There’s No Place Like It

Celebrate your home state wherever you roam by taking along this charming tote.

From California's majestic redwoods and dramatic Joshua trees, to New York's apple orchards and forest glades, carry the place that has your heart—and all your everyday essentials, too. Made of durable canvas, each tote features sturdy straps and a zippered pocket for smaller items. Illustrations by Sandra Dumais. Poems by Martin Geller.

“I believe there is a story in everything, and often draw inspiration in the mundane.”

Sandra Dumais' work is inspired by her childhood, children, and the "funny, tender world" around her. "I believe there is a story in everything, and often draw inspiration in the mundane," she says. She took to drawing at a young age, making books out of the musty rolls of wallpaper she found in her linen closet. Her artworks feature a mix of illustration, painting, and digital drawing, culminating in pieces that weave tales through words and images.

Comments about UncommonGoods Ode to Home State Tote Bag:

I'm giving this 5 stars, because it was exactly as i was hoping it would be. It's about a $20-$30 tote. Would be great for the farmers market or a small trip to the grocery store. So the extra is for the art which was the reason I bought this bag. You never know for sure what you're getting in terms of quality. But it's a high quality bag - very thick canvas material. Straps are renforced w/ a vertical 1 1/2 in strip of canvas sewed into the top of bag - so you can probably put a lot in it. I got it for a friend that lives in and loves California. Poem is pretty, and she will enjoy reading it when she's in the grocery line.
