Rated 5 out of 5 by from Roomy without being bulky Love the eyecatching design - everyone asks where I got it. It's roomy enough without being too bulky. The handles are very sturdy, and I like the fact that it has a zipper closure to hold and hide your belongings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved the bag! Was giving it as a gift and after looking it over, was proud to do so.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous bag! I bought the bee tote and several of the crown totes. I stuffed them with gifts at Christmas time. They were a complete hit! They are not only pretty and fashionable; they can handle just about anything you want to carry. Of course I saved one for myself!! The construction of the bag is great and the leather handles make it extra sturdy. Strongly recommend this tote.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my new Bee Tote! This well constructed tote is even nicer than the catalog picture indicated! It's great for the office, grocery, or even the pool! Also, a super value! Ballard never disappoints!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bag Great bag for the money! Gave one as a gift too. Versatile and plenty big enough for the beach.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful! I ordered mine in orange and I just love it! I am a teacher and I'm using my tote as my "teacher bag". I personalized it with my name and everyone has a nice comment about it. No one can believe when I tell them what it cost me :) At first the material seemed to be wrinkled, but it straightened out pretty quickly on its own. The handles are made of a synthetic material (leather look alike) which are not my favorite, but no one seems to notice and I don't mind anymore. To be honest, it is bigger than expected, but that seems to suit me. It has been a great buy! I recommend it 100%

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great versatility and just plain stylish. These bags are simply adorable, and have so many uses. Between last minute snacks for soccer, to pool towels to nibbles for a picnic - it's just durable and versatile enough to be a great all-around bag. And they're classy cute...if that makes sense!? Love them to use and love them as gifts.
Date published: 2011-03-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This tote bag is darling! I purchased several of the Bee totes for gifts after receiving it as a gift myself. Everyone I have given it to has loved it. It is great for toting everything from kids snacks to their games to taking it to the grocery store. It looks great and is so chic!
Date published: 2011-03-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like the neutral-ness of the tote, so it can be carried for near every occasion. I bought several of the totes around the holildays to give as gifts, and kept one for myself, too! I am carrying it for my day to day tote with things for work, and am soooo glad I got one for me, too! I hope the gift-ees like their totes as much as I do!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I got the crown tote a few years ago and gave 2 of the Bee Totes as gifts for Christmas. My Mom and Aunt loved them! They hold up so well and we get lots of complements on our bags when ever we use them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Impressed with the Quality I purchased this as a gift for my Sister, who is a Bee-Keeper. She loved it! Very well made, roomy as all get out, and I snagged it on sale-win, win for both of us!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect everyday tote Sturdy and comfortable handles make this tote perfect for running errands. I chose this tote because of the casual burlap and bee design, plus the zippered top! I keep it in my car at all time, ready for shopping!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from cute :-) I use this tote weekly and love it! I was planning on using it daily to carry my books to class, but alas it sheds like crazy if you are wearing a wool coat. But it is great as an overnight or weekend get away bag! I love the leather handles.
Date published: 2011-03-16
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Big, with a lot of room to tote all kinds of shapes and sized items. Gave as a Christmas gift to my son's teachers. They both seemed to like them. Great gift. Bigger then I thought, holds a lot.
Date published: 2011-03-16
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not what I was expecting Much larger than expected. Even though the description included the measurements, the photo is deceiving. It looks taller and not as wide. Just too big. I don't use it as much as I had hoped.
Date published: 2011-03-16
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cute but poorly constructed This is a cute tote bag which was rendered useless when the handles broke. The rivets that hold the handles are cheap. I ordered 5 bags to use as gift bags and three of them either arrived with the rivets falling off or fell off as I was assembling them. Cute but useless. Too bad.
