Organized racks help you shop at Fringe & Fray.

DYD DYD goes by various names, such as "Drop Yer Drawers" or "Drum Yer Drum," but one thing remains — an eclectic shop that refuses to lose its vintage charm. DYD has occupied the Garland District for more than 20 years, and you can find clothes older than that. Music accompanies you while you sift through old leather jackets or Johnny Cash records. You can find foreign art or a new stereo system. The best part? Everything is roughly $20 or less. 719 W. Garland Ave. Spokane, Wash.
