Welcome to The Store at Esse Purse Museum. Just as the museum honors and celebrates the American woman, The Store celebrates and honors artisans, craftsmen and the discerning customers who appreciate our support of the arts. Your purchases support Esse and our mission to empower women.

The majority of our items are handmade originals, items may vary slightly from what you see when you make your purchase. Leathers, canvasses and metals, for example, naturally tend to vary in appearance, and occasionally a designer will change a detail in hand-stitching or some other minor detail.

In addition, we do small-batch buying, so supplies are limited. We’re happy to special order if you see something you must have that’s not currently available.

Happy shopping!
