THOUSANDS QUEUE FOR HOURS TO BAG DESIGNER SHOPPING BAG
Thousands of women queued for several hours at branches of Sainsburys to get their hands on the latest must-have accessory, a £5 limited edition bag designed by Anya Hindmarch. The bag bears the immortal words, “I’m not a plastic bag” and is designed to be used for the weekly shop instead of carrier bags. Anya was clever enough to give the bag to some of her celebrity friends, including Keira Knightley and Lily Allen, who were all spotted with it, making it a “must have” item. The bags were snapped up within hours of going on sale and are now being sold on E-bay for as much as £250 each! A lot of money for a shopping bag! I wonder how many women will just use it as a fashion accessory, shopping bag come handbag, rather than the purpose for which it’s intended, to carry the weekly shop. Sort of defeats the object really!
