have you heard that october is breast cancer awareness month? (yes.) did you know that you can buy this stylish purse holder, and 20% of each sale will go to the canadian breast cancer foundation? (no.)

this swell little contraption is a purse hook. i already knew about the cheapie plastic ones the table dealers offer women in las vegas, but had no clue that there was an upgraded version. this is a handy thing to have when you don’t want to put your purse on the floor or on the table. i think we’ve all been there.



it comes in a little velvet pouch, has a non-slip rubber backing and can hold up to 20 pounds. bonus: a cute pink ponytailed girl, to remind you that you’ve done a good deed.

available for cad $25 at gone shopping.

hey, if it’s good enough for thomas keller to offer his patrons at per se, it’s good enough for me.

    seriously, i am totally getting one of these — they are so great when you don’t want to put your purse on the filthy floor!

    i concur. it is distracting trying to concentrate on my meal while balancing my beautiful purse between my ankles.

  4. the scholar Says:

    i usually try to hang mine from my knee.

    imagine how many more flavors we would savor at dinner if we didn’t have this taxing problem!
