We would like to introduce you to “Ms. Anthony.” Designed by the Abigail Riggs Collection for the Susan B. Anthony House, Ms. Anthony is a numbered, limited edition purse–a contemporary version of Susan B Anthony’s trademark alligator bag. Gail Riggs, principal of the Abigail Riggs Collection, designed the purse and generously offered it to the Susan B. Anthony House to use as a fundraiser. The Abigail Riggs Collection is known for its stunning, one-of-a-kind purses and gift items and for its generous philanthropy and support of the community. The Susan B. Anthony House is deeply grateful to Gail and the Abigail Riggs Collection for this opportunity.
The Susan B. Anthony House will launch its Purse with a Purpose—”Ms. Anthony”—with a reception and preview of the bag on Monday, December 13 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Mann’s Jewelers, 2945 Monroe Avenue, Pittsford. In addition to all revenue for the purses, a percentage of other sales in Mann’s on that evening will be donated to the Susan B. Anthony House.
Orders will be taken that evening for the handbag, or you can order now online. The bags retail for $250, plus tax ($20) and shipping, if necessary. The first 200 purses ordered between now and December 13 will be available for local pick up at Mann’s Jewelers during the launch party. The remainder of the purses are expected to arrive in early January. For those wishing to buy the handbag as a holiday gift, we will provide a gift card that may be wrapped for gift-giving, while waiting for delivery in January.
