Joom Tote Bag Review

Yet another prize I won from that Modern Typography giveaway was $20 store credit to Joom. I checked out the shop to see what I could get. So many cute things! I couldn't decide. Until I saw this:

I've been looking for a diaper bag replacement. The one I used to have I gave to a mother in need (her husband died in a motorcycle accident shortly before she was due with their first baby). Then I used a cute tote bag I already had, but it got destroyed. I've been using my purse plus a small bag just for diapers and wipes. However, it would be nice to have just one bag to carry around when I don't need my purse, like at church. This one looked perfect. It was large and cute and had a pocket inside to put my phone and keys. I admit I like lots of compartments, but if I still used the small bag of diapers it would help keep the interior organized. It also had a button to close the bag partly.

And the best part? It was on sale for $17! I had some trouble with checking out, but Joom was very patient and helpful and ended up shipping it to me for free. I appreciated her kindness.

*Attached to the bag were a couple tags, one with the shop name and logo, the other saying thank you and giving care instructions. Very professional!
*She also included a thank-you card of one of her whimsical prints, which I accidentally crinkled taking out of the package. I think it's still frameable:

*The straps are not the cheap kinds that rub and fray. They are soft and comfortable. I think they're suede (I don't know materials!)
*Awesome customer service. She has over 6,000 sales and 100-percent positive feedback!
*Super cute designs in her shop.

*It would have been easier for both of us if there had been an "apply code" box at checkout.
*Update: the straps' fabric flakes off.
