This venue is closed. Jungle Planet used to be known for eclectic, earthy, global styles, but since husband-and-wife team Lester and Arline Joffe took over in 2000, the only remnant of its exotic past is the green ceiling paint. Now, it’s a reliable source for affordable women’s sportswear and handmade accessories. Though the Fang T-shirts are geared toward college kids, the store distinguishes itself from big-box competitors like Forever 21 via its pared-down selection. (Credit in part the tiny store’s spatial constraints.) Jeans, for example, are often nowhere to be found though co-owner Arline isn’t averse to selling them when she can find the right pair. Instead, she prefers to take things into her own hands, literally: She designs the semi-precious-stone bracelets and rings.
