Bag Features

This beautifully big bag is perfect for shopping and days out, running errands, or even apparently a quick trip to the gym (so I've been told....), with plenty of room for everything you need for a fantastic day out!

The Window Shopper Tote has 6 pockets - 4 inside and 2 outside, so it's great for keeping your belongings organised! The oval metal grommet handles really make this bag stand out, with a detachable cross body shoulder strap for heavier loads - carrying 7kgs of rock samples isn't recommended (true story)! There is also a zipped top to keep everything safe inside.

One of my testers, Amy, has written a great tutorial on how to add a flap to the front pocket, which you can read here: Changing the front pocket on your Window Shopper Tote.
