Trash and Vaudeville is a pair of stores, one on top of the other, located at 4 St. Mark's Place in Manhattan, New York, behind the St. Mark's Hotel in the historic Hamilton-Holly House building. The stores are associated with the clothing styles of punk rock and various other counter culture movements, and has been a leading source of fashion inspiration since its inception.[1]


The store has occupied the same location in St. Mark's Place, a punk rock mecca, since 1975. The downstairs portion formerly housed a pinball parlor. They are famous for supplying stars like the Ramones and Debbie Harry of Blondie with clothing during the golden age of punk rock in the 1970s and 80s. Many of today's top musicians and celebrities are still clothed by the store. In 2005, Trash and Vaudeville supplied alternative rock band Hoobastank with some of the clothing they wore on the Family Values Tour that summer. The store is owned by Ray Goodman, and managed by Jimmy Webb.[2]


Trash, the downstairs section of Trash and Vaudeville sells brightly colored and kitschy shoes, accessories and high-end clothing like L.A.M.B. and Miss-Sixty. Vaudeville, the upstairs section of the store, sells punk, rock, goth, shishank, japan 4, and glam-styled clothing for men and women and is the main location for the Tripp NYC label.
