Least Wanted by Mark Michaelson
December’s Headshoppe item has arrived. It’s a series of vintage mugshots from the collection of Least Wanted. Handsome burglars, creepy loiterers, and one owner of obscene materials, as well as a few other intriguing pieces of ephemera. Each piece is original and one of a kind, just like a snowflake. From New York City to Alameda, California, these are pieces you’ll want to snap up quickly.
