I love getting the Crate&Barrel magazines (that are addressed to a former tenant) just to dream about what I can't afford, but in the July Best Buys catalog on page 10, there is a tote bag they use in the staging that I keep obsessing about. Problem is I can't find it anywhere! It doesn't seem to be one of C&B's so I was wondering if you could locate it or suggest something with the same structure! I've attached a photo of the bag. Thanks! Dal M."
Oh, Dal, we've so been there - you spy something in a staged room photo in a catalog or magazine, and can't find it anywhere. Most likely, it's a set decorator's prop or someone's personal tote. We couldn't quite tell from the picture whether it was a purse-style tote bag or a canvas storage tote, so we rounded up a selection of both kinds. Enjoy!
