I spy: Chico Bag!

I went home over the weekend and discovered a new bookstore (for me anyway) and as I was browsing through the store I spied - ChicoBag!  Yay!  I ended up having quite a little conversation with Mollie the store owner and she told me that when her son went to Mexico on a school exchange trip that she sent him off with about 6 ChicoBags for the family who sponsored him and they LOVED them!  Evidently in this tiny little Mexico town they walk everywhere and reusable bags are well liked by everyone.  

Who would of thought in the little town of Cherokee, Iowa I would of spotted ChicoBags and that I would hear a story about a Mexican family who LOVES them.  Small world huh?


ChicoBag™ is excited to introduce the New Spring Colors! The Blossom Collection features four prints of blossoms in full bloom, helping to awaken our connection with nature. I received 2 of the New Spring bags and love them!  The new Blossom bags are actually BIGGER than the Sling bags and deeper too.  They still hold 40 lbs and considering the average gallon of milk weighs approximately 7 lbs the bags definitely hold a lot.

The Blossom bag has shoulder length straps, is made of durable and washable fabrics, hangs to dry and has a one-year warranty.  Each bag comes with a built in pouch and a carabiner so you just attach it to your purse or something so you won't forget it.

Who is ChicoBag?
ChicoBag's™ mission is to reduce single-use bag waste by offering compact reusable bags and packs that are designed to be unforgettable. ChicoBag™ specializes in offering fashionableenvironmentally friendly reusable shopping bags and lifestyle totes.
