We saw this re-used Uniqlo clothing store shopping bag at Lost Weekend NYC, a surf-themed espresso bar and shop on Orchard Street in the Lower East Side of New York City.

What caught our attention is that the bag’s branding and messaging announcing the recent opening of the company’s store in Ginza, a Tokyo neighborhood known for its high-end shopping an akin to 5th Avenue in NYC.

This bag was far from home.
