Concerts are BACK, and I am living my best life again. For me, concerts and live music in general are like going to a therapy session. Music heals the soul, and the past year without shows has been really hard on me. I never realized how much I truly needed live music until it just....wasn't there anymore.
This season, concerts look a bit different. Many venues are requiring either full vaccination or that attendees provide proof of a recent, negative Covid test. My husband and I are both vaccinated, Team Moderna to be specific, and my 10 year old concert buddy? Well, he is more than happy to get tested as needed. He says concerts are worth it, and I wholeheartedly agree. I actually appreciate this, as this policy helps keep everyone safe....especially my 10 year old.
One thing I always do when I prepare for shows or festivals is make sure I have everything I need. Tickets, Skin so Soft for the mosquitoes, make up for touch ups, small snacks, and my phone are all must haves for shows. I also need a great looking bag to haul it all around in.
This is where Portland Leather Goods saves the day with their gorgeous yet functional Festival Crossbody Bag! This streamlined, classic bag is absolutely perfect for shows, and is just the right size for all your must haves. (Please be sure to check with your venue, as some have started requiring clear bags.) Mine is in their Honey color, but they have several gorgeous variations to choose from!
The Festival Bag Sizing, for reference:
Top Width: 9"
Bottom Width: 8"
Adjustable Crossbody Strap dimensions:
28" to 52"
Check out pics from the first show of the season below. It was pretty awesome, because while we had Lawn Seats, a venue employee randomly came up to us and handed us tickets to the Pavilion, and they were GREAT seats! The Black Crowes were amazing live, and were a wonderful way to usher in live music for 2021.
Another awesome find from Portland Leather Goods is their Laptop Backpack. Mine is in Cognac, but just like the rest of their products, several beautiful colors are available.
This tall and slim-profile leather backpack was designed with the minimalist in mind. This backpack is perfect for the necessities, which might include files, folders, and a tablet or 13" laptop (based on MacBook Pro dimensions). Includes a large front zipper pocket, small interior pocket and buckle strap-adjustment system.
Portland Leather Goods uses only the best, U.S. sourced leather, which is incredibly easy to care for. With time and use, the natural oils in the leather will rise to the surface, developing a beautiful patina and smoothing any scuffs or scratches that may have accumulated.
Their full-grain and gently brushed leathers are among the strongest and most durable available, and the unique texture and natural imperfections from the cow’s life have not been removed. These marks are proof that the leather will become more beautiful with age.
Please note that their pebbled leather, like all of Portland Leather Goods' leather, is a natural product. You may notice changes in grain or texture throughout your bag. Other companies artificially press a pebble texture into their leather, but the pebbling of our leather is achieved naturally through an extra tumbling process which leaves some areas of the hide smoother than others. I absolutely LOVE the added character this brings!
