The Brands Boutique Launches POP UP SHOP at Anime Expo

Anime & Manga Fans! From July 4-7 at the Los Angeles Convention Center during the Anime Expo, The Brands Boutique will launch its Pop Up Shop which will showcase the small press comic book scene and kawaii culture to Anime Expo attendees. The booth will be selling self published comic book titles as well as Japanese inspired accessory, and graphic tee shirt brands made by lovers of geek culture.  The boutique did a pop up shop last year at Comikaze Expo which was a hit, so fans can expect a wonderful experience at the Anime Expo.  To learn more about the Pop Up Shop, visit the Brands Boutique’s site and read the official press release below:
