A couple of friends have asked about the shopping bags shown in this past Tuesday's Weekend Notes post. The bags are from a company called Ann Millie, and I highly recommend them. They're available in a variety of styles and patterns; mine is the Large Rectangular Bag in a print called Green Bird.
The selection of reusable shopping bags these days is enormous, but I love these for a number of reasons. They're sturdy yet light, water-resistant and washable. They're capacious yet fold up to occupy hardly any space. They hold their rectangular shape when open, making it easy to arrange and find items within, and the handles are well-designed for carrying the bags comfortably over your shoulder. They even feature a small slip pocket inside and a snap closure.
Ann Millie distributes its bags through a few on-line retailers, listed on its website. I purchased mine from Amazon, which offers the bags in reasonably priced singles or in packs of four (an even better deal!).
