I found a most interesting article on the Internet recently, and wanted to share it with you. Kelley Styring has authored a book entitled “In Your Purse: Archeology of the American Handbag”. Just the little I was able to read is fascinating. Why do we carry the things we do in our purses? Is there an underlying reason that we ourselves do not even realize? These are the categories she says are in the majority of the purses in our country. Finance***Eye care***Memberships***Coupons***Office Supplies ***Keepsakes***Beauty Care***Jewelry***Identification***Nail Care***Keys and Key Chains***Feminine Hygiene***Receipts***Paper Products***Cell Phones***Cigarettes***Insurance***Oral Care***Food/Gum/Beverages***Weapons***
Cameras***Healthcare***Electronics. How does your purse measure up to these categories? I had them all except Cigarettes, Feminine Products,and Weapons…unless you count the debit card…I can do major damage with that!
Quoting from the article…..
I am glad I found your blog—-I was researching about the psychology of a purse—because we are hosting at church a Spring Luncheon-Purse Auction. Our women's ministries desperately needed some funds in our account for programs and projects—we decided to have a purse/tote/baskets silent bid auction.—this is the first time for this to be done here at our new church we are pastoring. Our previous church ladies group—has done this for 7 years in a row and it has gotten bigger every year–300+ ladies from all churches and the community at large. This is a win-win event–ladies love creating the package deals–purses or totes or baskets–filled with goodies–with a theme–"Out on the town–purse",, "beach bag–for the summer"–complete with flip-flops, tanning lotion, towels, etc.—no end to the creative deas. We earned over $3000 in 3 hours fun luncheon function—everyone is a winner. You purse psychology ideas will help me emcee next weeks event. Thank you–Liz in Cincinnati, OH
