I really love this bag. It's a fun bag - not sophisticated - just fun. The colours are really cheerful. It is a nice pick-me-up bag. May not be to everyone's taste but I like it.

I can't get over the price difference between the UK and the US. I've seen it on line in the UK for 25, and in the US for $18. That works out about 1/2 price. Grrrr!!!

That is a cute bag. I wonder if my local Joann's has it, 'cuz I have a half off coupon!! And I need a new knit bag. All of my other ones are full of knitting, and I don't have anywhere to put what I'm working on now. hehehe

Actually, it would be more than 1/2 the price cuz it's practically 2-to-1 pound-to-dollar exhange now. $18 is only 9 pounds. As it turns out, though, JoAnn's online price is $25, so at 25 pounds, it is twice the price.

See, this is why I can't travel Europe. In Scotland and England, I would go to McDonald's (cuz I was broke) and the "99 cents" menu was now the "99 pence" menu, which is twice as much. A basic meal for one at McDonald's was $8! :(

By the way, the bag is really cute and fun.

OMG. That really bums me out. I'm sure there's a good reason why things that are available for sale in the US are twice the price over here. At least I hope there is a good reason.

You're right about McDonald's - it is v expensive and the portions are smaller here. When we were in the US a few years ago I couldn't believe how big the meals were and you get free refills too! We don't do McDonald's very often anymore. We can get a very nice pub lunch for 3 for the same price as 3 McDonald meals.

Bernie,
if you have never seen the movie 'Supersize Me' you should see it... it will cure you of your need to EVER eat at Mcdonald's again... whether it's cheap or expensive!!
