Local store specializes in ugly Christmas sweaters

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The holiday season is upon us, and that means one vintage clothing store in North Park is bringing out its always-popular array of really ugly Christmas sweaters.

Frock You along Park Boulevard has been San Diego's source for ugly holiday sweaters for the past several years. The colorful and gaudy sweaters usually sell out thanks to the growing trend of "ugly Christmas sweater" parties.

"They're just a lot of fun. I think people enjoy them and it's… people have contests at the parties, so they're trying to win prizes based on how horrible and obnoxious the sweater is," Kenny King said.

Frock You employees say they collect the ugly holiday sweaters from thrift stores and garage sales throughout the year.
