But what IS the it-bag of Park Slope, I wondered a few weeks ago. Is it the free-when-you-join Coop bag? Is it that ubiquitous Brooklyn Industries printed tote?
No. No, it isn’t.
FiPS just discovered the self-appointed official tote of the Slope, called — appropriately enough — the Park Slope tote. From Nine West, it’s an “elegant” number “crafted out of wrinkled PVC with silver tone hardware.” And it’s currently available on Overstock.com.
I guess it’s practical? And here in Park Slope, we are nothing if not practical. Well, okay — we’re also silver-tone, vegan, and wrinkled.
