Shopping Bags



Last week I posted this picture of Oliver in one of my shopping totes.  I got lots of questions asking about them.  I got them recently at a craft show.  They are made by ladies in Kenya, so I'm afraid they aren't something you will be able to order.  They don't have a web site and are sold locally at craft shows.
I love mine!  They are heavy duty and hold a surprising amount of groceries.  They're really cute and cut down on my trips from the car to the house.  If I ever see them again and they have a web site I'll share for those who were interested.

They "are" nice! I can see why people ask you about them.

They are fun, and they do look sturdy! I love the photo of your cat in one of them. Ours all have to get into anything left open. It's a cat thing, I guess! LOL

Awesome shopping bags! And your kitty is just so cute!

The bags are really cute and they do look sturdy. Your cat is such a ham. :)

Those bags are great and would be so perfect for me to haul things back and forth from my classroom. I will have to see if I can find them at a craft fair around here. Thanks for the idea and your kitties are sure cute!

Our city will soon go 'plastic bag free'...the entire city. No more plastic bags. I don't know when this is all going to take place, but I do know I'll be quite thankful to see them go...they're always flying around on trash pick up day...

Great bags, and Oliver makes a fine model.

Hello Oliver!!!;)--we have Aldi(s) here and you have to use your own bags. I have several huge canvas bags from the Cracker Barrel, however, I love those bags you have!!!! Mine are pretty, but not as pretty as yours.Blessings

How good to help ladies in Kenya, and the bags are useful AND attractive. Of course your kitty model is a cutie.

Oh yeah, I love those bags. Do let me know if you ever find out whether they're online.

I had to scope in TWICE to locate Oliver. That's how much of a non-cat person I am. Now if he'd been a DOG ... LOL those totes are spectacular. I could really use one of them. VERY cool with the bright colors and dots. Great find, Mari.
