The Bun Bindle is perfect for something to keep buns and biscuits warm on your holiday dinner table or a bundle to carry your picnic lunch.

According to Wikipedia, a Bindle,” is a term used to describe the bag, sack, or carrying device stereotypically used by the commonly American sub-culture of hobos.”

When I originally conceived the bun bindle, it was going to be something nice to keep your buns, biscuits, etc., warm at the table. But as I constructed it, I realized it could a great little carry all for any number of things.
