Round Bali Bag

They are part of the collective hysteria around straw basket bags. The round straw bali bag is so coveted I saw a brand on Instagram running out of stock in hours and doubling the price from $50 to $100 overnight due to the hefty demand.

Because I don’t take part in such mass delusions often, and because it was my birthday, I went for it. It wasn’t as hard as finding a leprechaun, but it took me a while to find the perfect round bali bag. I didn’t want to pay too much and I wanted a tiny one. I searched on Instagram, Google, Etsy and finally, eBay, where I found exactly what I was looking for. Shipping from Indonesia took the final price just about my max threshold, but I kind of enjoy knowing that someone in Indonesia is smart enough to spot a trend, sell products on eBay and choose a fair price point to take advantage of Western obsessions. Bravo!

While I was there, I might have accidentally purchased a Cult Gaia bag lookalike, but that’s a different story…

This bag is the type of thing you keep forever and tell your kids “this was super trendy when I was young”, only to see that trend come back in 15 years. And when that time comes, I’ll be ready to be the cool mom who had every it-girl accessory from the 2010’s. Can’t wait…
