Weekender

Finding a great bag for under $50 is hard. Finding one with a great illustration from a trusted brand? Nearly impossible. Good thing Drake General Store has teemed up with Canadian illustrator Sandi Falconer to create a couple great pieces. Our fave? This weekender duffle bag with a great (and very spring-appropriate) cactus print.
