Paraphenalia was a hippie type shop up near the uni when I was a kid in the 80s - wasn't aware it moved to the city centre though, so perhaps not the one you're thinking of.
Contact me via ask@tyrell.mobi if you have any questions or comments about the site.

If I remember correctly, which is not always the case, before the shop was called Paraphenalia, it was called Danby's. That would be in the 70's.
