It doesn’t take long talking to Hilary Eiseman, The Purse Lady, to know she is an expert on all kinds of purses. As a matter of fact, just stand in her shop and you’ll see everything from a sequined designer clutch ready for the Ball to an antique Doctor’s bag! Her knowledge of every era of “purse history” is evident as well as her delight to and her passion.
The truly unique vintage purses and accessories date from circa 1800′s to 2000's, all in pristine condition. From hand beaded, hand tooled, to lady like leather and exotic skins, she shows over 300 bags at a time and always brings over 40 “new” specially picked bags for each show. She is always on the lookout for great product and buys as well as sells.
Hilary has been a collector for over 25 years. “I always knew the secret to a well-dressed woman was her choice in handbag.” She grew up in Marietta, went to college in Philadelphia for textiles, and was a retail buyer for companies such as Anthropologie and Rich’s. She worked all facets of the Fashion / Retail business for 18 years. 10 years ago, Hilary started buying and selling as The Purse Lady full time and has never looked back.
