I still have a bag problem...

Okay. I admit I have a problem. That's the first step to getting help right? All kidding aside, I thought I'd update you all on my bag saga.

Remember that beautiful Namaste Messenger from a while back? I've discovered that I've spent too long using totes, and can no longer go back to a messenger bag. While I love the bag itself for the beautiful colour, the fabric, and the size, I probably should have known that a tote girl couldn't become a messenger girl. And so, I've decided to ship it off to someone else so they can get some use out of it. I like that option better than letting it sit, unused, in my closet.

So this brings me to yet another bag that I'm thinking of. While I didn't quite like the Lady B, I'm thinking quite seriously about one of it's cousins: the Redondo. This bag isn't actually made anymore, so I'd probably need to decide pretty quickly. The fact that its price has been reduced is pretty attractive. Downside, I'd need to pay shipping to get it over here.

I seriously have a problem...

Were you still looking for a home for that Namaste bag? ;)

I agree, totes are the way to go!

I haven't seen the Redondo in person, so I can't comment on what it looks like. The shipping probably wouldn't be too bad especially considering the large price reduction (and the lack of horrid sales tax!). I don't think Webs is really out to gouge anyone with shipping/handling costs, and I don't think the bag would be that heavy.

Becky: Ack! If I'd known you wanted it, I would've totally given it for you! Alas, I found someone on the 'Knitting Bag Lust' group on Ravelry who wanted it, and already promised it to them. Sorry!! But if you're on Ravelry, I highly recommend that group. Lots of bag go up for (muchly discounted) sale all the time.

Adrienne: Yeah, and after reading some other people's reviews of that bag, I'm seriously considering it. Hooray for totes! :D

I'm a total bag whore too. I love them. I have WAY too many. But they're all so different. And they always fit. Love bags!
