I can remember as a child in the early 1970's the owner of this store, a Korean man, would walk through my Mattapan neighborhood (Woolson St.). I would stand on our 2nd floor porch and watch him as he walked along with a shoulderbag full of wigs calling out "Wigs for sale, wigs for sale!". All the while holding one in one hand while he brushed and styled it with a hairbrush held in the other. I believe they were real human hair. As I grew, I would see him all over the city walking an selling his wares. He seemed to take great pride in the product he offered.
