My mum-in-law's always carrying a small paperbag instead of a handbag for her mahjong sessions, to the hairdresser or visits to the doctor! She says that it's inconspicious and wouldn't be a target for snatch thieves. Well, she has a good point but I still think it'll be nice if she'd carry this small inconspicious tote (size of her paperbag). I even made her a pocket inside for her reading glasses. Let's hope she'll like it. p/s: It's completely reversible, too!
