8th Annual Power of the Purse

  • Fretz Sub-Zero and Wolf Showroom 9204 Berger Road Columbia, MD 21046 (map)

Blossoms of Hope and Her Mind Magazine present the 8th Annual Power of the Purse! Gently-used and vintage purses will be available for cash and carry. New and designer handbags, some of which will be filled with goodies, will be included in the Silent Auction. There will be light fare from Maggiano's, desserts from Season's 52, wine from The Iron Bridge Wine Company, networking, and much more!

This year we are again offering an opportunity for those eager shoppers to get in ahead of the crowds. Pay a little more and become a VIP!

Introducing our new spin on VIP - Muffins and Mimosas! What a fabulous way to start your Monday. VIPs will be able to shop from 8:30 until 10 am while sipping mimosas and snacking on home made muffins. Our VIPs will not have to fight the crowds and will have first dibs on some of the fabulous purses.!

Not able to shop in the morning but still want the VIP parking (while available) and a chance to shop ahead of the rest of the crowd? Join us for Early Access from 3:30 until 4:30 pm (when doors open to everyone else). You will get to check out any new purses put out and peruse all of the purses and great auction items!

We are excited for another new option at this year’s Power of the Purse! If you see a purse in the high-end purse auction that you HAVE TO HAVE…we will now have a buy it now option! Pay the suggested price on the bid sheet and the purse is yours to take home right away!

Stay tuned for more details as the planning gets under way.
