Soft-top Briefcase and Messenger Bag

While I’m patiently waiting for the new stuff to hit stores, I’m also keeping my eyes peeled for snap-up worthy sales. These utilitarian soft bags have no visible tags or brands that I can see, and for those of us that dislike unnecessary visual clutter (i.e. brands) upon ourselves, that’s simply a godsend.

Cork Laptop Sleeve

Your laptop works just as hard as you do. Why not treat it this new year with a handmade, natural cork and custom stitched sleeve? Since we’re dealing with natural materials here, I do worry about the life expectancy of the product, but I have a feeling it will last a lot longer than your laptop. Also available for the iPhone.

Material:
-cork: natural or recycled
-backing: synthetic “Fibrana”
-stitching: nylon

Dimensions: Mac book cover 13″ : 390/267mm
Stitching Colors: blue or orange

Produce Bags

I live right by a great farmer’s market and I like to use my usual canvas bags when I go, but canvas is sort of bulky and not the best for smaller items. The produce bags bridge the gap between large canvas totes and plastic bags because they’re light and translucent.

Because they’re mesh, you can wash your produce right in the bag; they’ve got color-coded tabs (in a lovely palette), and they’re fully machine washable. Best of all, you get a set of 5 bags (one of each tab color).

Dimensions: 12� x 14″

Price: $11.00 for a set of 5

Credit Card Lightbulb

This is sort of a neat gadget. It’s a card that fits in your purse or wallet (it’s just a bit thicker than a credit card) and when you need light, you just push the bulb out and it lights up, while the base of the card acts as a stand. It might be a nice little gift as a stocking stuffer.

* Small lightbulb folds flat for storing your wallet
* Flip up for light
* Batteries included

Undercover Laptop Sleeve

Ooo, I like this so much more than the Interoffice Laptop Sleeve. Both are the same sort of idea (obviously) but I like how this looks like a properly beat up package.

Undercover sleeve looks just like an old ratty mailer envelope from the outside, but features a satiny, quilted inside perfect for almost any laptop. Water and tear-resistant shell that’s great for writing on; durable Velcro closure; expandable design. Imported. Wipe clean.

15″w, 2″d, 11.5″h
