mia tote

thanks so much for your sweet comments on my previous post.  I don’t like to post photos of myself that often.  {or actually, I take a photo of myself then realize how silly I look and don’t post it!}  but dlb took that photo of my yesterday and for once, I liked it!

now, to answer your questions about my purse!!  some of you may know, I’ve been madly on the hunt for a new bag for awhile now.  a bag that I can carry my lunch in, a change of clothes, shoes, my sigg, and everything else I might carry in my purse – all at once.  I’ve been toting around an old bright red Patagonia Half Mass bag for AGES and while I love it, it just wasn’t stylish.

enter Ellington.

the amazing ladies at Ellington contacted me a few weeks ago to let me know about their bags and I was thrilled.  not only did I find the perfect bag, but they are a local company!  I hopped on my bike and headed to their location in NW Portland to pick up my new fancy Mia Tote.  and yes… it can hold ALL of those items above and fits into my bike basket AND has a cross body strap.  success!

    I’ve owned several Ellington bags and a wallet, and they are incredibly well-made. You will enjoy it for years!

    Oooh! I’ve found a very affordable bag I may have to go for when I’ve got just a smidge more cash. Great company; enjoy your new bag!

    What a great-looking bag! I love that it’s classic, and not overly-oversized. I can’t take the current oversized bag trend. Nice price, too!
