I’ve got to be honest, I still don’t really know what a trunk show is. I think it’s where people bring trunks of goodies and open them up to be sold, or it could be the equivalent of a car boot sale (like we have in the U.K.), seeing as ‘boot’ there means ‘trunk’ here. Who knows, eh.
Anyway, tonight I headed to a great ‘trunk show’ in Brooklyn. Elise, River, Taylor and Julian live above a tattoo shop in Greenpoint, and tonight it opened its doors to people for a browse and some wine and snacks. So I joined them for a look around.
As gorgeous as all of the wares were, very few of them had prices on, which always scares me because I assume they’ll all be hundreds of dollars when I go to buy. And I don’t want to look like a cheapskate by asking the price and then running away. So the dainty jewelry and snug hats went untouched. (The wine didn’t though.)
This place had a great atmosphere and I loved how it was held in a tattoo shop. Who knows, maybe I should revisit tomorrow for a free Fridays 13th tattoo…
