City Suburban News: Discover PURSEonality in Bethlehem

When Ilene Hochberg Wood's mother gifted her a little red handbag as a child, there was no way to know that the bag would become the basis of a world-class collection. Now, years after the first bag that started it all, a portion of Wood's collection is being displayed across several museums. PURSEonality: A Stylish Handbag History, opening Friday, October 11, will showcase over 400 handbags at Historic Bethlehem Museums & Sites' (HBMS) Kemerer Museum of Decorative Arts and Moravian Museum of Bethlehem. The exhibit runs through April 30, 2020.
