Anthropologie Cotton Bag

January 9th, 2009

Anthropologie is one of my favorite stores to visit. They have the most amazing window displays and the best visual merchandising of any store I can think of. It doesn’t hurt that they also have adorable housewares and clothes!

On a recent visit I noticed a basket at the register of colorful cotton bags. Inside was a list of benefits for their member program. Though I had no intention of getting a member card, the sales rep saw me drooling over them and let me have one. It’s something I’ve kept on my desk ever since, so I thought I’d share.

Not exactly sure what the purpose of the perforation is but I like it! Adds another textural element to an otherwise boring document. Brilliant!

It’s pieces like this that really make Anthropologie stand out. I sincerely appreciate that they take the time to think about all the details.

    It used to not be about their credit card, it was just about their member rewards card or something similar. I have one somewhere.

    Love the bag and the colors!

    I use my bag to store my iPod shuffle. It fits perfectly inside and protects it in my purse.

    I highly recommend getting an Anthro card. I received a 15% off discount card to use during my birthday month. All for signing up for a free card!

    i love this bag too! my best friend did an art internship making the displays at anthro, and one day when i went to visit her i had a similar experience lusting after the basket of bags. i got to keep one. i use mine to hold lip balm and tic tacs on a suction cup hook in my locker at work. it’s perfect!

    i use my bag to safely store a gorgeous scrollwork bracelet that my sister brought back from toledo, spain. but i agree with veiled vow – it’s a terrific marketing piece.

    Anthro sent my 15% off birthday coupon in an amazing little muslin bag with a button closure. I use both my Anthro card bag and the new little bag to hold gift cards and coupons in my purse. Too cute!

    Anthropologie just comes up with so many beautiful things. I received one of these darling bags when I signed on for their member rewards program. I use it to store my earphones for my iPod so that they don’t get all tangled in my bag.
