In 2016, a small group of tourists visited Simi Beauty Salon in West Palm Beach, Florida.
One of them was a 22-year-old woman who had been there since the late 1980s and said she loved the place.
“It’s like a mini-Museum in here,” she told the Palm Beach Post in 2016.
“They have a big display of old photographs of me and my sister.”
The Post reported that this was not the first time the salon had been visited by tourists.
In 2013, a visitor from China had paid $4,000 for a photo op with Simi’s owner.
The man, who is still unidentified, is still a celebrity and a prominent face in Palm Beach.
When Simi was recently remodeled, a wall was added to showcase a few old photos.
But it’s not just the photos that make Simi a museum.
The salon is filled with vintage beauty products.
There’s a photo booth with a vintage mirror and a vintage vanity, which is currently on display.
“This was probably the first salon in Palm Bay where I met people who really loved the salon,” said Simi owner Lisa D. Hagan, in a recent interview with ABC News.
“You have to do a lot of research to find the best products and then you just go to the salon.”
Hagan also said she was surprised to find out that there were even people who didn’t like the salon.
“People who don’t really like the idea of living in a mall,” she said.
“I mean, they are like, ‘What the hell is this?’
But I can tell you that this is the one place I have lived in this entire time.
I’m still here.”
