Helping Handbags sale is under way

Published 12:00 am Monday, December 5, 2011

For $5 you can walk away with a new purse and the knowledge that you’re making a child’s Christmas better.
That’s if you shop the Helping Handbags sale.
The Salisbury Post is hosting the fundraiser to support Christmas Happiness, a fund readers have supported since 1952 to help the growing number of low-income families in Rowan County.
Each handbag costs $5. Children’s bags, thin totes and wallets are $1.
Post readers donated more than 1,000 new or gently used bags for the sale.
Raffle tickets for a 13-inch Fossil tote, valued at $173, will also be on sale during the event. Tickets are three for $5 or an arm’s length for $10. The drawing will be held after the sale.
All proceeds will go to Christmas Happiness.
The sale runs until 4 p.m. today and 9 to 4 p.m. Tuesday. It is being held in the Post’s third-floor breakroom at 131 W. Innes St.
