This weekend, an Ed Hardy outlet appeared with no warning at 433 Spring Street downtown. Throughout Saturday and Sunday, the store sold Christian Audigier's signature tiger-tattooed merch out of cardboard boxes for between $20 and $75. Then it disappeared again as mysteriously as it came, although our sources—and a comment on Blogdowntown—have it that the place will reopen as a full-fledged store sometime after this Thursday.
