Thought that the reusable shopping bags at TJMaxx were probably the prettiest I'd come across (we packed most of Harleigh's clothes in them when she went off to college; easy to store once the unpacking was done, and reusable to boot!). Then I chanced on Jo-Ann Fabric's $1.99 reusable shopping bag . . . smitten. Measuring tape handles? I'm in love.
And then there's this vintagey wooden-handled bag, reversible with a yarn-embroidered/block-printed side and the reverse in a pretty retro "quilt" pattern. Found in an Athens,GA, thrift store. Harleigh's nabbed this one.
