shirts, it treats its customers to something they usually only find at a music venue: live music. Each Friday night, the store transforms into an open-mic hotspot, welcoming local singer-songwriters to a stage flanked by floral couches and vintage Ringling Bros. posters. As the musicians set the soundtrack, shoppers can peruse the racks and shelves for such treasures as plaid overcoats, tie-dyed dresses, yin-yang end tables, and porcelain dolls. The shop also stock custom furniture and myriad books to remind folks of a simpler time when we didn't have book chips installed in our brains.
