Esse Purse Museum of Women's History showcases the purse’s evolving function, design and its contents to tell the story of American women in the 20th century. Admission is $10 regular, $8 senior, military, student. Children under 6 are free and special group rates apply, too.
Not only is ESSE a woman-owned small business, but The Store at ESSE is a supporter of artisans from all over the world – a small business supporting other small businesses. At ESSE, we believe quality craftmanship, ethically sourced products and items that support, not suppress, the people who make them justify a higher cost.
Art is more than a possession, it's a feeling, a memory and a frame of mind – and ESSE sells art in the form of purses, jewelry and more.
"Investing, shopping, and engaging with local businesses not only drives more creative and higher quality goods and services, but it also leads to a more vibrant, walkable, interconnected community. Celebrate the things on offer in your own community and good things will happen!" Owner-Anita Davis
