  3. I visited bayan's shop and I love "all" the bags.
    This one is my favorite:
    http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=26263313

    The give away tote is just lovely and I would sure use it when we go
    to summer music festivals and farmer's market to sell my pottery,
    it looks like it could hold my water,bottle,some snacks ,my sunscreen, my bill books, money,and even still have lots of room to carry some jewelry for the shows.

  4. I've spent so much time drooling over bayan hippo bags! My favorite is the black messenger, and I love the giveaway tote too.

    While we don't live on the lake, we're close enough to make frequent trips to the beach. I can see myself packing everything the girls and I would need for a day at the beach in that sailor totebag. And I'd be the envy of all the other mommies! Mwah-ah-ah-ahhhh! ;)
