Holiday Prep: Moroccan Beach Basket


This basket came all the way from Morocco to Stroud where I bought it at the Farmers' Market to use as a beach bag. Finally I have one. We couldn't resist putting the dog in it – not for long though. Charlie was highly unimpressed at being mocked in such a disrespectful manner.

  4. Oh my gosh, that dog is soo cute!!! I've been looking for a bag like that for ages! I'm still looking for a good one :( How would you travel with that, would you use that as your carry on bag on the plane, or pack it in your suitcase?

  5. @rachael - You know men would never have these intense debates about 'the right beach bag'!
    @Becky - Thank you - hope it doesn't fall apart! Woman at the market (not the seller) said she'd had one for 20 years.
    @millmollmac - He looks like Yoda in that bottom photo.
    @pretty - Do you not have any markets or similar in Dubai? And yes, I will have to take it as my carry-on bag on the plane. RyanAir better not get huffy! It's quite big!

  10. Sorry, I just saw the reply :) We have a flea market, but I haven't found a bag like that. I'm sure I can find something similar in the beach stores...somewhere haha :)

  11. @Pretty - They actually have some really cute beach basket bags similar to this in Boots if you have Boots in Dubai? There is a disgusting diamante thing on the front of them but it's only small and you could pull it off!
