Black Locust Society Opens Pop Up Shop on Friday, March 1, in Fort Lauderdale (PHOTOS)


We knew that it wouldn't be long until the Black Locust Society surfaced in 2013 with something new up its sleeve. Taking a break from throwing its epic Swarm party, the creative collective is launching something slightly more permanent -- a month long pop up shop. And what better spot to open than next to everyone's craft beer brothel, Laser Wolf.

In addition to its own line of clothing, some of the vendors include Jinx Remover, the Mongrels Brand, Oleander and Mint, and Cats are the Illest. The pop up shop opens its doors on Friday, March 1. The shop will be

open Thursday to Saturday until March 23. Each week the shop will be

home to different events, so keep checking back for more details.

We snuck into the pop up shop early and snapped a few preview photos. Take a peek at what's hiding behind the locust stamped doors below.
