Catering to folks on their way to and from the nightclubs on Beale Street, the crowded, eclectic little shop, Strange Cargo, carries gifts and souvenirs with an adult slant. This is a good place to buy humorous cards to send to friends at home. You can also find gag gift items here, as well as T-shirts with messages that might make some people blush. If you bring the kids, you might have some explaining to do.
Remaining much the same as it was when it opened in 1876, A. Schwab's , is the kind where farmers would have gone every six months to stock up on supplies. The sacks of flour and seed have been replaced with Elvis souvenirs and voodoo accessories, but the wooden floors still squeak under your feet, while the dusty tables hold size-72 overalls and an eclectic assortment of merchandise. Not always open in the evening when Beale Street is crowded, this store alone is worth a daytime visit.
This funky shop on Beale Street has all the CDs and cassettes by the great blues and jazz artists who made the Memphis music scene great, such as B.B King and Rufus Thomas.
