Oh yeah, that was it. The late 60s head shop in Bakersfield (yes, boys and girls, Bakersfield had a head shop - god help you if your dad caught you sneaking in) was called Arabesque and it was wall-to-wall black light posters, tie-dye t-shirts and sandalwood. Hookas lined the top shelf.

It's (somewhat) amusing that the prevalent association with those Beaded Curtains expressed here comes from erstwhile (and perhaps current) MJ Druggies.

Given that said curtains were popular long before that as evidenced in many movies from the '20s and '30s on. Especially during the period when Oriental themes and locales were popular.

Admittedly, there was a boom in said popularity among those coming of age during the '60s joining the "spaced-out" crowd.
