Deep in the heart of Greenwich Village, New York City, U.S.A., there is an adorable and swinging little store called Zilch—
that, m’dears, is where all the action is! Hollywood has its Lenny’s and De Voss—and NYC has its (and Davy Jones’) very own Zilch. So, if you ever pass that way, do drop in, say “hey”—and find out what it’s like to spend a day in the teen stars’ fave East Coast store—Zilch!
First customers of the morning—WMCA radio’s (
former—he just split for Switzerland) deejay Gary Stevens, Davy Jones himself and Monkee-buddy Peter—hassel over who’s gonna get this groovy beige achkan! (Davy won—wouldn’t ya’ know!)
Hired help? Should say
not! That’s Andy Kim (his latest hit is Shoot ’Em Up Baby on Steed Records) on his way to the dressing room to try on a coupla dozen bell-bottoms. He ended up buying one pair in every color!
Happiest customer of all is Susie Cowsill (who has a
huge crush on a certain Mr. Jones), who found the perfect tote sack for “Subar”. Paul grabbed onto this Mexican vest, and Bob went absolutely Oriental in his choice of a paisley achkan and Indian seed beads.
Lending a helping hand, Jeff Neal tries to convince C.C. Courtney that he has just the shirt for him, but C.C. held out for this white “bush” jacket and a flowing black and white polka-dotted silk scarf.
And how do
you like this guru-oovy black achkan with psychedelic braid? It can be yours, ya know! If you can’t make it to Zilch in person, you can always shop there by mail. For a zingy Zilch catalog, just send 25¢ (and your name and address printed clearly) to Zilch, 217 Thompson St., New York, N.Y. Related topics
