I love the mission behind Apolisa socially motivated lifestyle brand that empowers communities worldwide. While Apolis carries mostly mens' clothing and accessories, I've always loved their bags for myself; I find them to be the perfect mix of casual and polished.



Oh-joy-apolis-1

Oh-joy-apolis-3

So, in celebration of Mother's Day, I've partnered with the guys at Apolis to give away this Apolis + Kinfolk garden bag (which retails for $78) to one lucky reader. The bags are handcrafted by a women's artisan co-op in Bangladesh and finished in California. While the garden bag was designed for gardening and picnicking, it's been perfect for using as a baby bag for Ruby. The multiple outside pockets come in handy for having quick access to toys, games, snacks, and other toddler necessities. (And I'm all about baby bags that don't look like baby bags.)

To enter, simply visit Apolis' website and then leave a comment here telling me how you'd use the bag. Entries must be posted by this Monday, May 6th, at 8 a.m. PST, and one winner will be chosen at random*. And, you can see more from this fun day shown right here

P.S. Apolis is offering a special 20% off discount sitewide for Oh Joy readers for Mother's Day. Enter code OHJOY20 at checkout through May 12th, 2013. And, if you're in the United States and want to receive the Garden Bag before Mother's Day use the ADDITIONAL code MOTHERS for free USA "2-Day" shipping through Tuesday, May 7th.

Both codes are exclusively available to Oh Joy readers.

UPDATE: Congrats to Doris R. from Dallas, TX for being our winner this time!

  1. Love the bag! I would use it at the farmer’s market or to pick up my CSA share each week this summer. All the pockets are great for making sure that delicate produce doesn’t get crushed.

  2. it would be perfect as a crafting bag….or maybe just for all my knitting supplies.

  3. I think it would be a baby bag for me, too, with us about to have two in diapers. But i love that it would be easy to pack a picnic in it as well or take grocery shopping.

  4. How marvelous the bag is. So many uses. One of them for me would be to carry a knitting project with me. I would be able to have different supplies and the pattern and yarn.

  5. Love how versatile this bag is. It makes an excellent baby bag (which I may use it for one day). For now, I’d use it at the lovely farmer’s market here in my town, and for beach picnics.

  6. I’d use it for a beach bag – that way I could keep my wet towels away from my paperback and be able to find my sunglasses, right in their own little pocket.

  7. So cute! I would probably use the bag for my toddler as well. It would be great for him to have easy access to his toys, treats etc using the outside pockets instead of him digging through the bag and making a huge mess!

  8. Beautiful bag. The pictures are so cute!! Your Ruby is just adorable! I would use the bag as a baby bag (or should I say “toddler bag”) as well. I have a 16 month old for whom I lug around a ton of stuff. You know how it is! : )

  9. This would be perfect for outdoor concerts! Those outside pockets are perfect for wine!

  10. Oh my goodness, Ruby is so cute these days! I’ve been meaning to do some picnics this summer since we live by a lot of parks, and this would be perfect!

  11. Hello!
    Il love this bag and I would use it for a picnic when I go with the family in the nature…
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  12. Thanks for the giveaway! I love the bag. If I won it, I’d probably give it to my mom 🙂 Her bag is always filled to the brim with random things and it always seems like she’s having trouble finding … just about everything! This would be perfect for her.

  13. We have a community garden space… but it’s a few streets away from our house. This will DEFINITELY make it easier to transport to-and-from the plot.

  14. Beautiful bag! I do a lot of gardening, but this bag looks too nice to use in the garden! I would use it as my work tote / purse.

  15. Moving to a new apartment in a new city and it’s right down the block from the farmer’s market! This would be the perfect market bag!

  16. What a beautiful bag! I would love this bag for this summer to take on picnics, I want to enjoy the summer was much as possible and walking and picnics is on my list, this would be perfect to put a blanket in along with a lunch and anything else we would need.

  17. I love the bag, I think it would make a great gym bag. Lots of pockets for all of the things you need but nice and open to let it air out!

  18. Gorgeous bag!
    We live by the water and take lots of walks … I’d use it to stash our family essentials for our walks … snacks, books, toys, hats, sunglasses, sunscreen, etc.

  19. This bag is perfect! I would use it like you, to pack up all my baby and beach bits for long lazy summer days outside with family and friends.

