This French phrase basically translates to “No campers or nomads permitted.” Aw, c’mon! It reminds me so much of the 1970 hit song “Signs.” When I saw a photo of this actual French sign I knew I had to paint it on a canvas bag. So here’s my tribute to all the campers, nomads and gypsies everywhere! And with this bag – you are permitted to carry it Everywhere!!

I’m sure the story went something like this… a group of friends were traipsing along the French countryside and they stumble across the most beautiful, magical place EVER to pitch a tent. Probably atop some gorgeous hills overlooking a valley with a winding stream and an old winery (it’s our story – we can throw in whatever we like!) with rows and rows of glistening grapes. Imagine their joy and delight!!!

So they proceed to unload their gear and set up camp, all the while whistling (French tunes of course!) smiling and laughing at their good fortune at finding such a campsite. Until one exclaims, “Oh mon Dieu!” and points to the SIGN that reads INTERDIT AUX NOMADES ET CAMPEURS. “Il est horrible!” the others cry in dismay.

Then they all start singing the song “Signs.” Okay, so maybe that’s a bit far fetched, but you get the point. It’s just not right!

~~ NOTE: Because this bag is so awesome it’s often backordered! Cool people all around the world want to carry it. Please allow me a few days to paint, and I will promptly ship. During the holidays there may be a longer ship time.

THE BAG …I'll hand painted it to give it that great worn, vintage look. If you prefer a dirty, grunge look that can be arranged!! It's hand washable – big bonus!!

~~~ You can select either the whitewashed vintage (shown) or the dark grunge (on the other messenger bags with the same art.)

Dimensions for all bags are listed. If you're still not sure, please send me the dimensions of your computer and I'll check it out for you.
Any vintage bag can be hand washed in mild soap and line dried. Hand washing will not affect the art - the paint is permanent. It will also not affect leather trims on vintage bags. The only exceptions would be a few of the newer styles like the vertical messenger with a hard backerboard in it or the new laptop bags with leather trims.
It depends on the time of year with my painting schedule , but generally no more than 3 - 5 additional days.
If it's of similar detail and one color like others in my shop it'll vary between $5 - $10. If it's more detail and additional colors I can provide you with a quote.
This is the beauty of hand painting! Most all of the art can be painted on about any bag, unless there is a size limitation. You choose your bag and you choose your art!
More than likely not. Each style of bag is exactly the same configuration. It may vary slightly in shade or wear/storage marks on vintage bags. I have chosen to do this to keep costs at a reasonable price. If I were to take photos of each bag, by the time I color correct, crop, and edit photos there would be an increase of approximately $10 per bag. If there is something markedly different in the bag I will either note that or I will do a separate listing.
