The anti “It Bag” (with a side of irony)
I’m a bit late to the party, but over the summer, the classic LL Bean Boat & Tote bag apparently became a thing with some of the fashion cognoscenti (perhaps in conjunction with the Coastal Grandmother trend).

I’m thinking about getting one with “Coastal” or maybe “Dog Treats”. What would you have embroidered on a personalized tote?
