Lemon Frog

1202 N. Alvarado St.

If you swear you saw some of the Lemon Frog items in a movie somewhere, you’re probably right. Its collection is extensive, and the true vintage items all look as if they have a story (or two) to tell. But the best story is the one that’s yet to come—once it’s part of your wardrobe.
