“I’m gonna pop some tags, Only got twenty dollars in my pocket, I, I, I’m hunting, looking for a come-up.” Yeah, those lyrics have haunted our ears since Macklemore’s Thrift Shop came out in 2012. Sorry if it’s stuck in your head now but we had to do it, especially considering that Macklemore just opened his very own brick-and-mortar store here in Seattle. And yes, it includes a thrift store.
Well, not exactly a thrift store. Macklemore’s golf brand, Bogey Boys, just opened its first store in the old Totokaelo space on 10th Ave in Seattle’s Capitol Hill. The massive space uses the upstairs as the flagship for Macklemore’s brand and the downstairs for his own Goose Magee’s Vintage Mall. And as is the trend these days, this spot is just a pop-up for now.

Now you’re probably wondering, why the heck does Macklemore have a golf brand? Good question. According to the brand’s website, Macklemore fell in love with the sport 2 years ago after playing a round of the game with his brother on the “beautiful yet sleepy island of Kauai.” After that experience, the rapper became obsessed and needed to create a golf brand.
So if you need a little bit of golf and Macklemore in your life this week, you might as well head over to the pop-up. According to the Seattle PI, the pop-up will be open through the end of the year, and past that its future is uncertain. But if you do check it out you can expect to find Bogey Boys merch, vintage, retro vibes, a two-story turf wall, and a 1,500 sqft, 9-hole putting green. Oh, and you can check out the recently opened Glossier and grab a coffee while you’re at it as well.
