My new favorite...
...tote! And talk about a recession beater - while I have a deep love for J.Crew, their madras tote (below) just can't compare. L.L. Bean offers three different sizes: mini (7inx7.5x5, $19), medium (12inx13x6, $25), and large (15inx17x7.5, $29), two shades of patchwork, extremely sturdy construction, monogramming for just $6, and a lifetime guarantee.
J. Crew? They offer one patchwork and one size for $68. It clocks in at 13x17x8, in between L.L. Bean's medium and large offerings, so you do the math!
