DM of yr shopping bag collector

Matthew Voelker, 29, in New York is a serious shopping bag collector.

He has over 3,700 shopping bags in his collection — from 40 countries.

Most of the bags are from the US — supermarkets, convenience stores, Broadway shows, golf courses, restaurants, and anywhere else that has a plastic bag with an ad.

He has 160 bags from the U.K. but would like to add more. He says bags from TK Maxx, Sainsbury’s, Asda, the yellow Netto one with the dog on it or any other bag from the U.K. would be great.
