Hello!

My grocery bag stash was stolen. (in my bag that was lifted) I had these cloth bags with handles we use as grocery/all-purpose type bags. They were great but I recieved them as gifts and have no idea where they were from. (no markings and just a care tag)

What do you use? Where can I purchase a product like this? I would like to do it on-line if possible...I must admit the handles were not that comfy so if I could upgrade that, I would be pleased.

Thanks.

www.ecobags.com has a bunch. There might be a co-op in MDC Co-ops and Swaps now. Check that out.

I use the string market bags from eco bags, but mine were $3 cheaper at my local co-op than on the site. Check your HSF.

Check Ebay. A while back I purchased a dozen canvas bags for a steal.

Check the co-op/swap board on the TP. A group was getting together to do a co-op for grocery bags.

I got several bags from Whole Foods but they were not all that cheap. I found really good deals on canvas bags at Michael's craft store. They were in the aisle of stuff you can paint or embellish yourself, I think I paid $2.50 a piece and they are big and very sturdy with velcro handles.

Chiming in late here..... , but Yes! to the bags from Michaels!
I picked up several of these recently for groceries and they are great little cheapie bags. I planned on decorating them with ds as a fun project, which was an added bonus.

I just buy canvas bags at Goodwill. Depending on the sale day and size they go for $1-3 each.

I also have to say Eco bags. They are some great ladies that own it. The bags are very sturdy also.
