Personal Shopper: The Crate & Barrel catalog's prop tote for Dal

Dal M. wrote, "Hello! 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!

1 - Gap Coated Canvas Tote ($33 on sale, in 5 colors)

2 - Pilar Abril Ciclamen Tote ($94)

3 - Skip Hop Go Bin ($13)

4 - Clava Canvas/Leather Everyday Tote ($88 on sale)

5 - Alvin Large Canvas Craft Storage Tote Bag ($15 on sale)

6 - Eddie Bauer Firewood Tote & Matchstick Holder Set ($169)

7 - Gump's Generous French Canvas Bag ($120-190 on sale, in 2 colors)

8 - Lands End Route 63 Snap Tote ($138, in 3 colors)

Frustrated in your search for that perfect leather handbag, red stiletto pump, or whatever makes your heart go thump in the night? Send us a request and we might do the shopping work for you in a future Personal Shopper feature!
