Needs Your Old Seed/Feed Bags

mine is not an opinion as I try to keep mine to myself, but I have a small business and am trying to reach people in this area who might be feeding animals or the birds. I need your feed bags. I make handbags from these and am running out of anything to work with! Don't trash them, I can recycle them. Email
