More than a decade ago, Debi Lambright graduated from selling patches at punk shows to owning Dirt Cheap Distro—a snug Southside shop catering to the alternative set. While burlesque/rockabilly/horror fans might find larger emporiums elsewhere, Lambright clearly knows her customers and keeps them coming back for specialties like retro pinup dresses ($29-$95), Killer Klowns T-shirts ($16), locally made hair accessories ($6) and sequined pasties ($11).
