This is the most intriguing concept we've heard of, for a while: the British comedian is doing a popup shop at The Beverly Center on Thursday. BUY LOVE HERE is more or less a swapmeet, encouraging shoppers to take a more thoughtful approach to their consumption, and bring good goods in to exchange for something with a similar function.
