Cute bags for interesting humans.
I"nside the museum, it was cooler than the Yankee Stadium by at least twenty degrees; but Freddy felt no immediate benefit from the climate. He stopped dead before a group of statuary of mixed sexes and a hot red flush spread over his face. Medora smiled faintly at this first meeting of schoolboy mind and naked art and wondered if Freddy had expected zoot suits and bobby sox. After a while he tore his eyes from the bare beauties and looked around to see virtuous parents and innocent little children passing the statues without a glance."
- The Superior Mind of Medora Miles, Collier’s Magazine (September 1946)
Don't be a Freddie! Fearlessly flaunt this retro-fabulous Basurita in pink and black polka dots, lined in pink and finished with a saucy little bow. Chic!

Dollar Store Showgirl
Created by NYC neo-burlesque legend, veteran costumer and master tailor Nasty Canasta, Poubelle Bags began as a scrap-sewing pandemic project. The idea grew when Nasty was forced to clean out her sewing and craft stash (and raise funds) for a cross-country move, and finally became Totally A Thing when, distracted by the fabulous Southwestern landscape, her focus shifted from large-scale costuming to small, unique art/sewing projects.
Poubelle Bags embody the #DollarStoreShowgirl philosophy of fabulousness based on forced creativity rather than an unlimited budget; the "make do and mend" idea behind slow fashion; and Nasty's firm belief that there is absolutely no need in any circumstance to wear what everyone else is wearing.
Nasty Canasta is also the creator of Brooklyn Boas, handmade vegan tulle boas for showponies, drag artists, and other fabulous fancy people and pets.
