Shopping has become a popular hobby these days. People scour the Internet for odd finds, splurge cash on luxury items, and spend hours going from shop to shop. But one of the most exciting things to do while shopping is looking for hidden stores and going to pop-up kiosks. Nothing is better than paying half the price of the latest sneakers for something that reflects your tastes and personality better.
