It's a problem travelers have been trying to solve for decades. Just how do you find your black rolly among all the others tumbling along the baggage conveyor belt? Innovative and somewhat successful attempts have been made : One cannot forget the fluorescent ribbons à la grandma or the more creative (and permanent ) stenciled graffiti. Leave it to California-based Pamela Barsky (www.pamelabarsky.com) to come up with a witty and multitasking solution: disposable luggage tags. On one side of the cowbell-shaped, brightly colored vinyl and plastic tag is a tongue-in-cheek declaration (``Nothing worth stealing here ," ``I'm pretty sure this isn't your bag," ``Open with caution: dirty clothes inside ," and the more direct ``This is my bag.") On the flip side is a space for your contact details. Since each pack comes with six tags ($12), you can mix and match to suit your mood.
