Streetcar Bag

As the song says I went to lose a jolly hour on the trolley and lost my heart instead. The Streetcar Bag can carry the things to occupy you for that hour. A light weight flat bag sized to fit either a magazine or book for the traditionalist or an iPad or reader for the modern traveller. They are not too big and not too small to take along. A lightweight companion for your excursions either into the big city or the countryside

Made in a limitless combination of textures and colors, these bags are pieced to create one of a kind interest. Each bag has a contrasting double handle. They are lined and have a convenient inside pocket for your phone or other little extras. Easy to roll up empty and take along for shopping at the Farmer’s market or vacation trip.

Of course they can be ordered in custom print combinations.

The Story Behind the Name…

council_crestMy great-grandparents were bakers by trade. Having operated two bakeries in Manhatten, when Paul & Anna moved to Portland, it seemed only natural to open another here. Shortly after, sometime in 1920, the pair opened the Cottage Bakery near 34th and East Belmont.

Running right in front of the store — and up past their house near 43rd — was the Belmont Streetcar. This bag was inspired by those classic, oversize magazines of the streetcar era, and would be as at home on today’s streetcars, or anywhere else you need to carry a book, some magazines, or small project.
