We Want Maggie Boyd’s Impossible-To-Get, Limited Edition “Danse Russe” Tote Bag

We’re adding this special Maggie Boyd tote bag – inspired by the William Carlos William poem, “Dance Russe” – to our growing Christmas wish list. It has the rare appeal of being both a present and wrapping, so it’s essentially a two-in-one holiday gift. Not only does the thing feature a beautiful illustration done in Boyd’s signature, whimsical style on one side, but it also includes the aforementioned poem in the artist’s all-caps on the other.

Alas, considering the speed with which Boyd’s ceramics are snatched up online, the collaborative piece sold out just before we could share our yen for it. The Carrall Street Canvas Company bag is fitted with an interior pocket that contains a Molasses Books re-print of William’s 100-year-old book of poetry, “AL QUE QIUERE!”. Sadly, there were only 50 available through Boyd’s online Winter Shop, and all of them were snapped up pretty much immediately. Still — true to the nature and tradition of the CTWW column — just because we can’t have it doesn’t mean we stop wanting it.
