I've been trying to do my part to stimulate the economy lately, buying things from indie shops and artists. (One interesting result is that the more things I buy for personal use, the more things I sell from my shop, and my buyers are not the same people I am buying from. Hmmm, karma?)
Anyhow, I got these terrific shopping bags from Annelies Bags. At only $10 each, and with a buy 2 get one free offer, I didn't expect them to be the best bags but thought they'd be an improvement over plastic grocery bags. I was so, so very wrong! They are the best bags! Ever!
Made from upholstery grade fabric, they are exceptionally well constructed. I can imagine using these same bags to carry my groceries many years from now. They feel sturdy, handle heavy loads nicely, and compact well when I don't need them. Made from fabric that was destined for a dumpster, I am thrilled to green up my life this way.
