This lovely little ebook is full of good looking bags and I challenge any bag lover (like me!) to go through it and not find something that they simply HAVE to have! I have actually found several that I would like to have and have added them to my ever growing TO DO list.

Great article! I have actually made my own grocery bag, around here it is not easy to get one on these, especially when I go to the market I was always offered a polyethylene bag till when I had to make my own grocery bag. I do hope this catches on with everyone because that protects the environment and it is very convenient. Thank You!!!
