Is Your Old Handbag Taking Up Space? T rade in your old handbag and help someone one in need. Jerry Kohl, owner of Brighton, began a handbag tradein event years ago. He partners with local store owners and customers to collect gently used handbags of any brand to be donated to local charities. His thought is that everyone wins. The customer saves money, the store owner sells handbags, and women in need receive handbags for free. As a store owner, I selected Twin City Missions as a charity that I support because it helps not only homeless men, women, and families with children, but battered women in Phoebe’s home. Battered women often arrive at Phoebe’s home with nothing except what they are wearing. Readying them for a self-supporting life, helps break the cycle of abuse. Bring your gently used handbag (it does not have to be a Brighton bag) to Morgan Fitzgerald’s. Select your new handbag from our stock (the one you’ve had your eye on). For bags over $249 we will deduct $50, for those less than $249, Simply Stylish Nancy Pride we will deduct $25. If you want more than one bag, bring in a gently used bag for each additional bag you would like. The event ends this Saturday. In preparation for your trade-in, please check each compartment to be sure all your credit cards and valuables have been removed. Remember, what is taking up space in your closet could be something special for a woman in need. Nancy Pride owns Morgan Fitzgerald’s and Merle Norman located at 3800 S. Texas Avenue, one mile north of University Drive.
