I have a really nice camera bag from Crumpler, and a very pretty purse. However, the camera bag will only hold my camera and cell phone, and my purse will only hold my iPad and cell phone. I’ve been looking for something for a while now that could hold everything I need for one day of exploring, and I’m so happy to share with you that I’ve found it!
As you can tell from blog posts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8, I recently went to San Francisco. While I was there, I discovered Rickshaw Bagworks, a fun little shop that makes a series of bags that you can custom design to your liking.
Mine came in the mail today, and I was oh-so-excited!
When I was in the store, I got to see all the models, fabrics and accessories, and decided to go with the Small Zero Messenger Bag, with a bordeaux exterior, a funky green print for the inside, and a peacock trim.
I need something to hold my camera, but Rickshaw doesn’t yet make an SLR sleeve, so I decided to go with an optional pocket on the inside. Eventually, my goal is to make my own padded, removable sleeve (unless Rickshaw makes one first!), but this sleeve will do for now, as long as I remember not to trow my bag around too much. I also got them to put on a longer adjustable shoulder strap.
It’s great to have a beautiful bag that meets my needs, looks great, feels even better, and is made in the US! All great things.
