We are holding a "Purse-suit" of Happiness Silent Auction the week of April 27th. We asked for creative "purse-sons" to dig out their unwanted handbags & fill them with things other people might enjoy. It's like a gift basket only more "purse-onal". Each tote that has come in has its own "purse-on-ality". We have a bag for baby at the beach, bags for the birds, even a romantic evening bag just to name a few. The purses will be set out on tables around the library starting Monday, April 27th with bid sheets by each one. "Purse-severe" through the week to check your bids often. If you are "purse-sistent" you could be a winner!! There's still time to donate a bag if you have "purse-on-ality!! Purses can be dropped off at the library through Saturday, April 25th during library hours.
The Mill Pond Library in Kingston cordially "purse-suades" you to help us "purse-sue" a very special kind of Silent Auction. Imagine your library filled with elegant hand bags that "clutch" your attention, filled with "purse-sonalized" gifts to amuse, entertain, pamper and surprise. Over the next few weeks the Library needs creative "purse-ons" to rummage through the closet and latch onto those often once used and now unwanted hand bags. Fill them with things other people might enjoy. Maybe a bottle of Champagne, wine-glasses, and a romantic DVD create the perfect "purse-ona" presented in a shiny red tote. Grab your alligator baguette, throw in some potting soil, add a plant or flower for the perfect hanging garden accent. You get the idea; it's like a gift-basket, only more "purse-onal". With Mother's Day just around the corner, nothing could be better than a beautiful purse filled with Mom's favorite things. And we don't want the guys to feel "purse-cuted", so how about a camouflage backpack or barrel bag with tools or items for a day of fishing. Not feeling creative? Just leave your empty baggage at the library and we'll take care of creatively filling them so each purse will "tote" its own "purse-onality". So many beautiful purses you'll find it difficult to maintain your "purse-spective". Finally on April 27th the "Purse-suit" of Happiness silent auction begins and will run until Saturday, May 2nd. Bid perhaps on a goodie-filled Gucci or capacity-crammed Coach. "Purse-severe" throughout the week to check your bids often. If you're "purse-sistant" you'll come out a winner.
