The Taboo Girls are going on the road and hosting a bunch of pop up shops. Seriously. June is our favorite month for a bunch of reasons- it’s the beginning of summer, the month of pride, and it just feels really fucking good. This June we decided to take the squad on the road and host a bunch of pop up shops! We’ve got a ton of stuff planned in and out of the store and if you move slow you might just miss us! We’re loving the fact we’ll be slinging our favorite stuff in multiple neighborhoods this year in our pop up shops. Find out how you can catch us on the road! And don’t regret not hanging out with us at the shop or at one of our pop up shops this June.
