I can't even lie. I am obsessed with "stuff" right now. Pretty things, obscene things, grotesque things even. Many of these coveted things aren't necessarily tangible but I'd like to report on a current obsession that is tangible (in theory) but only if my wallet allows for small miracles to happen.

Feast your eyes on the Kanazu Sen-i Corporation's eco-friendly bags. Made from plant-based poly-lactic acid fabrics, the bags are bio-degradable and are meant to be crumpled up and stuffed away when not in use. With all the farmer's market shopping I've been doing, this is a much cuter way to lug peaches and fresh ricotta back home. And as much as I hate pleated things (see ISSEY MIYAKE's PLEATS PLEASE collection), I actually really these pleated bags.

Here is my dilemma- only available in the US through the Smithsonian store, I can't seem to track it down in the webshop. I also fear international shipping costs. What to do!?
