Purses with a Purpose is a two-day purse sale and auction where new and gently used designer handbags are donated to be sold and auctioned off with all proceeds benefiting Shelter House, the domestic violence center serving Okaloosa and Walton Counties. The much-anticipated purse extravaganza returns to Silver Sands Premium Outlets on March 22 and 23.

Clutch, satchel, tote or hobo – whatever type of handbag you prefer, you'll find it at Purses with a Purpose. On Friday, March 22 from 6pm to 8pm, come out for the VIP Party and sneak preview. Your $5 donation nets you the first pick of purses, access to designer handbag auctions, food from Carrabba’s Italian Grill, beverages and door prizes. The event, located in the storefront between Carter’s and Bose, reopens on Saturday, March 23 from 10am to 3pm with free admission, deep discounts, muffins and more.
