You’re a good scout, no question. You help little old ladies cross the street and give up your seat on the bus to passengers with armloads of groceries.
And seeing as one good deed serves another, it’s time to reward yourself with a bag from Scout.
The local company works with artisans in Nicaragua to create handmade crocodile clutches that are pleasantly classic and look smashing dressed up or down. A portion of sales goes back into social programs for the underserved Nicaraguan communities and children’s health and education.
Pick from three styles — the Telica, a lovely envelope shape; the Leon, a trapezoid; and the Granada, a sleek rectangle — in a variety of colors like rich mocha, smooth ginger, and deep lime. Each bag has a simple snap closure; suede lining; and enough room for wallet, keys, phone, and makeup.
So you’ll always be prepared.
