Did you really go to James St Up Late if you didn’t get a Party Bag?

Bag a Party Bag

We’ve got the canvas tote used to gloat! It’s the James St Up Late (JSUL) Party Bag which is totally desirable and could be your new go-to carrier for market goods (hi The Standard Market Co), gym gear (all the gear, potentially some idea), laundry (rude, but ok) and much more.

With 1,000 bags up for grabs, this year’s magic merch is a hot commodity.  This year’s canvas edition is sturdier than ever – it has to be as they are filled with more than ever too!  If you need a reason to join our Up Late party, this is it – study the list below to see what you’ll find inside and remember, Party Bags exclusively available from 5PM to the first shoppers that make a purchase at participating JSUL stores (bars and restaurants excluded).
