What’s going on here? My site started ten years ago this month and to celebrate I’m giving away something each weekday. Because I like you.
Welcome to Wednesday and it’s giveaway: a Trourbadour Tote Bag in the color of your choice from Crystalyn Kae. This is an awesome bag, it can fit a laptop (up to a 15″ Macbook), has many useful interior pockets (go see the pictures), a zipper top, and a gathered design in front that allows you to stuff the bag should you need (it can hold a water bottle and a pair of shoes, I see possibilities here). I see Crystalyn Kae bags on the shoulders of girls wherever I go in Seattle, her Topstitch Hobo seems to be a favorite (at least from my highly unscientific pole of, well, my observations) and she always has a nice big booth at UCU (a big craft and handmade goods show here in Seattle that is worth traveling for). Crystalyn Kae bags are made from an embossed coated canvas which is lightweight and waterproof (necessary here) and it can even be thrown into the washer. The bags are all made by hand in the US and it’s very good construction (I have examined it), have comfortable handles, most of them are vegan (unless otherwise noted), and have perfectly chosen contrasting lining. One of her newest items is the Pleated Clutch and I think I have a crush on it.
If you’d like to win the fabulous Troubadour Tote Bag please leave a comment with this post, and if you’d like something to chat about answer this question: Do you prefer your bags in neutrals or bright colors? Me? I have been trying my utmost to buy bags in bright colors since my wardrobe stubbornly, perhaps reliably, stays in the range of black to gray. Having colorful bags means I can accessorize to my mood without thinking too much about it. So far it’s working, I think. Alright, you have until 10 a.m. on Thursday, May 19th to enter, the fine print applies. Good luck! Closed, thank you for entering!
