Pursapalooza kicks off with a virtual champagne presale on Saturday, November 13, from 4:00-6:00PM.

The 2021 collection includes purses by these and other designers: Coach, Dooney & Bourke, Gucci, Hobo, Michael Kors, Patricia Nash, Sak, and Kate Spade.


In addition to early access to the collection, Champagne ticket-holders will receive a bottle of bubbly and a few other surprises. Purchase tickets.
