Are you ready to snag your bag? Shelter House's much-anticipated annual purse extravaganza is back! Join us March 21 and 22 for the tenth Purses with a Purpose at Silver Sands Premium Outlets.

Kick the weekend off in style with our VIP party on Friday night. From 6pm to 8pm, a $5 donation grants you first look at all the purses, delicious food compliments of Carrabba's and wine. The first 80 guests through the door will receive a special gift!

We'll open back up at 10am on Saturday with free admission, deep discounts, muffins and mimosas. The sale closes at 2pm. 

To celebrate the tenth Purses with a Purpose, we've added a fabulous purse fashion show on Friday night emceed by Jami Ray of 30A Street Style and featuring hair and makeup by Pin Up Girls Hair Studio and music from DJ Shane of Rock the House. And in addition to all the fabulous purses, this year's event will also offer shoppers an array of scarves donated by Ella Madison Boutique and sunglasses from Lynn Roberts International.

Purses with a Purpose is a two-day sale and auction of new and gently used designer handbags. All proceeds from Purses with a Purpose go to Shelter House to support critical services such as our 24/7 hotline, confidential emergency shelter and child therapy. 

Come out and have some fun while helping women and children in our community. You'll find us in the storefront between Bose and North Face near Saks Off 5th.

VIP Party tickets are available for $5 at the door and in advance online. VIP PARTY TICKETS

Since its inception, Purses with a Purpose has raised more than $33,000 to support critical services like the 24/7 hotline, emergency shelter, peer counseling, support groups and youth services.
