The Ugly Christmas Sweater Stand

A sort of pop-up shop usually opens on the corner of Granville and Georgia each December selling a variety of cheap-ish sweaters right on the street. No word as to when it will appear this year, but keep your eyes peeled.

Dig up any old knit sweater from your closet, then hit up your closest Michael’s craft store and go to town on tinsle, glitter, fabric paint, ornaments and basically anything else you can stick onto a sweater.

Where: 6 locations in Metro Vancouver, see website for addresses
