Great for Shopping or as A Gift BAG!!!
I have used this Market tote in Plum Crazy for grocery shopping to Christmas shopping. (tired of having to many plastic bags at home!) It's great for large bulky items that are not heavy. I also plan on buying more for Christmas gifts and using them as a gift bag! I like the tarp-like material. Very durable (I put 20 can goods in it without any problems), hard to get dirty and so easy to clean! I like that I can trifold it and put in my VB Tote that I keep all my grocery totes in! Don't be afraid to fold it it won't harm it. LOVE the small pocket on the inside. That will be used for the Christmas Card and Tag. You'll not be disapointed with this large tote. If you can't find a use for it, send it to me please!!!!

Shopping Tote or Gift Bag
LOVE these as a shopping tote, at the grocery store or at the mall. We took this to the outlet mall and put all our purchases in this tote, it was big enough to hold everything... 2 Pants, 6 shirts, socks, 2 pairs of shoes, 2 pair kids slippers ( and a few things from the VB outlet store ;) ) and it was easier to carry than all those plastic bags, plus it was stylish and environmentally friendly ! I also use them as gift bags! Which is SUPER cute ! I'd love to receive a gift in one of these ;);)

Great for Larger, Lightweight Items
Got 2 of the Market Totes in Lilli Bell because I had never tried the MT & there was a good sale. Wondered what I would use them for when they arrived & even considered giving them away. Then, found one is great for my returnable cans/bottles. I wash my cans & put them In a larger plastic bag from shopping. I put this bag in the Vera Bradley tote. I can spot the CAN/BTL bag a mile away in my cellar. The other MT I found is large enough to organize my recycling bags I use to carry home my groceries. Those bags, in assorted colors, give a cluttered look to my auto. The Vera B. bags organize things well while adding a piece of artistic class or artistic whimsy to mundane collections of this and that. The handles make it easy to carry whatever. I would not think the MT would support something really heavy like bags of potatoes, big containers of milk, detergent, etc. Well worth the price especially when on sale. I expect the bags to last 5+ years with the types of uses I have chosen.
