This past Saturday the wonderful folks at the Saks 5th Ave in Philadelphia, PA hosted a small gathering for PurseBlog readers and PurseForum members in their handbag department. I had lot of fun seeing old friends and making new friends with those came to hang out and shop! It is always great to put a face to a person that you’ve known for years as a nickname on a virtual hangout.

2011 will definitely have a big party in store for our readers and TPFers. Stay tuned for more info as we work out the details.

In the meanwhile, I’ll leave you with a few snapshots of some of the readers’ bags spotted, as well as impressions from the beautiful Saks store. Thanks again to everyone who came and special thanks to the staff at Saks in Bala Cynwyd, PA!


P.S. Please consider supporting our small, bag-loving team by clicking our links before shopping or checking out at your favorite online retailers like Amazon, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, or any of the listed partners on our shop page. We truly appreciate your support!
