Does anyone have this reusable bag? I've been trying to score one for a few years now. Eva Boutique at the Aruba Phoenix mini store is listed as a retailer but when I asked about the bag last year, they were puzzled and looked at me like a crazy tourist. The website is http://www.arubabag.com, but it seems to be unsecure and I cannot place an online order.

Yes, I bought one a couple of years ago. I think I bought it either at Juggling Fish at Playa Linda or one of the shops at Holiday Inn (entering from the pool area, the shop on your left).

I wouldn't purchase one online if the site isn't secure. Have you emailed them? info@arubabag.com

Yup, I just emailed them--have not heard back yet. I would like to pack it as a carryon bag/purse for travel to Aruba in October. Otherwise I will definitely go to the places you suggest in order to get one or two. Another question for you, does it zip close? Thanks!

Just do what I do. I bring a few dozen plastic bags from home use them when I buy things in Aruba and if a few or all blow away then it's less to bring back home.

I'm also starting to import plastic straws into Aruba since here in the US they are banning them.

No, it's open on top. It doesn't have a zipper. You can tie the two handles together to close the top, though. I hope you find them, they're really pretty.

Still have not heard anything back from Aruba Bag.
Beachgirl: Thanks for the info, I'm on a mission-I will find it sooner or later! Gotta have one.
AJ: [You're terrible] Plastic bags from home just aren't the same. You'll get dirty looks selling those plastic straws/you do plan on selling them correct? Where did you say you were staying?-lol. They are also banned at all Divi properties (remember the environment). Drink up everyone before your paper straw gets soggy ...
