Pop culture is the name of the game for a new shop on Main Street in Ellicott City.
The Culture Lab opened in mid-September and features apparel, Japanese manga and anime, body jewelry and collectibles.
Co-owner Evan Stringer was a manager for Hot Topic and Journeys before opening a shop with his own spin on counterculture merchandise.
“Main Street is becoming the next Fells Point, where a lot of younger people are moving in, and it felt like the perfect fit for this kind of culture shop,” Stringer says.
