The best resource for great local shopping!

There is amazing stuff close by – local artisans and independently owned retailers, cool things to do and eat, and great charities to support. It’s good for the economy, the environment and the soul.

Bags have been prominently featured in the blog recently.  And why not - they always fit, they don't sass back, and they carry our most basic of needs (lipstick that is).  CocoBags is a new 100 Mile Finds vendor that makes such a bag with panache.

For example, this messenger bag is for bike couriers with a certain je-ne-sais-quoi.  Beautiful cotton twill printed fabric exterior with matching cotton twill lining. Padded with felt interfacing for comfort, and protection of contents. Double and triple stitched for durability.

I particularly love this little red number - LOOK at the colour.  Trendy color block design in cotton twill, and woven cotton check with contrasting plum twill cotton lining.  Perfect to spice up your favourite black and grey outfit. 

CocoBags also loves custom orders, contact them directly.  And by the way there are also some pretty sweet beaded jewels made by CocoBags that you could tuck into one of the pockets of these bags.
