grab bags.

as a kid i remember going to stores and seeing grab bags. sometimes it was at a snack shop {or crack seed store, in hawai’i}. of course, i recall going to windward mall by my house and always wanting to visit a store called special dreams. it was basically a place filled with sanrio goodies…and, i just wanted to buy lots of pens, pencils, erasers and candy from there. but they had grab bags. what would be in those bags? it was a mystery. but that’s part of the appeal, isn’t it? so when sandy mentioned that she and matthew were working on some gocco grab bags, i was pretty excited and began to reminisce of those childhood days…

these home-sewn drawstring bags by treatzone have a vintage bike screenprinted on the front. inside each bag will contain other gocco treats like a print, notecard set, and a pocket notebook. and at just $16.00 it’s a total steal {remember, you get a nifty new bag, too!}.
