Being an "Ole Bag" is a good thing at St. Clair Shores Senior Center for Active Adults.
The center is collecting gently used purses and bags through the end of business Monday, Oct. 15, for the "Ole Bag Sale" during the Jamz and Java night from 5 - 8 p.m. Wednesday.
The donated purses will be sold during the event, which also features a variety of coffees from Che Cosa cafe and spinach pies and crepes prepared by chef Marti Marques that will be available for purchase.
There will also be 20 vendors selling their wares at the event which features three hours of the live music from local artists.
"It is a great way to get the holiday shopping started," said Sue Fickau, Senior Center Coordinator.
Proceeds from the sale of the bags and purses will go to the Senior Center.
