Purse Raffle - there are changes!

DAY OF SALE ONLY - come to the Sale for the Day of Sale only raffle of 5 new and beautiful handbags.

While we have loved doing the purse raffle - it's costs v. return is a challenge. It's expensive to print the tickets and posters and only be allowed to sell $2 tickets.  Plus we love seeing our sale day shoppers win!
