Acronyms can be deceiving, and PHAG (Philadelphia Home Art Garden) is no exception. Not your average homosexual-themed novelty gift, home, and garden shop, PHAG offers a wide array of both stylish and quirky furniture, fashions, and garden accessories.
Walk beyond the colossal Madonna “Confessions on a Dance Floor Tour” print to the stairs in the back where you’ll unearth a hodgepodge of unique gay-themed treasures.
Don’t miss the dyke dolls (Bobbie comes equipped with her own vibrator), pin-the-tail-on-the-hunk games, or the just-plain-bizarre Judy Garland shrines—all of which position PHAG somewhere truly over the rainbow.
