To buy a fat pig.
When Kellie, at This Blessed Nest, asked me to do a product review of her TO MARKET, TO MARKET TOTE I ran right over to her ETSY shop Bag Full Of Posies. OOOOhing and AAAAAhing I checked out all of her attractive and creaive totes and other goodies! And there I found the TO MARKET TO MARKET TOTE... Oh my JIGGIDY JIG! I was thrilled she was sending it to me.
So, when it came in the mail (all sweetly wrapped up with a note) what did I do? I went to market! And not just any market, the oldest continually operating farmer's market America.
Lancaster Central Market has been a part of my local community for over 250 years. You can read all about our number1 tourist spot by clicking HERE.
As I was meandering through market taking pictures and collecting fresh produce I had 6 strangers comment on the cuteness of my TO MARKET TO MARKET TOTE. It was so much fun to brag about it's quality, leather straps, sturdy construction, 100% jute fabric and the very very jaunty french pig on the front of the bag!
I hope you will take advantage of Kellie's beautiful handiwork and generosity! Thanks, Kellie!
Now I'm off to order a couple of totes to use as Easter baskets!
