Ugly Luggage, Williamsburg, New York

February 24, 2011

I recently paid a visit to New York City for the first time.  For the first couple days I stayed in Williamsburg, Brooklyn which has now become synonymous with Hipsters.

I liked it.  It was quirky, cool and creative.  There were lots of café’s full of people like me who do their own thing, probably create something and like to be inspired by spending time with people who vibrate the same energy.

While walking around, I discovered a gorgeous little vintage furniture store called Ugly Luggage.  Personally, I knew I could get everything in it at a much better price outside of Williamsburg but never the less, their choice of items and the way they had them displayed really attracted me.

My favourites where the gorgeous lampshade lady in a white dress and the star spotted red suitcase.
