With its cornucopia of retro collectibles spilling out onto the sidewalk, it's almost impossible to pass by B4 and not be tempted to stop in for a browse. The shop is a venerable shrine to playthings from the past, especially the toys of the 1970's and '80s. Think retro comic books, board games, lunch boxes and action figurines. Recent finds included a pressed steel and cast iron truck collection dating from the 1920's. If toys aren't your thing, then you can root through everything else, from vinyl records, musical instruments and vintage cameras to mid-century dishes and random pieces of antique furniture. Whatever it is, if it existed, you're likely to find it here at some point among the ramshackle collection of kitsch.
