Hi Patty. I LOVE SU tote bags. I have bought them at used stamp sales from other demonstrators. I had to give up being a demonstrator some time ago when I almost lost part or all if my right foot. Can't brlieve how fast the infection went from red to veery BLACK toes. Now I have a broken back that just doesn't want to heal. I'm a very poor surgery risk. I love the bundles in the holiday mini. ha, ha. Can't really call it a "mini" any more.

Ellen McCarthy

Hi Patty, I would love to win a set of those great bags! I've had such fun watching your posts, almost like being there, but not quite as good! Had to stay here in California!
