My daughter, Julia Salazar, told me about your making bags that can be reused for shopping. When I lived in South America I used baskets for shopping. Maybe the old ways aren't so bad, don't you think? I am glad you have reminded everyone about something that was done so long ago and for so long.

I would like a bag

Wahhhhh.... I don't have a bag and I've become quite the collector. How many people have a "Make Love Not Trash" bag? I love to see people react to the hot pink bag. I surely would like to add one of your bags to my collection. Will you be having another giveaway any time soon? Until then, I remain Green Bagless Lady.
