The most hipster things inside Williamsburg's Urban Outfitters concept store

Anyone who heard that a five-story Urban Outfitters concept store/art space/thrift shop/bar and restaurant was coming to Williamsburg knew they were about to witnesses the birth of the ultimate hipster mecca.

Well, the store opened Friday at Space Ninety 8 (98 N. 6th St.), and it certainly did not disappoint. Here are some of our favorite, most hipster-tastic finds.

Note: The bar opens next week, and the restaurant next month, according to an employee.

The Urban Outfitters crowd doesn't put their plants in boring old pots, at least not on Isaac Nichols' watch. The Brooklyn-based artist started a company called DGIMI (Dear God It's Me Isaac) because he "had plants, lots of plants, but couldn't find anything he wanted to put them in." ($120)

"Spray around the room for protection against psychic attacks or others' negative thought forms," these bottles read. The formula was concocted by Erica Bradbury and Michele Colomer, who met at art school and "realized a common interest in outsider psychedelic music and the world of folk craft." Their business, Species by the Thousands, is influenced by "outsider worlds of witchcraft and the occult, bearded men, wild animals and 1970s nostalgia." ($28)

An ax is a great thing to have around for making things out of wood, or just for accessorizing a flannel shirt. We're pretty sure this one by Brooklyn-based brand Horse Cycles is just for decoration, but still. ($150)

If you're catering to hipsters and you: 1. Don't sell suspenders and 2. Don't give each pair its own glorious display space, you're doing it wrong. ($49)
