The Purses with Purpose Auction Kicks Off Online

Bid on great purses and handbags from home, with proceeds benefitting the North Myrtle Beach Woman’s Club

This year’s Purses with Purpose will be going virtual with an amazing online auction! Benefitting the North Myrtle Beach Woman’s Club, who work with many local charities, the auction kicked off on August 15 and will run through August 29 at 6 p.m. You’ll have the chance to browse and bid on 40 gorgeous purses and handbags, all for a great cause and from the comfort of home.

There are two simple ways to take part in the online auction. The first is to head to the Apple iTunes App Store or Google Play store and download the HANDBID app. Create an account and select Purses with Purpose 2020 Auction from the list, swipe through the pictures of the purses and start bidding. Be sure to “accept notifications from this app” to keep track of if you’ve been outbid. No smartphone or want to take part from a computer? Simply visit

Whether you choose to bid through the app or online, here are some tips:

-MAX BID: This is the max you are willing to spend for an item, and HANDBID will automatically bid for you until you reach your max. Let the app do the work for you!

-NOTIFICATIONS: If you accept push notification, you will be notified if you’ve been outbid on an item (or you will receive text messages if you don’t use the app).

-DASHBOARD: Here you can monitor what you are currently winning and losing on the Dashboard screen.
