It’s garden week in RVA. Time to flaunt your floral side and show off some Richmond pride with this fetching cotton tote bag.
Hand cut, sewn and printed on cotton with eco-friendly inks, these bags are crafted in the hip Church Hill store, New Normal Apparel Company.
The tote ($30) is graphic, but still feminine with its over-sized plum lettering; perfect for ladies 10 to 100. It’s also durable with city-smart style.
It’s the perfect carry-all for books, magazines, groceries — even an 18-inch laptop. Don’t worry about heft. It has a reinforced bottom and a zipper to keep things tidy and hidden. Buy now and get a change purse for free.
Historic Garden Week in Virginia started Saturday and runs through April 25.
Here’s a fashionable, and apropos, way to tote guidebooks, maps and sunscreen. And mom may love one for Mother’s Day.
New Normal Apparel is at 212 E. Clay St. Store hours are Tuesday to Friday, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturday to Sunday, 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.
