We meet for lunch (usually someplace like Cheesecake or CPK) After lunch most people then all go shopping. It is not about if and what you buy. Most people don't buy anything. It is just a nice way to spend an afternoon, hanging out with people that love purses and love to shop. It is also NOT a contest about what bag you are carrying. There is everything from no name bags to LV or Chanel and everything in between . No one cares what brand of purse you carry. Again it is not a popularity contest. It is about meeting, and having a fun time and becoming friends with other locals. I have met so many great people that I have become VERY good friends with. Same with others. Some people have actually met for the first time at a meet and are now best friends.
