Harrods Tote Bags - A little piece of heaven

Harrods, oh how I love thee. Founded in 1824, the UK store is known worldwide for its luxury and impeccable service. I shall never forget being in London years ago and reading how Harrods gift wrapped a helicopter (click here to see it with your own eyes). For me, Harrods is more like a museum than a store. Majority of the items are priced well outside of my budget but I love to go there and marvel at all the pretty things. From clothing to furniture to electronics, this store is a shopaholic's dream!

Harrods also has THE best store-related souvenirs. From teddy bears to stationery, the souvenirs allow you to own a little piece of heaven Harrods at a minimal cost. And with international shipping, you don't have to necessarily travel to London to partake.

My personal favorites are the shopper totes.

I purchased a small Black Cab tote for myself although I wasn't completely sure of the purpose it would serve. As it turns out, it has become my all-time favorite lunch bag! Stylish yet practical, this tote is such a conversation starter. Those unfamiliar with Harrods revel at the vinyl bag covered in images of the iconic London taxi. While those very well acquainted with Harrods take notice and begin to share stories of their time spent in Harrods or the UK in general.

My tote will always be one of my favorite Harrods items, even AFTER hubby presents me with a gift wrapped private jet.

Have you ever been to Harrods? If so, what is your fondest memory?

I've been there! It was so amazing...I remember wandering from men's clothing through a rounded hallway and walking directly into a food hall! I didn't buy much (I was working a much less glamorous job back then) but I did manage to bring back chocolates for my friends. I would go back in a heartbeat.

Can't wait to get to London! 2011 I'm there. But maybe I'll get a Harrod's tote before I go ;)
