Our smaller bags are paper, and for the holidays, we also have our larger paper handled bags--we bought a two-year supply of the Aaron Boyd Wind in the Willows bag. And lots of folks don't take bags, or take reusable cloth ones. But yes, we also have plastic bags too, and especially when it's raining or snowing, there's a strong demand for them.
Perhaps one day we'll have an ordinance requiring us to charge for the bags, or perhaps they will be banned altogether, though that doesn't seem likely in our current administration. At least we make them strong enough to reuse. One thing that customers may not know is that because we keep them strong, they are actually substantially more expensive than our smaller paper bags.
We should be in good shape through Christmas now. And I'm sure you're not surprised that I'm keep a copy from each print run. Next up, our medium bag should be showing up in a French blue hue sometime in November and December, depending on how quickly we work through our red bags.
