The right bag can bring an entire outfit together, especially if the entire outfit is wadded into the bag. Store stylishly with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of bags, bins, and storage accessories at the Scout by [Bungalow Co.] (http://www.bungalowco.com/) pop-up store in South Norwalk.
Scout by Bungalow's playful and durable bags, bins, backpacks, and laptop cases, which have earned praise from Real Simple magazine for “fun designs, vibrant color, and quality materials,” tote and organize belongings in collapsable style. Beverage bottles peek over the rim of a blue-and-white striped Spirit Liftah bag ($7), inspiring sailors to garb champagne bottles in a color-coordinated outfit for ship christenings. The pink-striped Gigah Lil’ Slim case ($20) cradles laptops, and the Uptown Girl tote swings from fashionable shoulders, sporting amber plaid print on a bright orange background ($30). Patrons can lug everything from ball bats to backgammon boards in Scout's pin-striped Junque Trunks ($40), which boast enough space to house even the most demur umpire.
Brightly colored bags, bins, and accessories line shelves along the white-paneled walls of the pop-up store’s cheerful interior. Sloped ceilings create a quaint, cozy ambiance, and customers can hide their selections from on-looking jealous crates behind the shop's white columns.
