I'm on a roll this evening before I start my no shopping for a year routine smile

I am tired of carrying little bags around along with bags of anything I happen to buy so am looking for a large shopper style bag that basically will help fulfill my ambition of looking streamlined. I recently bought this in a different colour www.topshop.com/en/tsuk/product/bags-accessories-1702216/bags-purses-462/croc-effect-shopper-bag-4787079?bi=0&ps=200 but returned it as really want a brown bag/possibly leather or at least leather look.

I also like this www.scaramangashop.co.uk/item/678/94/Leather-Satchels--Bags/Leather-Messenger-Bag-Medium-15-Inch.html but want something that looks more polished.

Budget less than £150.

Any recommendations would be really appreciated.

I'd have a look at TKMaxx, especially if you can visit a store. I love my Osprey bag, but they have all sorts of styles at the moment.

I have fallen in love with this one

www.rakuten.co.uk/shop/clicktime-eu/product/24010/?scid=af_lnk_linkshare_0RpXOIXA500&u1=1743874720&_$ja=tsid:63839|cgn:0RpXOIXA500|kw:10&siteID=0RpXOIXA500-LywCdtR75p8sb8VCO8UR9w

but of course it has sold out.

Thanks Perspicacia - I will look in TK Maxx but my nearest one is a bit of a mess and I rarely find anything there.

That's a lovely bag - looks like it's a Fossil bag "cargo shopper" from a few years back.

I got a lovely one from Banana Republic a few years ago, I think they do large unlined tote shoppers every year. Mine is looking better all the time with age.

I covet one of their garden totes in rust www.artifactbag.com

I've had one of these from Madewell since the summer and it's wonderful - also on sale and with free shipping today, so might scrape in under your budget

I really love Brampton London ones. I have a few and can highly recommend them.

Have a look at the www.leatherstoreuk.com, I recently got a lovely bag from there to use a change bag, it fits loads in. The one I got is the large brown buckle one , sorry can't link easily as on phone, but they have quite a few that would suit your brief. They also sell on not on the high street , that's where I first saw them but the delivery time was a lot longer than if I ordered direct from the website

Angelic I LOVE it!!!! I don't suppose anyone has any discount codes for this?

I recently bought one from Banana Repulic online (I haven't received it yet). I can probably justify having two as the BR is really for actual shopping and I am in love with the Leather Store one and could have it just for myself!

* Sorry that should read Banana Republic. Note to self: preview first!

No codes sorry, but is totally worth the cash!! The leather is really thick and nice quality, the only down side is the lining is a little thin and isn't fixed to the bottom of the bag but other than that I love it!!
