The “Ms. Anthony” is a numbered, limited edition purse–a contemporary version of Susan B Anthony’s trademark alligator bag designed by the Abigail Riggs Collection for the Susan B. Anthony House. 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 launched this Purse with a Purpose 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 were donated to the Susan B. Anthony House.
Orders were taken that evening for the handbag. You can also order by going to the Susan B. Anthony Web site. The bags retail for $250, plus tax ($20) and shipping. They are beautiful bags and feature all sorts of individual, customized elements.
