The New York Auto Show Handbag Challenge: Purses, Cars and Prizes!


If there’s anything better than an lush leather car interior, it’s a handbag that looks great in it. Add to that a $200 American Express gift card to upgrade your handbag or fuel your next road trip, and you’re in SheBuysCars heaven.

Join us as we check out all the best car interiors and how they compliment our totes, hobos and satchels, and which cars have the best nooks, hooks and consoles to hold our handbags safely while we drive.

We’ve partnered with the New York International Auto Show and TravelingMom for a 10-day Handbag Challenge. The event kicks off live from the NY Auto Show with a #TMOM Twitter party from 7:00-8:00 pm ET on March 28, 2013. We’ll be Tweeting from the NY Car Show, posting photos of our handbags in the coolest new cars and pinning those pics to the New York International Auto Show Pinterest board.

Re-Pin our pics and Tweet to your heart’s content to be eligible to win the giftcard; just don’t forget to add the URL for each of your Tweets and re-Pins to the Rafflecopter widget below in order for them to count as entries into the contest, and use the hashtags #NYAutoShowBags and #TMOM.

You can play along even if you aren’t at the New York International Auto Show. Tweet your photos (or email them to us:; new pictures will be added to the board throughout the campaign so check back daily for new Pin-opps! You may Tweet and re-Pin as often as you like, but remember: there is a fine line between being promotional and spamming. Various prizes, including tickets to the New York International Auto Show, will be given away throughout the 10-day campaign to randomly drawn winners from the Rafflecopter widget, with a Grand Prize awarded on April 7, 2013.
