Both my wife & I own several dozen purses a.k.a. hand bags. After all, a girl has to match her purse to her outfit!
I carry a purse only when I am cross dressed.
IMHO, one of the best sources for purses is Goodwill stores. They fumigate their purses before putting them out on the sales floor. Nevertheless, when I purchase a GW purse, I do some local “disinfecting” at home too, usually using Lysol or another good germicide.
