I missed this traveling exhibit in my home state: The Purse and the Person: A Century of Women's Purses at The California Museum, 1020 O Street, Sacramento, CA 95814, (916) 653-7524. It ran July 3-September 26, 2010.
It will be at The Women's Museum, 3800 Parry Avenue, Dallas, TX 75226, (214) 915-0860, through January 24, 2010.
If you know of any other vintage purse exhibits, please let me know and I will post the information here. In between everything else I'm doing. And I'm doing a lot. Honest.
