Shopping Bags As Art




One of my most favorite blogs, Style Redux, had posted a great feature on showcasing your collection of shopping bags as art. (just as shown above) What a great way to preserve your favorite bags, that are far too beautiful to throw in the trash. I have kept a number of bags of the years that would work ideally for a display of artwork such as this...my first purchase at Saks Fifth Avenue, Ladurée in Paris, our local and stunning Holt Renfrew, etc. It's the wonderfully memories that are attached to these shopping experiences that have a hold on me as wellthis is the perfect solution! Would be nice in a home office, bedroom, bathroom, or dressing room. (best option I believe) I wonder if it would work with shoe/box lids as well...although I love using them for ribbon storage! Do you have some bags that you treasure?

  1. Thanks for the sweet mention. I have several favorite bags on display on the floor in my dressing room. My daughter displays her favorites on the top shelf of her walk-in closet. I have some beautiful shoe boxes on display in my dressing room as well. Some of my favorite bags are Hermes, Chanel, Bergdorf Goodman, Kate Spade, Ralph Lauren, Henri Bendel, Thomas Pink, and Betsey Johnson. Love your blog!

  4. Ribbons are divine - what would I do without my extensive collection? (David, above, my boyfriend, loves to tease me about such collection)

  6. Sarah,
    I have stopped by via Style Redux and appreciate your kind comments about my photos at TLPC.
    Love your blog & am extremely happy to have found a way to display my shopping bag collection.
    This might also inspire me to do something clever with my coach & tiffany boxes other than just stack them.
    Thanks for the visit & the inspiration.

  9. Designer handbags are the handbags which are manufactured by us keeping in mind the best designs of the well known brands but the raw material and designers employed are our own. Hence, these are available at reasonable prices. The quality of these Designer handbags is also competitive in the market.

  10. Abercrombie is a brand of its own kind. Its aura clearly explains you the demand and love for its products. This American brand has become the most acclaimed and reputable brand. The clothing line of Abercrombie and Fitch has become highly successful and its demand has been increasing by each passing day. All those people, who are fashion freaks and want to dress up and accessorize in a trendy yet sophisticated way, they prefer to get their hands on the stuff, which is manufactured by Abercrombie & Fitch .