  20. That bag would be perfect for toting my teaching supplies back and forth. Any given day I’m grading papers, doing craft prep, putting together something for upcoming holidays. Right now it’s all dumped into a bottomless pit of a tote.

  21. I would use the bag for all my events! I’m an event planner and it would be just perfect for big weekend long events.

  22. I think this would be a really great bag to bring to the beach for all your goodies or even a weekend trip away somewhere on the Cape! 🙂

  23. I think it would be easier to say how I wouldn’t use that bag! It looks amazing for a big everyday bag – but perfect for those specialty uses also, like the recommendations for a picnic and CSA pickup!

  24. Love it! I would use it for travel. Sooo many pockets! So wonderful!

  25. Any and all adventures! It’s pretty much the perfect go-to bag for a family. Spacious, but lots of pockets for this, that, and oh yeah, that one other thing. Beaches, picnics, restaurants, dinner with friends, etc. … the possibilities are endless …

  26. Love the market bag for everyday use. Great sight. Will definitely be back to look for my sons gifts.

  27. I would use this bag for picnics in central park and going to the farmers market. So versatile!

  28. I’d use it when I take my nephew and French bulldog to the beach! A couple pockets for each of them!

  29. I absolutely love the Garden bag and its versatility. It would be perfect for me as I return to school. It would be a great alternative to a backpack, and perfect for carrying multiple books and supplies.

  30. beautiful bag! i’d use it to shop the beautiful saturday’s farmers market!

  31. love it! I would definitely use it all the time. Picnics, farmer’s market, and someday (when we can actually have a garden) gardening!

  32. A farmers market or weekend bag for me….which would be amazing because I am forever digging through my bags, so I love all the outside pockets!

  33. I would use this as an everyday bag…from going to the market, carry baby products, day at the park, off to work. I love that it is so functional.

  34. Beautiful bag! I would probably use it for picnics and for trips to the beach!

  35. love the bag – I’d use it for work and to carry my yoga clothing for after work.

  36. my mom would love a new beach bag! (and i’ll have to come back to apolis for some of their beanies and scarves!)

  37. love the bag! would be a great baby bag for me also. love all the pockets!

  38. Wow, what a great bag! I’d use it for picnics/farmers market trips now — baguette, utensils and towel would have their own pockets. When it’s a little colder, I’d use it as the perfect go-to for a roadtrip. That bag could be stowed right behind the front seats and snacks would be easy access! In a few years, we’d transition it into a baby bag.

  39. Man everyone’s taking my ideas. In any case, I’m planning a picnic for my mom for mother’s day at a local vineyard, and this bag would be pretty perfect for that.

  40. I’m a teacher without a home classroom. During the day, I float from class to class. I would love to win this bag. I would use it to organize the supplies I tote from class to class. It would be such an improvement over the bag I’m currently using!

  41. I would definitely use it for outings with my 2 girls — water bottles, crayon roll, coloring book, sunglasses, Epi-pen, cell phone… it would be great to have easy-access pockets for all of those things!

  42. This would be the perfect bag for a lovely picnic in the park. I would squeeze narrow drinks or maybe bottles of wine on the sides. I would love to have this bag!

  43. I’ve been admiring this bag for a while and think about taking it to CSA pickups, weekend trips to Governor’s Island, picnics in Prospect Park, and to carry supplies for when I lead senior walking groups. Love how simple, beautiful, and versatile this bag is and I adore the Kinfolk + Apolis collaboration!

  44. Oh my, I LOVE Ruby’s dress (thanks for the toss to Etsy)! The bag is perfect (and neutral, which I love). Like you, I’d probably use it as a diaper/baby/kid bag. I always feel like I’m running out the door with one!

  45. Adore the bag! I’d use it for a picnic lunch and for travel – my husband and I want to do more long weekend getaways and having a go to, easy-to-pack bag like this would be perfect!

  46. I’m going to be a mom in the beginning of September! (Half way there!) And I would LOVE to have a diaper bag as classy looking as this– the best part being either me or my husband would love carrying it! I love the leather straps!

  47. My sister has a garden, so I think I would gift it to her and it would actually be used for gardening!

  48. i’m starting teach for america in june and i’d love to use it as a “briefcase” of sorts for school!

  49. Wow, what a great bag! I would use it everyday by packing up everything I need in the morning for the day ahead – college supplies and internship supplies (and snacks!)

