The Enchanted Closet presents: The Enchanted Purse Exchange
Fashionista, this one is for you!
If you are anything like me, you have just as many purses in your closet as shoes, the two things that always fit, right? Well what happens when you are ready to freshen up your collection? On average, a woman owns 3-5 purses at any given time. Women spend an average of $100 – $150 per year on handbags and often times much more. Most women love purses because of the way they make them feel. Purses provide a foundation for the image that women want to broadcast to the world, and allow women to express everything they are or want to be. A great purse instantly changes a woman’s mood for the better. Many once loved purses are packed away once they are replaced by others. In the spirit of “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure”, the Enchanted Purse Exchange will provide an opportunity for attendees to freshen up their handbag game by exchanging purses they no longer carry.
All purses entered into the exchange are expected to meet a certain standard of quality and should be in good condition; free from excessive markings, with functioning straps and closures. Purses will be tagged based on the estimated value level and attendees can make a selection to exchange from purses at the same level of the purse they submitted. Attendees wishing to exchange at levels higher than that of the purse they submitted will be required to complete a value level upgrade. Tickets are available at http://enchantedpurseexchange.eventbrite.com
About the Enchanted Closet GIRL$ Program
Founded in 2003, with the mission to physically, mentally, and emotionally outfit girls from low-income families through programs that prepare them for social and professional milestones, the Enchanted Closet is a 100% volunteer run nonprofit service organization that benefits the girls of metropolitan Atlanta and other cities as far as Macon and Savannah, Georgia. Realizing that many girls from low income families have obstacles to overcome, the GIRL$ Program was designed to help increase the self-awareness, self-esteem, and self-sufficiency of girls.
The Enchanted Closet aims to build their confidence, equip them with education, exposure, support, and opportunities. Girls attend monthly sessions which focus on identified critical needs, economic and social entrepreneurship, and community service. By focusing on these areas, the organization has seen a reduction in high-risk behavior that contributes to low academic performance/
