The World’s largest privately owned purse collection
Ilene Hochberg Wood’s love for handbags started when her mom gave her her first hang bag as a child. As she got older her appreciation for their history and stories grew and she started to collect them to document how fashion and style is ever-changing. Her collection totals over 3500 handbags with the most expensive valued at $110,000. She keeps most of her collection in a secure bunker but a portion of her collection resides in Bethlehem, Pa at the Kemerer Museum of Decorative Arts, Moravian Museum of Bethlehem, and American on Wheel Museum.
