Totes designed by Nicholas Kennedy
As you probably already know, the first 100 people through the door on each day will get an awesome tote bag filled with handmade, local and indie goodness. For more information on the swag bag stuffings, check this tag.
But the bags themselves may be the biggest gems this year. Feeling a little cruddy about buying relatively inexpensive and flimsy totes in the past (don't get me wrong, the old totes are all good but they could be better), I wanted to make the bags as durable as possible this time around. I just didn't want to add to any more waste in what we do. So I approached our long-time partners at Etsy with the dilemma. You see, buying indestructible recycled cotton canvas totes is not within our normal budget. And guess what? They agreed with my concerns and stepped up to sponsor the investment in these super-sturdy totes.
So these awesome totes that will last forever (or thereabouts) are generously supported by Etsy. It is very gratifying to have such an amazing collection of friends, partners and sponsors who 'get things.'
If you miss the morning rushes, there will be a few more for sale at $15 each. Just look at the merch and reception table.
