Camel's Williamsburg-branded cigarettes are flying off the shelves in hipsterville, according to the Brooklyn Paper: "Heck, one woman even walks into the N 7 Market on Bedford Avenue and N. Seventh Street every single day to see if any Williamsburg packs arrived, a cashier said. When the packs are around, she buys every single one."
