Bronx Socialite Tote Bags are Now Available at the Bronx Museum of the Arts!

I am so so happy and excited to announce that you can now purchase tote bags designed by The Bronx Socialite at The Bronx Museum of the Arts.  The two designs available at the gift shop are the I heart the Bronx tote and the Bronx Born tote.  Right now the Cafepress store is unavailable so for the time being, these are available exclusively at the museum.

They are roomy, sturdy, and perfect for work, school, or the gym.
