Bag Lady

Dear Friends:

This is a selling newsletter .

First the bags. We have cotton string bags for your shopping. When I picture these I see women with thick ankles going to corner stores to get food for the day. I think I have been watching too many old movies! I understand it is very chichi to carry one of these bags now.

Second Turkey Brining Bags and Turkey Stuffing Bags. I am not late for Thanksgiving, I am early for the Christmas.

Third, we have some new stock of foldable shopping bags – the kind you keep in your purse or bag. The one you get when I say “do you have a bag” and you smugly smile and dig it out (knowing full well you forgot the other ones in the car). (Yes, I have done this too many times!)

We were asked for masculine ones and these are some of the ones we brought in. Having a man working here was useful; what Tammy and I suggested as masculine, got a raised eyebrow, so we deferred to Eli’s choices.

But I still got one of my choices.

To me this bag celebrates strong, proud black women.

See you at Scoop N’ Weigh, the Candy Store for Grownups!

P.S. I have digressed outside of my usual style of tea towels and have brought in a line of homespunny – oxford cottonish – back to earthy ones. These feel wonderful, like soft pj’s. And are a nod to my sister and others who look with dismay at my flowery or boring basic tea towels and give a sigh as they reach for the least offensive one. My sister would approve of these!

P.P.S. So does your scarf still fit? Mine seems to be longer. Does closet air that shrinks clothes, also make scarves grow? Maybe my neck is thinner, if it is, it’s the only thing!

P.P.P.S. Here’s a new saying to ponder.
