happy earth day!

our signature market bag in burlap with jute strap, is plastic lined, the perfect carry-all...I use it for groceries, laundry, recycling, plants, flea market shopping, road's lightweight, waterproof, and spacious...i discovered these bags years ago and used them for photo shoots and always kept a stash of them in my car...
they kept everything organized and were easy to carry around and looked good too!
I tracked down the company that makes them and we customized them in this size and stamped them with The New General Store logo...A great item to invest in for earth day!
