Journey in time to days gone by, with lunch totes from favored department stores past. In black and gold stripes, and a framed logo, relive the glory of great shopping paradises. Discover all the character of the stores they represent, contained within vinyl totes. Gold gives an opulent look, as glamorous and sophisticated as Bullock’s, as luxurious as Bamberger’s of Newark, and as elegant as Hecht’s of Washington DC. Though timeless, the grandeur offers a hint of the audacious—just like Kaufmann’s of Pittsburgh. Keep an eye on the future with a blast from the past; experience how the traditional can receive a modern twist, just like it always has at Robinsons-May of Los Angeles (or within the fashion-forward walls of Brooklyn’s Abraham & Straus). Classic like The Bon Marche of Seattle, yet trendy as The Broadway of southern California, discover great style with simple totes made for lunch transportation.
Lunch totes can easily carry entire meals plus tiny snacks—containing treats similar to those found at the stores they represent. Marshall Field’s of Chicago featured the famed Frango Candy Kitchen. Pack Frango chocolates for a sweet afternoon delight. Mornings can be just as scrumptious, with blueberry muffins topped with sugar—not within the Jordan Marsh store in Boston but inside a convenient tote. Celebrate Thanksgiving on the day lobbied for by Ohio’s Lazarus; keep the festivities going the day after, toting a turkey sandwich in the lunch bag. You never know what feast might be pulled from within the bag; keep mealtime as unpredictable as the experience behind the doors of Foley’s in Houston. Have as much good fortune pulling out a delicious snack as the lucky wild boar at Strawbridge’s in Philadelphia.
Take lunch totes anywhere under the sun. Carry one to the beach that features the Florida native Burdines. Head to a playground, just like the fun and fanciful land for kids within Goldsmith’s in Memphis. Go coast-to-coast across the US—from San Francisco to New York City—calling to mind stores that reflect European and particularly Parisian styles, with I. Magnin and Stern’s. Experience the same freedom of movement as packages leaving Rich’s in Atlanta by conveyer belt.
PVC can be just as portable as vinyl. In either material, utilize double handles to carry lunch in hand. Dig right into a handbag, with no closures or pockets in the way, or unzip the food stored safely in a large tote. Meier & Frank can be seen in the same black and gold striped pattern, or spiced up with strips in other tones—as they go in a gradient from light pink and purple to fuchsia and red. Can’t get enough red? Come back to the present with sharp lunch totes from Macy’s. Continue with the same stripes, or proudly display the iconic star against a solid background of black, pink or red. Discover deals as great as the bargains Filene’s was known for, at Macy’s.
