Love my bag: Mills Canvas
Posted on

Bags make me happy. A bag doesn’t have to be expensive, I just have to like it.
For me to like a bag it must be roomy, organized and not too common. It must not be too heavy and should be easy to open and carry around.
I found my Mills Canvas tote at Rockstar in Singapore. Rockstar is tucked inside the top floor of Cineleisure off Orchard Road.

It specializes in kind of preppy, understated finds, such as Alphabet Bags

And the sturdy William J. Mills canvas bags.

Mills Canvas bags are like L.L. Bean, but more expensive.
Made in Greenport, New York (at the tip of Long Island’s North Fork) Wm. J. Mills & Co. has been in the business for five generations—first as sailmakers (now a small part of the business) and more recently known as makers of high quality awnings, tents, umbrellas, shelters, and bags, among others.

They were not that cheap, so hoarding was not in the picture. I bought just one simple tote with shoulder handles that I love.

It can stand on its own and it packs a LOT

Comes in many colors, shapes and sizes for men and women

As for me, I’m just happy to have one. 🙂

Thank you for sharing! A little too pricey IMHO, but the brand is well-known for sturdy, impeccable canvas bags (and it’s machine-washable! Love it.)

Is yours the Ice Bag? I am contemplating on getting one shipped to me in Tan from this store in Vancouver. http://www.inventorymagazine.com/. Check out the website. I am a sucker for good, clean, classic lines.

Ice Bag has shorter handles. Mine are longer, can be carried on the shoulder

Love that store. It’s where I found the only style of Converse (the slim, narrow cut) that actually flatters my feet.
