New Pop-Up Shop Offers More Than 10,000 Ugly Christmas Sweater Options.

It's pretty clear at this point: Jeremy Turner enjoys a nice, ugly Christmas sweater as much as the next guy.

Well, probably more than the next guy. OK, check that: Definitely more than the next guy.

Last year, the man behind Dallas' traveling thrift shop The Vintage Mobile first proved his affection by building up a collection of some 3,000 ugly Christmas sweaters and driving them around to various nightlife spots and events so as to sell them to the masses.

This year, he's significantly stepped up his game: Now, in his second year of shilling tacky, holiday-related sweaters, Turner has amassed a collection, he says, of more than 10,000 of the suckers.

Better yet, if this is your sort of thing, you no longer have to hope to be in the right place at the right time to find Turner's offerings: He's now rented out a storefront at 6333 East Mockingbird Lane, Suite 141, right near the Tom Thumb grocery store up that way. What's he calling it? The Ugly Christmas Sweater Shop, naturally. It's open seven days a week, too, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Mondays through Saturdays, and from noon to 5 p.m. on Sundays.

If this whole thing sounds a little bit like a joke, that's because it just may be — at least a little, as Turner's two Youtube-posted clips promoting his sweater affections certainly seem to come off with tongue firmly planted in cheek.

Check out his most recent such posted clip, a music video for a Turner-penned song called — you guessed it! — “Ugly Christmas Sweater,” below.

Worth noting: Fun as this stuff may be, commerce certainly plays a role in Turner's whole bit, too: That video's song is available for purchase on iTunes, if you want it.

Regardless, you should check out his other video below, too. It doesn't boast an original tune, no (that's Ishi's still-great “Pastel Lights” heard here), but it does feature Turner dancing like a fool in some decidedly ugly sweaters.
