Branded carrier bags
Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back and Play-Doh – in the ’80’s Palitoy’s factory shop produced a plastic carrier bag with these iconic logos. It wasn’t well designed, in fact it looks a bit naff, but more than thirty years on, one of those carriers was sold at an action in Leicestershire at £240 – not bad considering these branded carrier bags started out life being given away for free.
Stop for a minute and have a think. Do you have a promotional bag of any sort, that you have had for years and is still in use? I have a very beautiful stormfront bag that my ipad came in, it’s great for my swimming togs. It’s good looking, feels nice, is waterproof and stops my damp towel from making everything in my back pack wet. And every time I go swimming, stormfront is there in my view.
