Baggu, the purveyor of the handiest bags for every adventure (shopping or otherwise), moved its studio and half its team from Brooklyn to SF this past fall. CEO Emily Sugihara explained that the brand was born of a desire to make an "attractive and functional bag to bring home groceries." And, as a house-warming of sorts, Baggu has launched a pop-up inside the Voyager Shop through New Year's Day. "Slay" (in Baggu-speak) your holiday shopping by stopping in and picking out bags for everyone on your list.
The stock currently includes canvas, nylon and leather bags, surf bags and accessories, and prices range from $7-$180. In this dog-crazed town, how can we not adore these pretties? And this drawstring purse in caramel leather is sure to be a closet staple for years to come. The store is open daily from 11pm to 7pm. And this Friday, December 6, there will be an official launch party from 6 to 9pm. Stop in for refreshments and stock up on the perfect stocking stuffers.
