One thing that I have been constantly looking for since moving to New York this past August was a sturdy, functional and stylish market tote. I did not want an oversized basket, but I was also afraid a freebie cotton one would not last for long. I fell in love with the two-tone neutral blocking of this Cotton and Jute bag I saw on amazon. I took a risk on it and it paid off. To my surprise in the mail came two totes! I should really read the labels better, but in my defense at the time the title did not start with “Pack of 2”. I ended up sending one to my mother since she often is in need of another catch-all bag. I am very pleased with how this is holding up. Even cleaning it following leakage from a lunch pail has been breeze. Perfect shades for my spring, summer and fall wardrobes, and for winter I might keep it out against the black for some color. I am disappointed and pleased to say others in my area have found the same find worthwhile. Every Saturday at the farmer’s market I see 2-5 moms lugging one around full of fresh finds.
