Our third annual “Purse swap” to benefit www.changepurse.org is underway. Bring a “gently used” pocketbook and receive a coupon for 20% off a new purse purchase at the American Artisan Gallery.
We have a wide selection to choose from including both leather purses and wallets, handmade in Lancaster County, PA, and a collection of colorful art purses by “Betty of Big Sur”. Not only are our leather pocketbooks made in the USA, only the finest of American hides are used and they come with a lifetime warranty on workmanship and materials. There will be an expanded collection from the artist at the gallery during this event. The swap special will run until April 16.
Change Purse collects gently used pocketbooks and resells them online and at local gift shows. The proceeds from the sale of the gently used pocketbooks go towards assisting victims of sex trafficking. One local shelter, Safe Harbor, regularly benefits from Change Purse since they aid some of these victims. We have requested that all funds raised from our event stay here in Carlisle with Safe Harbor.
