One of the last things on the minds of flea market vendors or people hosting a tag sale is providing shopping bags for buyers. Sure there are plenty of plastic bags floating around, but as the production of plastic bags are cut and more stores charging five cents per bag in an effort to minimize plastic waste, doesn’t it make sense to have a cool tote bag of your own?
Here are three cool tote bag ideas for the whole family’s weekend treasures:
