MY FEATURED ETSYIAN HOSTY


Reusable Produce bags by Ficklefaerie
Ms. Ficklefaerie lives Waaaaay Up in Northern Ontario, Canada and is the mother to 3 grown daughters. And she makes these awesome reusable produce bags. What a neat idea - wow that would save so much plastic, reduce our use of oil, and keep a lot of trash out of the landfills, out of the streets..................They're not only reusable, they are also washable. And I think much more versatile:
You could use them for little beach toys - just shake the sand out -run it under the water to get the rest off and you keep that sticky beach sand out of the car.
I think they would even be great for putting knitting in - just protect the needle ends so they don't poke holes in the mesh - but you would be able to see what's in it! I have at least 4 canvas bags with current projects - but I'm always having to look inside to see what's in each - but with these I'd be able to see what project is in there - mmmmm maybe I'd better go get some of those!
Even though FickleFaerie lives Waaay up in Northern Ontaria - she only charges $2.00 - $4.00 for shipping - that's very very reasonable shipping from Canada!
go see for yourself - http://ficklefaerie.etsy.com/ - cool bags!
See ya later!
**** I mentioned that I thought they would be great for washing hose in - but Ms. Ficklefaerie let me know that the seams are too rough to be used for this purpose! So, please do NOT put your hose in these wonderful reusable produce bags.

Those pumpkins down further look good enough to eat! They really look like candy.

They do sort of look like candy!

The pumpkins are really cute. The little pumpkin man is hanging out on my monitor! The others have or will be used for projects, but he's mine!

Thank you Kellie!
You're so sweet.

I have a bunch of ficklefaerie's super bags and can vouch for how great they are! I have several of the produce ones for my grocery shopping; a couple in the softer pink mesh that I wash delicate undies in; and she made me some wonderful cotton ones that I use as shoe bags. I wouldn't be without them! I even have a mesh bag hanging in my shower with my razor and shaving soap in it!!!

but, I'm so glad you visited!!!
