Because my closet is only so big, and because I feel guilty about bags that I once loved but no longer do, I always try to keep an outflow of old bags to go along with my inflow of new bags. Some of these I sell on eBay, but there are many that just aren't worth the hassle (to me, that's anything that would net <$100). Typically I've just given these away to friends, family and Salvation Army but there's always a little tinge of sadness because I worry that these bags will not be appreciated properly...like, they're just going to get tossed into the back of someone else's closet, which is no better than sitting unused in my closet. I thought it would be a neat idea to host a purse recycling party: everyone brings their old/unloved bags, and you can swap for someone else's old/unloved bag. If more than one person wants a particular bag, you could draw names. If no one wants a particular bag, it would just be donated. No $ is exchanged so it's not about making or losing $. It would just be an excuse to get together with your girlfriends, drink wine, maybe pick up a new bag for your collection... Has anyone here done anything like this? If so I'd love to hear how it went. If a friend invited you to something like this, would you be interested in going?
