Q1. How does the PursePal work?
A1. It's simple engineering. The weight of your purse holds the disk in place. There is also a rubber pad underneath so it won't slip. It works fine on a tablecloth as well.
Q2. Is it heavy?
A2. Not at all. The PursePal is designed logically and is not bulky or heavy. It lies flat when not in use.
It will not add any noticeable weight to your handbag. Both sizes weigh less than 2 oz. each.
Q3. How big is it?
A3. Our regular (small or evening bag) PursePal is approx. 3 ½” long, and the medallion is slightly
larger than a 50 cent piece. Our new larger (day bag) design is approx. 4 ½” long, and the medallion
is close to a silver dollar in size.
Q4. How do I know what size to order?
A4. PursePals are generally available in two sizes, "day" and "evening" bag. Both sizes are capable of holding 10 lbs or more so the best way to approach is this:
what size handbags do you, or the person you intend to give it to, normally carry?
If you traditionally carry larger bags, or bags with double handles, then the "Day Bag" is definitely for you! The medallion is 1 5/8" in diameter, approximately the size of a silver dollar. The PursePal lies flat when not in use and the Day Bag is 4 ½" end to end when lying flat. It weighs around 2 ounces, isn’t bulky, and won’t take up a lot of room in your purse. It has a little longer J hook on the bottom and the overall length of the hook is longer. This is great for double handled bags or the many fabulous larger bags that are so popular now… That is also positive if you encounter a restaurant table where the "leaf" is folded up and the edge is very thick. It just makes for an all around great choice! Plus the pouch is velveteen and easy to find in a larger bag…
If you prefer using smaller bags or evening bags, the smaller "evening bag" size is ideal. It has a medallion that is 1 3/8" across, approximately the size of a 50 cent piece (if you remember those!), and when lying flat is 3 ½ " inches from end to end. It weighs less than an ounce and a half in our classic designs, with the jeweled flowers weighing in at under 2 ounces as well, so it will NOT make your bag feel heavy! That is the beauty of a PursePal – it doesn’t have to be heavy to work effectively! I love the evening bag size when I carry smaller purses and certainly for evening bags. It comes in a satin pouch that makes it just right for small spaces!
Honestly, I love having both sizes to choose from and I use both sizes all the time! I used the smaller one for everything for 3 years or so, but now I am addicted to the larger size too! For me it varies, depending on which handbag I carry. If you normally carry only bigger bags, go for the larger one. If you carry a variety of sizes, we strongly recommend you buy the cost effective "complete set" which offers a $10 discount in pricing. Having the option is great!! And because when you order a "complete set", each size comes in its own gift box, you can keep the size you like and still have one ready to go in "gift ready" condition! Although we bet you won’t let either size go!
Either way, you can't go wrong with our 60 day money back guaranty if you are not satisfied. We rarely are asked to honor that! We are confident you will find the PursePal to be " The Necessary Accessory" you won't believe you ever lived without!
Q5. Will it go with everything?
A5. Yes! Our designs are created with a “mixed metal” finish – gold and silver together. They
will match any purse hardware and never clash with your outfit. They are elegant and subtle.
But be prepared, your tablemates are going to ask you about them! And don't be surprised if
others come and ask you about your PursePal – they are a great idea and long overdue!
Q6. Are you going to have new designs soon?
A6. Yes, we are working on several fabulous new designs – look for them after the first of May.
We will also be offering a monogrammed version soon for all who have been asking!
Q7. Do you do custom designs?
A7. Of course! They require a minimum order of 300 though. Please use the “contact us” link or our toll free number 866-347-8773 to enquire. We are happy to work with you!
Q8. Can I suggest a charitable organization I would like you to consider as a beneficiary?
A8. Definitely! We are delighted to receive suggestions in this area! Please send any suggestions
via the “contact us” link. Our advisory board meets regularly to review good ideas.
