Market Tote: Yay or Nay?
Here in California, everyone has a market tote. All grocery and big box stores are required to offer a reusable bag to their shoppers and really, I don't know why anyone would use disposable bags anymore. Anyway, I've recently been getting requests for a market tote and came up with this this morning.
It's about the same size as the red Trader Joe's bags so it holds quite a big of stuff. I made it from cute vintage-look oilcloth so you can easily wipe up any spills. I think it's very versatile - good for shopping, farmers market, the beach, park, etc. - and folds up nice and small for storage in your car.
The only thing I don't like is the price. I would have to charge $18 per bag and I just think that's too much. But, I'm listing it here for your thoughts. Maybe some people think the bag is cute enough and versatile enough to justify the price. Leave me your brutally honest feedback.