  50. I love this garden bag. I take the train to work and it would be a great carry all for magazines, newspapers and books. The pockets on the side would carry my train pass (easy to find), pencils, snacks.

  51. I’m totally looking for a larger diaper bag that doesn’t look lik one…this looks perfect! I’d love to win!

  52. We’re expecting our first in July, and I would love to use this as a baby bag! Great find!

  53. I’ve recently began painting again, and if I ever want to paint outside the house (forninspirarion). It’s tough to find something to store and separate all of the items I need to paint with- so this would definitely be a new painting carry all bag!

  54. Beautiful bag! I am picturing it filled with my kids’ trinkets and goodies for a day-long adventure!

  55. Looks like a fun day! You have great taste, cute bag helps the look.

  56. i am a portrait photographer and it would be great to hold treats, toys and other props for kids and adults.

  61. I would absolutely use it as a diaper bag! I have two little girls and between all the toddler and baby gear–the more pockets, the better!

  62. As a writer, I’m always carrying an array of writing tools. This pen. That pen. This pencil. A sharpener. A few poetry books for inspiration. Diary. Notebook. This would be beyond perfect. And the bags are beautiful to boot.

  63. With my two babies I would definitely use it as a baby bag as well. Very cool!

  64. I’d definitely use it as a diaper bag…for my first child who should arrive in November! Thanks for the post, Joy! You’re making my life easier and more stylish. Keep ’em coming!

  65. Hi! I would use this bag as a multipurpose bag: for picnics, roadtrips, as a baby bag and for the beach!

  66. This bag is perfect! I’m a teaching assistant, college student, and pack rack so I am constantly carrying multiple bags to accommodate all of my things that I need for the day. If I had this bag, I would use it for my laptop, pens, snacks, books, and all of my other daily items. I hope I win or I may have to ask for this for mother’s day! haha

  67. I would use the bag for when I go to the market. It would be perfect to hold everything.

  68. I’ve been looking for a garden bag and this would be perfect! It would also make a great picnic basket for a day of wine and cheese at the park.

  69. That’s a very cute bag! I’d use it for the beach, a picnic or just casually for spring and summer.

  70. I’m a ukulele player, and I’d use the bag to haul all of my music stuff around! The pockets would be great for all the random gadgetry like tuners and book lights that I find myself carrying around.

  82. I would use this bag for the beach, park, market, all sorts of things. Such a great company!

  83. What a beautiful bag! I would use it just the way you do. As a bag for you and your little one. My little one would probably stuff each pocket with a different fire truck, trash truck and ice cream truck. Then the remaining outside pockets would probably have some pretzels for us to snack on at the park. Love it!

  84. There are so many great options for using this bag… On a picnic, at the beach, on a walk with family, to the farmer’s market. It is a perfect tote and cute too! 🙂

  91. I would use the baby as a diaper bag! I’m pregnant and looking for a not-so-baby-looking bag!

  92. I’d give it to my mom for Mother’s day! She is an avid gardener and I can see her storing her tools in the cute front pockets.

  93. Wow! What an amazing brand! I will definitely have to show them to my fiance. I would use the garden bag as a camera bag. I just recently got my first dslr and have been looking for the right bag to carry it in. This one looks perfect. Thanks for such a great giveaway!

  94. Hi Joy,
    Do you find the Loeffler R shoes run true to size? Supercute but I’m hesitant to really order up a size as suggested. Thanks!

  101. I need a versatile bag to stick baby supplies and carry my wallet and lipgloss without either looking like Mary Poppins or a bag lady!

  102. Such a wonderful bag 🙂 I’d actually gift this bag to my mom, who’s always complaining that she can’t find things in hers. The multiple pockets would be perfect for her!

  103. Love the bag! would be great to storing my art supplies for when i go out to paint.

  104. The bag is perfect! I’d pair down my purse, office tote, and lunch bag and could fit everything in the Kinfolk Garden Bag! I love the compartments on the outside- easy to grab pens, phone, etc. Love love love!

  112. I LOVE this bag! I would totally use it as a picnic bag! A few bottles of wine in the side pockets of course!

  113. i’m expecting my first child in early september, and my mother-in-law will be helping with nanny duties. as she has difficult climbing stairs, and would therefore be unable to change her in the nursery, this would be a great “travel nursery” for her to use on the first floor. fingers crossed!

