Hipsters get a bit of a bad rap. But with their old fashioned and nostalgic preferences, they have single-handedly brought back dying industries and encouraged things like locally sourced food and hand-made items. In fact, the controversial group has fueled an increase in small businesses from Brooklyn to Portland.
However, there are many things hipsters ruined for the rest of us. Some people loved classic books, craft beer, and vintage clothes before they were cool. But now liking those things is a sign of hipster pretentiousness. You'll want to steer clear of them completely.
