  • Patent number: 4926296
    Abstract: An illuminated flexible bag is provided for transporting articles by an individual. The bag is formed by joining a front and back sidewall at their edges with a bottom wall. At the top edge of the front sidewall of the bag a fastener is used to attach a handle, a protective flap and a pouch to the front sidewall. The pouch contains a power source which energizes light bulbs which are mounted adjacently to transparent portions of the front sidewall. The light from the light bulbs shines through the transparent portion of the front sidewall for safety and decorative purposes. The protective flap protects the light bulbs from the contents of the bag. The bag is especially designed for festive occasions which are celebrated in the evening or at times of the year when there are few daylight hours such as Halloween or Christmas.
