It's tough for a small business to get an impressive-looking storefront, but clothing company Aether Apparel has figured out a way to create a visually distinct, low-cost space, by constructing it entirely out of shipping containers.

Located in San Francisco, the store is made from three standard containers placed on top of one another, just a bit unevenly. Windows were created by cutting off sections of the crate's sides and putting glass in them. They avoided making the place appear too industrial by installing hardwood floors in it. Most interestingly, there's a conveyor belt system inside the structure that moves clothing through all three floors.
