If you ask me, Derek (a.k.a., dieworkwear) has the best copywriting I’ve seen in a while for an item on eBay:

Imagine being the envy of your friends when they see you bring this bag to your local grocery co-op, where you fill the compartmental space with ethnical consumer choices such as energy-saving light bulbs, super-organic fruits, and extra-fair trade coffee. Or when you arrive at a dinner party and pull out a bottle of red wine nobody has heard of, or when you’re abroad and take out a stack of Lonely Planet travel guides (a sign that you’re not only exploring this country, but plan to stop at many more). Take photos of yourself at all these places, so your Facebook friends can see your exquisite taste and superior lifestyle. You can then laugh at them for being less than fashionable people carrying yesteryear’s timeless heritage totes, such as those made by Wm. J. Mills, LL Bean, and A Continuous Lean. 
Know that when you’re purchasing this item, you’re getting an authentic Canadian product from an authentic Canadian person (me), who genuinely bought this while he was in Canada. That gives this multiple layers of authenticity, sort of like a bean and cheese dip made with Lucerne’s “Mexican Four Cheese Blend.” 

You can buy his Hudson Bay Company tote bags for $30 each.
