This is the Elongated "V" Market bag. A versatile bag that holds many items from fruit and vege to heavy cans and bottles. It is made from a practical elongated V stitch that gives a lovely lacy appearance, airiness, and strength. The bag will have heads turning and people wanting to know where you go such a wonderful bag.
Now I hope you read the above in an infomercial style, because that is how I wrote it.
With all that being said it is a very handy bag to have, and can carry a lot or something big and chunky.
My partner keeps one in his glove compartment as an emergency bag, and apparently we have more emergency bag use than you might think.
