When Pigs Buy

So you’ve moved on, and either out of guilt, shame, or increased financial means, and you’ve decided to ditch your obvious counterfeit Vuitton bag.

So you’ve moved on, and either out of guilt, shame, or increased financial means, and you’ve decided to ditch your obvious counterfeit Vuitton bag. More power to you! But now what are you going to do with that old phony bag? Keep it in your closet as a testament to humbler times? We think not. Our favorite idea of how to put your fake purse to good use comes from designers Wary Meyers, who spun straw into gold. The design team is known for transforming trash into cool, mod sculptures and objects to enliven apartments. In the case of their latest creation, they turned a trashed, obvious fake Louis Vuitton bag into an adorable piglet! The process was documented by Time Out New York. The bag – in its new and improved pig form - was auctioned off by Housing Works for over $200. It's not a bad afterlife for a Canal Street castaway! --ALISON COOL
