Handbag addicts already know local leather company Ellington offers a huge variety of wallets, totes, hobos, messenger bags, and everything in between. If you aren’t familiar, consider this your opportunity to get acquainted.

Tomorrow night the shop wants to show off their new line of spring bags with an exclusive viewing party for Portlanders only. Stop by the shop to see and shop the new collection before it goes online or out on orders. Attendees can meet the designer (and thank them for all the thoughtful pockets), take 20% off their new bag, receive a gift with purchase, enter for a raffle drawing, and do it while they ply you with food and drink.

As if you needed arm-twisting to go purse shopping.
