UPDATE: As of 2:30 Saturday afternoon, there was still a decent amount of merchandise on the sidewalk outside KOJ. Come by to get good deals!
To witness a tableau of absolute mayhem, or if you wanna pick up some interesting vintage finds for pocket change, head to the King of Jeans today.

We passed by there moments ago, and the entire former retail hodgepodge was being put out on the sidewalk for sale. A woman who was corralling the chaos kept urging us to make an offer on anything we saw among the piles of cardboard boxes, trash bags, fallen ceiling tiles and other detritus. She said everything had to be out by the end of the day. All the proceeds from the sale are going to benefit the apparently nondenominational Church of Philadelphia at 17th and Snyder. Almost all the clothes and bikes are gone, but the little vintage market that took up a corner of the store must have left all their crap behind.
As we first told you over the summer, the King of Jeans building is being turned into apartments, offices and a first-floor retail space by developer Max Glass, who supplied us with a rendering way back in August. Glass told us today that the 3,000-square-foot retail space is still available, so click here for his contact info, and tell him Passyunk Post sent ya.
|Believe it or not, there’s actually stuff worth buying in there|
