GIVEAWAY: Coventry Village-Inspired Change Purse

Enter to win a BolsitaBebe Change Purse for Charity inspired by the Eastside's Coventry Village. Pictured here is her Athens design.

When Scott and I lived in Shaker Heights, one of our favorite Eastside neighborhoods to visit (still is – even though we’re in Avon Lake) was Coventry Village.

There’s Big Fun, wine at La Cave du Vin, delicious food at Tommy’s, and I can thank City Buddha for helping me find some unique accessories for this year’s Jump Back Ball.   As Coventry-resident Elizabeth noted in Clue Into Cleveland’s first guest post, the neighborhood is also home to plenty of people-watching opportunities.

Because of this, when Jodi Schwaben told me about her handmade BolsitaBebe Change Purses for Charities, I realized her Coventry-inspired purse would be the perfect item for my second giveaway!

Jodi, who has the unique ability to combine classic taste with artistic and fun twists, names each handmade change purse after a different city or neighborhood (I just bought the Ohio City purse).  And for every purse purchased, she donates $1 to a new charity each month.

In April, BolsitaBebe raised funds for The Ronald McDonald House. This month’s non-profit is the Cleveland APL, an organization close to my heart because of my rescue cat Chloe.

One of my favorite things about Jodi’s change purses is that she writes up a little story on each one, tying in aspects of the place they are inspired by. For the Coventry Village purse, she writes:

Whether you’re at the Inn working the crossword or sipping on a Tommy’s milkshake, the Coventry Change Purse will keep your essentials close and your hands free so that you can clap for that awesome indy band at the Grog Shop.”

The Coventry Village Change Purse is brand new and not yet up on the BolsitaBebe Etsy site, so the winner of the Clue Into Cleveland giveaway will be the first person to receive this limited design.

My favorite part of Coventry is the memories I have: drinking mocha colas at the Arabica (I also worked there for a month), going to the movies in the theater, watching football at BW3 on Sunday afternoons, eating Grums at the boat snapped park, the photo booth at Big and shopping at Pasport to Peru which at one was all I wore… Such found memories and since I have not been back in like *gulp* ten years – I have no idea what is still open. Sigh.
