Pick A Purse Party.
Yep..I’m going to Drew’s school tonight for a purse party. The mom club hosts it. I think EVERY school should do this. Brainless really.
You invite women..mom’s, grandma’s, daughters, aunts, friend; the women-folk. To enter the “party”..which is held on site to keep overhead low…you bring a purse. Any purse will do. It’s for the children!! You can donate a $250 Coach or a $30 Target bag..whatever. It’s best to choose something cute.
You go in and look on the table. It’s FOOD. dips, snacks… and what’s that over there? OPEN BAR! Women scramble around setting up tables…with what? Purses!! and Bid Sheets!. So w/ your beer/martini/wine you walk around checking out the purses. You mark down how much you would like to pay for the Target Bag.. $5, $10.. then some women bid against you and it’s WAR. After 3 or 4 beers/wines/martinis.. you say, “I don’t care!!” and mark $75 for that $30 bag. But you know what, when Sister comes by ringing that bell telling you that round is over, you have pride that you won..and a good buzz. When the purse is awarded there may be a little something inside.. Gift card, lipstick..you never know!
SO..that is what I’m doing tonight. My MIL, J’s Aunt and my friend Holly are joining me. I can’t wait to see what purses I get. I’m looking for a black purse.. last year I got a tan and red one.
Hope everyone has a super weekend. You Texas friends stay safe!
