iam8bit: Chips, Crisps, & Wafers Potato Chip Pop-Up Shop

From December 14th to the 23rd, iam8bit, a local creative production company, hosted "Chips, Crisps, and Wafers" a pop up shop in LA's Echo Park showcasing unique potato chip bags from around the world. This was an amazing opportunity for chip fans to gather and find hard to track bags, as well as discover new chips. "Walkers" were a mainstay and that's what brought me in, but I ended up seeing a ton of new stuff. Sadly, I didn't know about this event until the last day, so when I got there a lot was already gone. But, I did my homework and I've brought you a full collection with photos of what was showcased during this event. :) Enjoy!

 Here's a photo from iam8bit's Facebook page showing the full array of chips they had on the first day
