Yesterday morning the boulangerie was handing out free promotional bread carry bags. These are long and narrow, to protect your pain or baguette on the way home.
These ones are made of calico, printed with the name and address of the boulangerie. At the top the cord handle acts as a drawstring to close the bag. Quite practical and stylish, although my one criticism would be that the cord is too long to allow someone my height to hold the bag at my side, and too short to sling over the shoulder. Almost all carry bags suffer from this fault in my experience.
I wonder if it is bad form to use it when I buy bread from the other baker's?
