BEST SPOTS: Halloween Pop-Up Shops

BEST SPOTS: Halloween Pop-Up Shops

ATLANTA – Halloween pop-up shops, the first sign of excessive candy consumption, tons of food and some of our favorite clichés.

Pop-up shops, with their intense decorations and marquees, aren’t a nuisance as much as they’re a wonder; they provide us with an outlet, yearly and almost on cue, to outfit ourselves fabulously for parties and the likes.
