Isn’t it fun seeing the little stories handbags hold? And how delightful that people are willing to share!

If you’d like to be part of the project – and we’d love for you to join in – please send a clear, medium resolution photo to essepursemuseum@gmail.com with the subject line “ESSE Purse Project.” Make sure the photo includes your purse and its contents artfully displayed (feel free to censor/omit embarrassing or identifying contents).

Please specify whether you want to share your full name, first name, city – or some other category such as age, job title, mother of three. But if you want to be totally anonymous, that’s fine, too. Please also include this statement:  “I give The ESSEntial Blog full permission to use this photo.”

Until next time …
