“Go local,” they said. Let me tell you: the task is easy when brands are as cute as Sour Bags & Totes.
The world is a small and funny place. I first discovered Sour Bags & Totes while I was (aimlessly) browsing Instagram. After a few short scrolls, I realized how adorable the brand was. I noticed nifty, one-of-a-kind bags that used recycled and up-cycled materials. I was intrigued. I made it a point to keep an eye out for more of their collection.
Lo and behold, a couple of years later, I learned that Sour‘s owner and I shared a mutual friend. Lucky for me, I had the chance to meet the girl boss behind the popular Etsy shop – and the rest is history.
