Arty Zippered Pouches

Stay organized and keep the sand out of your belongings with zipper pouches. They are great for small items like lip balm, headphones, pens, mints, makeup and more! I always have at least one with me to hold my external battery, camera memory cards and other small things I don’t want to get lost in my bag.

Here are some zipper pouches designed by artists with sweet summery designs! They come in small, medium and large sizes.

Cute Summer Backpacks

Perhaps you prefer a backpack to a tote bag? Here are some adorable backpacks that are ready for a picnic or day at the beach.

I hope you like these artist designed tote bags, backpacks and pouches. Have fun this summer!
