Spotted: Vintage Souvenir Straw Bags

There’s no doubt that at some point during my childhood, I convinced my parents to buy me a straw tote while on vacation, emblazoned with the word “Mexico” across it. Or maybe it was the “Bahamas” – I can’t remember. And I can only assume that it was during my college years that I found it tacky enough to purge. Sad. With spring on the horizon, I’m newly obsessed with vintage souvenir straw bags. They’re the perfect, most whimsical item to carry into summer, wouldn’t you agree? Check out some of my favorite finds after the jump!

  6. I too had a hand-woven straw bag from the Bahamas that’s probably now in a landfill. Sigh. Thanks for this breath of nostalgia . . . and spring!
