fab find : a visit to the market.

•  24.July.2012

I don’t know if you’ve heard but Seattle has decided to say “ta ta” to the plastic bag. There is a new plastic bag ban¬†that has taken effect in Seattle, prohibiting all retailers from providing their customers with one time use plastic bags. It’s actually something I’m super duper stoked about as Adam and I have been trying for YEARS to be more conscious¬†about using eco friendly bags on our shopping trips. SO, now that we are being forced to do so, we kinda don’t have a choice but to remember to carry them in with us. Unfortunately, between the two of us we probably have the worst memories on the planet, so remembering is the biggest challenge of all!

I can’t even begin to tell you the number of people I’ve seen in the past week hand carrying all of their groceries in a bundle because they forgot to bring a bag (I laugh when I see it even if I shouldn’t…whoops!). So I thought instead of just giggling I’d help us Seattle folk out with a little roundup of fab sacs/totes/bags etc…perfect for your next shopping trip or afternoon at the market.

We’ve been forgetting too! It’s easy when we leave and go right to the store, but if we stop somewhere on our way home we don’t have them! And though we’re pretty good about the groceries, I forget that we need them in other kinds of stores too! Oy. I need a good one to keep in the car and one for my purse – been thinking baggu…

It’s hard to remember huh?!Ooooh and I love Baggu! Good choice!


I love your bag picks, especially the zara and madewell ones. I have a renoir tote that my mom picked up for me like 10 years ago and I’m trying to figure out if I should retire it or fix the strap that is becoming threadbare. Thanks for some new options.