  114. I love this bag! This would be great at the beach – pockets for iPod, sunglasses, phone.

  115. I don’t think I could assign one purpose to this bag! It would most likely take turns being my farmer’s market bag, beach bag and airplane carry on. Love it!

  116. Such great details! I would definitely use it as either a beach tote to handle all the little extras, or to store my four year old and I’s gardening tools.

  117. i’ve been looking for a baby bag that’s cute and stylish! perfect for my two little ones…

  118. What a beautiful bag! I’d use this as a diaper bag, for sure… my current diaper bag is sadly falling apart and it seems impossible to find one that is reasonably priced and designed for ME, not my baby. This Apolis bag would suit me perfectly 🙂

  119. I wouldn’t use the bag myself, but would give it to my mom for mother’s day. I know she could use it gardening, for scrapbooking when she visits her sisters and takes her scrapbook materials with her, or even to take to the beach!

  122. This is perfect! We’re doing a gardening themed gift for my mom for Mother’s Day/her Birthday and this is the perfect centerpiece!

  123. Would love to win this bag! Just bought a house and working on landscaping and setting up raised garden beds.

  124. I have been doing a lot of running around to different things for work and life lately. This would be the perfect bag to pack everything in that I need for each thing throughout the day!

  125. I actually pinned this exact bag the other day onto my “one day” pinterest board. Personally, I thought it’d make a great/chic/ideal/go-to bag for when I have little ones. I’d love to win it!!

  126. Ooh! I’ve been eyeing this bag for a while and would love to use it as a multi-purpose bag. What wouldn’t I use it for! It’d be great for our local farmers market, the regular picnics we enjoy taking, and for school in our letterpress lab and as I start graduate school in the fall: hooray!

  127. i’d take this bag to the farmer’s market, CSA pick-up, the park for a picnic, and the hardware store 🙂

  128. Oh wow! I’m starting a graphic design class this summer and am excited, so this would be perfect to carry art supplies!!!

  129. This would make a perfect knitting bag!
    Thanks Joy and Apolis for opportunity.

  130. I would give it to my hard-working mom, a first grade teacher, who needs a great school bag, but is not a fan of those “teacher-y” bags. She could use it for everyday to-from toting, when she takes the kids on field trips, or when we go on family bike ride picnics! I’d fill it with a bouquet of wild spring flowers, a bottle freshly brewed ice coffee, lemon cookies, and some great magazines!

  131. i would love it as a diaper/lets do some outside art with the (2) kiddies bag. and i LOVE it paired with the coop the scarf with it shown on the website!

  166. I would use this bag to carry things for a picnic! I absolutely love picnics, so this bag would be getting a lot of use!

  168. I would SOO love to have this bag! I’ve been ogling it for awhile now! I’d love to use it for picnics, trips to the zoo, swim lessons, etc. Heck, I’d probably use it most everyday!

  169. I think I’d use it as a baby bag as well! The one we currently have just isn’t big enough!

  170. What a bag! I’d love to use it as a beach bag or picknick basket. Also looks like it is destined to have a great day at the farmers market. Love it!

  171. I would most likely use this as a “mom” bag to tote around all my essentials to get through the day. Love all the pockets.

  172. I would also pack it for outings with baby! With all the stuff you have to take, a good bag is essential!

  173. Such a cute bag…I would use it for carting blankets, books, and snacks for an afternoon in the park. 🙂

  174. i’d use it for summertime trips to the beach, the flea market, picnics, etc.

  175. I would use it as a baby bag to start with (first one due in July!) Then transition it to a farmers market bag. Love it!

  176. I love this bag! I spotted it popping up in the blogosphere a few weeks ago and included it in a post I did for the Perfect Spring Picnic Bags. I would throw in my blanket, current book of choice, notebook, camera, water & wine (and maybe some snacks!) and set off for a day in the park.

  177. Hello!
    I absolutely love this bag! I am a mother as well! I would love to use this bag as a diaper bag for the summer/spring. I would also use it as a to go crafting bag! Lots of little compartments to organize all the fun stuff I use all the time. Thanks!

  178. I would use the bag for airplane travel, as it looks like it has tons of easy access pockets & lots of room for books/mags.

  179. Love this! Would use it for our little, just as you have done! I too am not a fan of baby bags that scream BABY BAG!!!

  180. I have just started a mini farm in my backyard! I would love to have this bag. I would use it as my tool bag/purse! Perfect for all my home depot runs!

