One of the items that will be raffled off is this amazing replica of Susan B. Anthony’s purse! It retails for $250. Here is an excerpt of the description from The National Susan B. Anthony Museum and House, which sells the purse in their gift shop:
This limited edition, faux alligator (synthetic) handbag comes in a rich chocolate-brown exterior and a warm fawn interior. It is 17″ wide and 5″ deep, standing 17″ at the top of the handles. It fits comfortably over the shoulder and accommodates a mini-laptop or tablet and a host of other essentials! It features two quotes from Susan B. Anthony: a plate reading “Failure is impossible!” on the back of the purse, and “Every woman needs a purse of her own” stamped on the reverse of the Abigail Riggs bee emblem. This edition is limited to 2,000, and each bag is numbered. Women of all ages are proud and delighted to carry this beautiful handbag that is a reminder of the Pioneer who believed every woman should have the rights and opportunities for independence and financial success!
