Spring. A time to travel light.
So why is it that every time the season rolls around, your load seems to get heavier?
It's the paradox of warm weather: no more coats with big pockets -- so you end up carrying everything but the kitchen sink in your bag.
And what's better for that than Jeanne Beatrice French market baskets: Hand woven in Morocco out of renewable resources, including water reeds and palm leaves, they feature soft leather trim and strong handles.
Laura Benson started the line nearly three years ago after being inspired by a basket she brought home to Minnesota from Provence, France. Jeanne Beatrice is a combination of her middle name and her daughter's.
She has recently added more handbag-like baskets that will carry everything from your iPad to flip-flops to radishes.
And when you tote your belongings (and produce) in style, you won't feel weighed down at all.