  181. I would use it as a bag with my kids. I have two toddlers and could fill up all those lovely pockets!

  182. Definitely for gardening! We just doubled our garden, and my tools are always all over the place. Great idea for keeping everything organized.

  183. I would use it as a work bag! It is perfect to keep things separated, and much more my style then the black laptop bag I currently use!

  184. I’m on the lookout for a new baby bag (one that doesn’t look like a baby bag, of course!) and this would be perfect. I love that it’s casual yet structured and all those pockets on the outside would definitely come in handy for those things you just need to be able to grab with one hand at the most unexpected times – I’m thinking baby wipes! I can see this bag being perfect for Summer picnics too. Thanks for another great give away 🙂

  185. What a gorgeous bag! I’d use it as a shopping bag and for picnics. Whatever the day brings!

  186. Love the bag. Great idea to use it for a diaper bag! I’d also use it for an everyday bag. Perfect for a rolled up magazine, bottle of water, sunscreen, and everything else I can squeeze in it! Also great for transporting photo props on my shoots.

  187. I hear you re “un-baby” bags! Since I am currently without a baby, I would happily tote this around as a beach bag!

  188. I probably can’t enter the contest because I’ve already bought (AND LOVE) the bag, but I will say it is absolutely PERFECT for picnics. The front pouches hold wine bottles oh so well and I love having such a quality piece instead of a scratchy wicker basket.
    Good luck to everyone in the running!

  189. We just started making picnics a monthly tradition. This would be the perfect bag to tag along with us on those outings. I would also use it for work on production stuff. It’s useful, durable and looks nice without being flashy. Just my style!

    Amazing giveaway Joy!

  191. Love it! I would use the bag for day to day outings as I seem to lose everything in my current free-for-all sack.

  193. I think the better question is, how wouldn’t I use this bag? I would use it in my garden, use it as a purse for trips, use it as a shopper, and a laptop holder. I can also see those pockets on the side being great for my water bottles! i would love to win this bag 🙂

  194. Oh, I love how you use your Apolis bag, Joy!
    I think I would either use mine to carry around my art supplies or to take with me to the farmers market!

  195. Mother’s day is coming up, and my mummy loves gardening. It’s relaxes her so much, and I know she’d love one of these. 🙂

  196. I’m a lover of big bags, especially ones with pockets everywhere. If I had this bag I would probably use it all the time, and my whole life would be in that bag. From my ipod to my Bible. 🙂 Love you blogs btw.

  197. During the spring and summer, I spend a lot of time picnic-ing and hanging out in my city’s botanical garden. The seems like the perfect accessory for both!

  198. I would use it as a “baby bag.” I also think it would be great to pack a picnic with it during the summer months for baby and I.

  199. I’m a teacher and it would be perfect to keep my mountain of grading pens, pencils, markers for the board, dongles to project, etc organized since I teach in two different classrooms and carry my stuff around with me! And on the weekends I would take it to the farmer’s market!

  200. That bag is awesome. I would use it to picnic at the beach on Saturdays and pick up my CSA share on Sundays.

  201. I had been looking for the perfect baby bag my whole pregnancy and now I have a two month old with still no bag. But this is IT!! Would love to stop shoving diapers in my tiny purse!

  206. I’d use it for picnics without a doubt. I’ve been in the market for a great picnic bag for about a year now and haven’t found one the really suits our needs. My little one and I love picnics, but don’t enjoy them as often as I’d like because we lack a durable, quality, functional bag.
    Love the salt waters on ruby! I’ve been thinking about getting a pair for my little one too. They’re precious

  248. Ah so many possibilities! I think this bag would be perfect for a day at the beach because it could easily fit a towel, swim suit, and hat in the main compartment while you could use the outside pockets for sunscreen, glasses, a book, or whatever other knick-knacks strike your fancy!

  249. I love that bag. I would probably put my computer and the chords and snacks and a water bottle inside all the pockets. The possibilities are endless.

Time for a huge makeover, thrilled to start with this gorgeous bag.

I love the pockets for cutlery, napkins, camera to record our day, and baguette for potato soup that we love from Panera! The drinks could fit in the pockets too! Such an awesome bag, I just love it! I used to have a great wicker basket that we were going to use, but before we got a chance, my darling daughter and boyfriend borrowed it….my daughter has a tendency to “borrow” mom’s things she loves and makes them her own. I would definitely have to hide this one…lol…not sharing this one if I were to win it. She recently “borrowed” my red and black duffle bag that matched my luggage…she an activities director at a nursing home and she needed something to carry the Wi for her activities there with the residents! So I am out of bags and picnic baskets! Please pick me! Thank you so much for the chance.

