Reusable Produce Sacks

As you may know from my previous post on my reusable grocery totes, our county placed in affect a plastic bag ban. Any retail store of 10,000+ sq. ft. would not be able to hand out plastic bags to their customers. In addition to that, if you needed a bag, you could pay the store .10 for a paper bag. Or you could just bring a reusable bag!

But grocery stores are still providing plastic produce bags! I feel as though that is the one thing that consumers do not reuse when grocery shopping a whole heck of a lot more than the actual plastic grocery bags {I would reuse mine for the trash cans in the bathroom}. Yet grocery stores are still providing them to their customers. So I thought, in addition to my reusable grocery totes, you can also purchase reusable produce sacks!

Whats great about these, aside from the fact that they’re reusable, is the cost is low for me so the purchase price is low for you!

Another great fact: they’re virtually weightless so it wont effect your price when weighing your produce. And they’re see-through so the checker is able to still see the stickers on the produce!

Speaking of produce stickers here is a great photo full of info on what those numbers on that sticker means

These bags are pretty much my new fave thing!


If you would like to order some, email me at willow.little@gmail.com! I can do just about any color and size!

Even if your county doesn’t have a plastic bag ban, reusable is the way to go! Keep our streets and oceans clean as well as keeping unnecessary waste out of our landfills! Plus, these are just too cool not to buy!

Custom Order | Chevron Wet Bag

I was contacted by a friend of mine to make her a hanging wet bag for her son’s nursery. She wanted a zippered bottom and elastic top in a grey and light yellow pallet to coordinate with the nursery. She chose an awesome tone on tone Chevron print with a light yellow zipper which makes this wet bags one of the cutest I’ve done so far.

I love the zippered bottom; makes it easier to just unzip all the dipes right into the wash. The elastic band keeps the dipes in place while not completely sealing the bag off so you’re not creating ammonia and bacterial growth. It is fully lined with PUL to prevent leakage, but still allow for air flow.

I get to hand this off to her tomorrow and I am so excited about it. I hope she likes it!

Oliver’s Treasure Chest’s First Baby Model

Today we headed over to a friend’s house who just had a beautiful baby girl about a month ago. I had asked if we could ‘borrow’ her baby for a photo shoot for my headbands in Oliver’s Treasure Chest and she happily agreed. All of my friends have had boys recently so I am glad she said yes or Oliver would have, once again, been subject to mommy staging him as a her for her little girly products.

Here are a couple of my favorite shots!

Isn’t she just perfect?

We also got some adorable photos of her in her Halloween costume for Richards Halloween Special!

Thank you to my friend for letting me borrow your precious baby girl and thank you Mabel for being the most perfect model ever!

These headbands are available! Can also do custom headbands, just let me know!

Fabricscrapped at Bambu Batu

Last Friday Bry had an opportunity to have a solo table for Art After Dark at Bambu Batu. She has had solo shows before, but for one particular product or another. She has also sold her items at Bambu Batu with me or Richard, sharing our tables. But this was her very first solo show with all of her handmade goodies, plus a really cool piece of art.

And the coolest thing about this show is that it was an all kids show! 

Silly.

She did very well! She sold out of her pencil pouches within the first 20 minutes to one guy and made over $60! And she was such a great gal that she went and bought something from each of the other kid artists and even did a trade! Awe, she’s learning the tricks of the trade already.

Im super proud of my girl for being such a great entrepreneur, artist, and daughter.

Way to go Bry!
