My love of tote bags most likely stems from the constant use of them when I was little. I have many memories of my mom using one (or more) wherever we went. Not to mention their practicality. I found this one while digging in the depths of bag-storage in my basement. I used this bag when I was in preschool and all throughout my childhood (I especially remember it holding piano lesson books for a while) and it is still in perfect working condition. And it's cute...in an early '90's sort of way.
