I just popped over to see what people had received and it was full up!

I have one hopefully com
ing tomorrow. I asked the lovely :Leslie if I could have dark and she said they would sort.

So have been wanting to see what colours are coming out at the moment.

I can see Ink, which id like.

Welcome back

I've been using my Bantry C medium. Fits loads of odd shaped things in it: belfast sink waste, U-bend, three guttering connectors, roll of giant rubble sacks, box of duck eggs and a coconut cake plus a few personal things 😂

Thinking about going again as a small might also be useful.

But it is a lucky dip and I am so happy with my bag, would hate to get a lavender one. Quite torn as I could do with avoiding disappointment.

I guess this is the point of the sale, I sort of know exactly what bag I would like next 😃

Im impressed with the size of the medium. If I’d been picking I’d have gone for large, but don’t need that size as medium fits loads.

Lime, it is nice and bright, not too light and nicer than it looks on the website.

I got a lavender and thought the same. Have got used to it . Got a few marks but wiped off . Now fine with it and think it will be good going into spring.

it wouldn’t be first choice, but kept it and not sold or given away .

Perhaps I do just need to get it properly out of its packaging and fill it with stuff!

I'm waiting on my first LD, although I also picked up a bright orange Canfield medium in TKMaxx yday for £24.99.

I do not need another one but I got caught up in the excitement... Have asked lovely Lesley for a medium something in dark (anything but pink or orange) if at all possible.

I've had a mail to say it's all sorted, but not going into detail. Hoping like hell that 'dark blue or green, purple or plum' hadn't been read as 'lavender ooo lovely yes please'...

DD borrowed my bag today.
I've just ordered another 😄even remembered to use the free postage code. Wonder how many 100s or 1,000s have use it.

Well I finally got my bag! And tbh I don’t love it! It’s a Bantry C Medium in graphite. I’ll give it to my daughter for her birthday next month. I will say they are excellent quality bags and well worth the price we paid.

Bantry C Medium in Ink, pretty happy with that. A muted one for the days when my eye-wateringly bright Canfield would be too much (test trip yesterday was excellent though, so light and comfortable).

For anyone in or near Nottingham..... TK Maxx had a dozen or so bright yellow and orange bags this afternoon. There was a mixture (Bantry, Paddington cross body and Paddington backpack). The backpacks all seemed to be small, and everything was lucky dip price or less

Oh and medium . I’d have gone for large if chosen, but pleasantry surprised with how much a medium holds. Don’t need a large !
