We so love that you keep opening your purses for us! This installment of our project is neighborhood grown: Two of the contributors live near ESSE and work here part-time, and one is a SoMa regular.

Sarah D. occasionally helps out at ESSE during her "radical sabbatical" from her regular career. What conclusions can you draw from the contents of her bag?

If you’d like to join the fun, please send a clear, medium resolution photo (no whopper files, please) 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 …
