Shopping Trolley is oh so Cool!

I carry stuff all over London and my portfolio can also be very heavy – so I’m considering getting a trolley. I think all the old ladies who use trolleys are quite smart. They didn’t start using the trolley just because they got older but because it was more practical – the shops didn’t always give out plastic carrier bags. M&S charge 5p per bag and a plastic bag takes a 1,000 years to decay.
I’m loving this Orla Kiely Multi Stem Foldaway Shopping Trolley £199.00. It’s a bit expensive but at the same time it can last you a life time. The outside is 100% Cotton with PVC coating so it’s easy to wipe clean. One of it’s special features is that the wheels can fold up so the bag can be carried!
This is a Kipling Shopping Trolley from John Lewis and only is £42. Love the pattern and the price!

This Tug Lifestyle Trolley is quite fancy but it’s on sale for £148.94 from £355. It also has a Teflon coating on fabric and has a side umbrella pocket.

Would you use a trolley?

    I would definitely use a trolley. I think it’s one of those things that I always wanted to use knowing it’s so practical, but 1) Can’t find nice affordable options 2) Not sure if it will be a bit too much and get attention 3) Worried it can’t be folded away/ carried around easily… the other thing are Rollerskates, when walking heavily on the streets to get the places, I wish so much every time to be able to just rollerskate to the destination, it will save so much time!! I think I have to convince myself to not care what people think! The city I live in will probably think I’m a little nerdy/weird if I wear rollerskates around…

    I read your blog all the time, I love it. Thank You!

    Hi Connie,
    Wow rollerskates would be great! I couldn’t imagine doing that in London with all uneven & cobblestone streets. Sometimes you just can’t worry about what other people think. I always felt like I never really fit and somehow now it all seems ok!

    Send me a pic of you rollerskating!!

    I like the Orla Kiely trolly. I am not sure I would use one, but then I don’t carry a lot of things around with me normally. If you have to though, you may as well be stylish ;) I think it would look cute!

    I’ve got one it is a Spanish make and it is purple – totally brilliant. the make is Rolser and they do loads of different styles.
    Honestly I always buy Spanish stuff as thy make it for cobbled streets, hills and endurance!

    I love the idea of a trolley. I’ve been lugging around this enormous tote bag and it’s soo heavy. Thanks for posting this. I will be organising my trolley asap.

    definitely want a trolley; the bus service from my village to town is pretty good – why would I bother with the car if a bus and a trolley will do the job just as well? I’ve found a site – – which has a great range of trolleys (reduced price for people with limited mobility, full price for the rest of us) so I’ll be trying them SOON.
