Thursday Giveaway!

Today’s giveaway is from Moop, the Pittsburgh studio that makes beautiful handmade bags for men, women and kids. Their bags are soft and roomy and perfect for adventures around town. (For the past two years, I’ve used their blue market bag as Toby’s trusty diaper bag.) They also have a new waxed yellow backpack, a messenger bag for computers, and beautiful letter bags.

Today Moop is letting TWO lucky readers each choose their favorite bag. Which would you pick? (I’m partial to their entire waxed collection, especially this red carrier.)

For a chance to win, please visit Moop’s online shop, and leave a comment below telling us your favorite bag. Two winners will be chosen at random tomorrow. Good luck! Update: Heather M. and Annie W. are our lucky winners. Thanks for playing.
