I have a ridiculous collection of purple things in my house. My favorites are bags, natch.

My beloved Dakine bag in the back, along with Ultraviolet travel tray, MCB in Plum, and Aubergine DOP.

This is my first Aubergine bag, and now I am pretty sure that I need to acquire more. I LOVE that color.

Love, love, love this! I love purple and think your picture is the best. It made me want to dig up my old purple outfit photo so they could be next to each other. Might have to take a new picture tomorrow, as I have since added a Plum/Wasabi SCB to the mix.

Ooh, let's have a purple smack down! I feel inspired to put my collection together. I'll see what I can do to snap a photo of my purple madness.

I have a double OP on order - now you have me praying it turns out to be aubergine!

I've known about TB for over a year and have owned my aubergine/steel WF for about 8 months, but It was just last month that I realized my car matches my WF! Although Saturn calls the car's color plum, it's a better match to TB's aubergine. And a hint of wasabi with my basket. :-)

And then there's the rest of my TB stuff. (Please forgive the gratuitous wasabi. I had to include it. If you could see my living room, dining room, and kitchen you would see a pattern developing.)

hamitee, Purple and green go so nicely together, it's no wonder you love them both so much you surround yourself with everyday items in both colors! Are those Eagle Creek folders? Looking at your pic, I realize I "forgot" to put any of my yarn stuff sacks, travel stuff sacks or smaller Organizer Pouches into my picture. It figures, UV ones are all in use!

Yep, those are a 15" and an 18" Eagle Creek Packet Folders. I too have a few more TB items in use elsewhere (pocket pouches, key strap, 3D organizer cube, ... ).

These all are fantastic!!! I think aubergine+wasabi is one of my favorite comBIHNations.

Gah! I forgot to include my poor Ultraviolet packing cube shoulder bag. Poor little guy! I'm living the purple goodness being shared here. More, more!

I'm going to have to wait until my backorders turn up before I can join in the fun - I'm awaiting a black/aubergine/wasabi SA and an aubergine/wasabi SE, to add to my modest purple collection!

After I put everything away I realized I left out a clear Organizer, two clear bottom Yarn Sacks and three or four Eagle Creek items, if they count.

hamiltee, from the looks of your TB collection you're not much of a Go Bluer! Where's the love for Navy(or Nordic)/Solar???

Er... spamjam
Perhaps this is more to your taste?

Alas, my Purple Party would be a party of two (WF and SA) so will just give another shout-out for an Aubergine Aeronaut 30 :)

My only purple TB item is my Ristretto for iPad, in Aubergine. However, having seen how thoroughly nice Aubergine looks next to Wasabi following the arrival of my Wasabi Side Effect, I think I might be quite interested in an Aubergine/Wasabi Aeronaut 30...

spamjam,
You dare to impugn my loyalty?!? ;-) Cut me and I bleed Maize and Blue! My nordic and solar shop bags accompany me to the store each weekend. However, my love of purple started long before I knew of college and school colors, and continues to persist. Aspiring to royalty, perhaps?

(FYI - My first pom poms were a green and white set from Michigan State my parents gave me after attending a game, but I turned out all right anyway.)

Moose, love that Plum Synapse! Here's my more complete (than my last picture) exterior purple TB family... alas, I cannot find my UV Travel Tray.

UV Dyneema: L Shop Bag, CQPC, PCSB, RFID, Key strap, Tall YSS
Plum: Swift, SCB, FJN, SE, and OPs

I feel your pain. My "favorite" color is green, dating back to my youth. And, alas, I live in Seattle, which is lousy with Husky purple.

gochicken, what is that cute little bag in the bottom right in Plum? I'm new to this, recognized most bags but not that one. TIA

Speaking of Seattle and purple...although I live a whole 10 miles from Tom Bihn, I'm only about a mile from this place:
Nothing but purple at Seattle's The Purple Store (http://mynorthwest.com/11/2532534/Nothing-but-purple-at-Seattles-The-Purple-Store)

Svetlana, that is an old Side Effect. It is the one that has waist straps sewn onto it, not the sleek new one available now that has optional waist straps. :)

That is something else, spamjam! It is 9.1 miles (https://www.google.com/maps/dir/TOM+BIHN,+4750+Ohio+Ave+S,+Seattle,+WA+98134/7616+Aurora+Ave+N,+Seattle,+WA+98103/@47.6405065,-122.3410228,11z/am=t/data=!3m1!4b1!4m13!4m12!1m5!1m1!1s0x549040271ab76e 39:0x1f474e0ad2a43c44!2m2!1d-122.337624!2d47.559317!1m5!1m1!1s0x54901417d1e271f d:0x240c116bb5739a51!2m2!1d-122.3441352!2d47.6846026?hl=en-US) from the Tom Bihn factory, so definitely within striking distance if I ever get to visit again.

I went to Northwestern University, and named my first baby Lydia (after the purple cloth lady in the Bible -Acts 16), and just can't shake my love for that color. An everything-purple store would be such a fun place to see. Thank you for sharing that link!

By the process of elimination I thought it would be a SE but the logo on the front confused me. Good to know. Thanks a lot!

Thanks, @spamjam. Might add this to my Seattle itinerary. Cannot say that I am a huge fan of purple, but I do LOVE Aubergine!
