Swag bags

Filed Under Prizes 

Ellen asked, “Why is the stuff you get called swag?”

Here’s one of Wikipedia’s several definitions of the word ‘swag.’

That makes them swag bags!

I was so heartened to see how many people are already in the reusable bag habit. Here in Santa Cruz, plastic bags were recently outlawed and we pay 10 cents for a paper bag. I’ve vowed to get in the habit of having my bags with me… not to avoid paying the 10 cents but to support the cause. One time, after a trip, the bags never got back into the car. So I grabbed a cardboard box lid from the stocking cart and said to the clerk, “I’ll do it like Costco!”

The winners are:

#13, Robin Gold!
#27, Jane H.!
#36 Stephanie Kluk!

Congratulations gals! Please email me with your shipping address and I’ll get the bags right out to you. My email is kay at kaymackenzie dot com.

I’m still working on a photo post about a pretty amazing aspect of Market.

Until then,
