Old Bags & Baubles

Old Bags & Baubles’ signature silent auction provides guests with incredible opportunities to bid on a carefully curated collection of new, gently-used designer handbags including exquisite vintage handbags and contemporary accessories. Guests will also be treated to a delicious brunch with signature cocktails by Claire’s at the Museum Restaurant.

Since its inception in 2010, Old Bags and Baubles has welcomed over 1,500 benevolent patrons and in 2016 set a new record for funds raised! The silent auction will offer new and gently-used luxury designer brands including exquisite vintage handbags and contemporary accessories. Opening bids for these unique items will begin at a fraction of their retail value.

Please explore the many exciting sponsorship opportunities to support the Old Bags & Baubles event including: cash sponsorships, in-kind donations and underwriting opportunities. On behalf of the Long Beach Museum of Art and Phoenix, thank you for your interest in supporting this year’s Old Bags & Baubles and the Long Beach Museum of Art.
