Art from the ♥ Goes Green

To Market, to market, to buy a fat pig,

Home again, home again, jiggety jig.

To market, to market, to buy a fat hog,

Home again, home again, jiggety jog.

To market, to market, to buy a plum bun,

Home again, home again, market is done.

[ Editor’s Note: My sincere apologies to all the bovines of the world.]

GG_ETTartSMEtsyTwitter team members will be featuring organic, herbal, recycled, repurposed and eco-friendly items in their individual shops during the Going Green Event that is taking place between July 21st  – 27th.  Here are a few spectacular handmade market bags as a sampling of those items.

This organic cotton bag was hand crocheted by Jaybird Designs.  It will certainly carry all your items in style! You will be amazed at how much this bag stretches and how much you can carry! The great mesh design allows you to carry both dry and wet goods and is perfect for the store or the beach!
