Vintage hunting in Shimokitazawa

Shimokitazawa - I'm not even going to try pronounce this name. 
Anyway it's apparently the hippest area in Tokyo and you don't find it from regular tourists guide. Everybody's talking about Harajuku but it seems like Shimokitazawa is the place where cool young people actually hang out at weekends. 
Tiny streets are packed with vintage, antique, homeware and secondhand records stores. Reminded me of Brick Lane in London or Lower East Side in New York.
 There was such a nice relaxed atmosphere, perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