  315. This will be a perfect go-to, carry-all bag for any outings with my two girls. They’re out of diapers and growing up too fast, but living in the bay area means I’m always carrying their jackets and hats in addition to the usuals, like extra lovies and sticker books…

  329. while this makes a lovely gardening bag, i’m a farmer and it’d get destroyed pretty quickly… so i think it’d be a baby bag!

  346. Love the bag! Perfect for Spring and to use as a diaper bag like you have. Like you, I love diaper bags that do not look like diaper bags! Thanks for sharing your tips and ideas!

  347. Oh my gosh.. I can see myself using this bag for everything. Reusable grocery bag, picnic in the park bag, the best looking farmers market bag ever, church bag full of coloring books and snacks, and a diaper bag. the possibilities seem endless!

  348. it’d be the perfect home-to-car-to-daycare-to-work tote for me. rather than carrying a laptop case, my 18-month old son’s shoes (that have been removed during our car ride), a water bottle and a coffee travel mug, i could load it all into one tote and carry my son on my other hip.
    🙂

  349. This would be the perfect tag-along for Saturday work hours at our community farm… Lunch, tools, and our haul would fit in nicely! Inspiring company, too.

  350. LOVE this bag! Just began registering this week, so would absolutely love to also use this as a baby bag to tote bottles, baby toys, diapers and all those baby goodies! Fantastic giveaway and perfect timing! Woot! Crossing my fingers to winnn!!!!!

  351. I would use this to store all my wares from strolling in Union Square at the Saturday farmer’s market

  352. I would use this bag as my “go outside and play” bag. I never have enough hands to carry all our outside things.

  353. We’re taking out 19-month-old on a serious european adventure this summer to visit family. This bag would make the transition from car to plane to train seamlessly, and carry all of my stuff, all of his, and all of our dot’s.

  354. This bag would be perfect for carrying a blanket, books, and snacks when I read outside in the park. Love it!

  355. I am in love with this bag! What a great multi-use bag! I would for sure use it for picnics and when going to the lake. Love the easy access outside pockets!

  356. Would be perfect for a beach bag. Lots of pockets for snacks and sunscreen and collecting beach treasures in.

  357. I’m a musician, and this looks like the perfect gig bag to me! It’s sturdy, with plenty of room for everything I might need to take to a performance: sheet music, fold-up music stand, microphone, water bottle, etc…

  358. This bag is perfect! Since my kids are 1 & 2 I think it’s time to ditch the baby bag and this would
    Be the perfect bag to have storage for mommy and kids!

  359. Craft bag! Or I’d surprise mom with it for mum’s day. If i had a kiddo I’d use it as you did!

  360. Beautiful bag! I would use it to lug books and supplies back and forth from campus. I’m a working on my PhD and have a toddler, so I work from home some days to be close to her. This means I have to carry a lot of things back and forth for easy reference both places. Of course, it makes a great baby/beach/carry-on as well!

  361. I can totally see that becoming my go-to work bag, holding art supplies, lunch, file folders, etc.
    I’m in LOVE with all those pockets!

  362. I have been making a real effort to get my son out into nature more. We are working on spending lots of time outside doing things like gardening. This bag would be the perfect accompaniment to those activities!

  363. Omigosh. This bag is beyond adorable. I wish this bag came into my life sooner! I would use this bag as a toddler bag/everyday bag because I am always stuffing my daughter’s toys/food/diapers into my purse leaving little room for my own stuff (wallet/phone/keys). This would be a perfect bag to take to the beach later this month. I would love to win this!! You and Ruby are so cute in these photos!

  364. Oh Joy! What couldn’t this bag be used for? Everyday Mommy bag, beach bag, library trips, or a picnic. It would get much use. Love it. Here’s hoping i get randomly picked 🙂

  365. I love this bag! I just became an Associate Gardener in our neighborhood garden club, so I’d use this bag to carry all my new tools.

  366. I would probably use it for picnics in the park, or going to the beach, or give it to my mom for gardening!

  367. In love with this bag! I can think of endless possibilities I’d use it for, but right now I need a nice bag to tote around my belongings for travel and work!

