Purses for a Purpose
September 24 @ 12:00 pm - 8:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 12:00 pm, repeating until September 25, 2021
Purses with a Purpose, a signature Shelter House event, returns for the 10th-anniversary event to be held at Destin Commons, September 23-25, 2021. Over the past decade, Purses with a Purpose has become a must-attend annual shopping experience for ladies across the Emerald Coast. Shoppers at Purses with a Purpose can select from hundreds of new and gently used purses, wallets, and accessories up for sale or auction. Handbags from designers including Tory Burch, Michael Kors, Kate Spade, Coach, and more will be available for purchase.
New this year, Purses with a Purpose will be a three-day, open shopping event to be mindful of social distancing. Shoppers are encouraged to come out at their leisure between Thursday – Saturday, September 23-25 at Destin Commons in the storefront between Steve Madden and Express. Open shopping will take place 12:00 – 8:00 p.m. each day and admission is complimentary. Gently used handbags will be available for immediate purchase during shopping hours, while the new and upscale brand handbags will be auctioned off through virtual bidding software. Virtual bidding will take place between noon on Wednesday, September 23 through Sunday, September 26 at 10:00 a.m. CST.
Since its inception, Purses with a Purpose has raised more than $120,000 to support Shelter House’s critical services for domestic and sexual violence survivors. Shelter House accepts donations of new and gently used handbags throughout the year. For information on sponsorship opportunities, contact Shelter House at email@example.com.