  368. I’ve been lusting after this bag for months – this is clearly a sign that I was meant to have it! Thank you! =) {www.the-wonderist.com}

  369. I currently use a backpack as my all-in-one purse, snack/water bottle holder for me and my two young kids. I would love to replace it with something cuter!

  370. As a teacher who travels around, I would definitely use this to help me transport all of my supplies!

  371. I’d use it for a picnic with friends this spring! There’s a lovely park right by my new apartment that I can’t wait to visit!

  372. I would gift it to my mother in law. She is a master gardner and would get great use out of it.

  373. This looks like a great bag to take for adventures with my three kids. A pocket for each water bottle and enough room to only need one bag. Thanks for the intro to Apolis.

  374. It’s darling! And the question has an easy answer: a diaper bag, for the win!

  375. I’d give it to my mom to use as a beach bag because she is a super fit 60 year old water babe.

  376. I could envision myself using this bag as of course a garden bag but also as a diaper bag as well. Also looks like I can take this bag on my weekly Farmers Market shopping. Ohhh hope I win.

  377. hi joy
    like you, i’d love a new baby bag for my little girl. she’s turning one in a couple weeks… it’s time to mix it up! i think we’d use that bag to take out when we go to the beach… looks very sand friendly.

  378. The bag is adorable…would be my new summer fun, beach bag for keeping two boys things in order.

  379. Fantastic bag! I would likely load it up with books and a blanket for some spring picnic loveliness!

  380. The first time I saw this bag I pinned it to my baby inspiration Pinterest board. I think that with all of the pockets it would make for an excellent diaper bag. With my little one still under 2 weeks old it would be good to start wrangling his things for when we need to spend mor time out in the world.

  381. I would use the bag to bring pens, markers, art notebook to do some sketching while at a park or museum (and snacks!). I love the idea of multiple pockets for everything, and how large and utilitarian it is.

  382. This bag looks great! I would use it for summer picnics on Boston Common, enjoying the outdoors with my friends.

  383. I might actually use it as a garden bag! I’ve started brightening up my apartment with some potted plants on my porch and bringing in cuttings for indoors. I’ve noticed that I need tools like a spade and gloves… would be nice to have a spot to store all my “equipment” and it still look pretty sitting on my porch under the awning.

  384. The bag would be my go to bag for the farmer’s market. And the next time I have a picnic

  385. Love this bag! I have been wanting to start a summer picnic club for some other moms and myself. This would be perfect!!

  386. What a beautifully crafted bag! I would used the garden bag for, well… gardening! I have been gardening and documenting my revival of my grandfather’s garden since last year (http://opasgarden.tumblr.com). Right now all of my gardening tools are in a plastic bucket, which definitely isn’t as good looking as this bag. Thanks for the chance to win!

  387. i would definitely use it as my picnic bag; i’m looking forward to picnics in central park this summer 🙂

  388. Love this giveaway from Apolis! I found some great gift ideas for my hubby. I would use the garden bag now for picnics in the park then in the future for a diaper bag. All those pockets serve a purpose-love it!

  389. hi Joy!
    I would love this bag, in the same utilization that you have, I have a one year old, and carrying my bag along with hers isn’t always the greatest, but this seems to be the all in one bag for Mommy and Daughter, I could also see myself using it for a quick run to the store, and using it at a Farmers Market, and at the SF Flower Mart. Also, I love the embellishment that you have done with the Oh Joy, on leather? how did you do that? it makes it unique and adds a personal touch.
    pretty, please choose me.

  390. I would definitely use this bag for school. It’s hard to find a good looking bag with lots of pockets!

  391. Hi Joy!
    My husband and I brought our 3 month old son to live in Paris, and this bag would be KILLER for the markets, walking around, museum visits etc! I need this gorgeous bag for a diaper bag, market bag and general catch-all!
    Thanks so much for always posting your fantastic finds!
    Anne

  409. What couldn’t you use this bag for! I would rotate it’s uses – everyday bag, knitting bag, gardening bag (just moved into a new house with a garden!), beach bag AND market bag!! I’m sure I could find other uses for it too :o).

  410. i’m about to have twins and would love to use this bag as my diaper bag – i love how well-constructed it looks without being overly frilly! this would be my dream bag!

It would also be great to have when my boyfriend and I take our one year old bull terrier puppy around town for all of his stuff.
