Brahmin Handbags Grand Opening Party - Lenox Mall Atlanta

Brahmin, the luxury New England handbag company, has opened its first retail store outside the Northeast. Thursday, April 29 at 6 p.m. was their ribbon cutting grand opening event on the ground floor(next to Nine West) of Lenox Square Mall, Atlanta.

Brahmin is a family-owned handbag company with design, operations, and manufacturing headquarters in Fairhaven, Massachusetts, about an hour drive from Boston. It's the entrepreneurial dream of Bill and Joan Martin who started the company in 1982. Brahmin spokesperson, Shawna Hassett of Duffy and Shanley Inc., says the direction of the company is evolving.  Brahmin wants to appeal to every woman with classic handbag/accesories styles, that are not trendy but trend right!

Last night, the owners of the company, Bill and Joan Martin were present, CMO Jim Bunn and other family members who help support company operations.  Appetizers and the 'Brahmin' cocktail(Acai berry Absolute with Sprite) were served along with a handbag drawing give-away held every 15 minutes, much to the squealing delight of the VIP guests in attendance. The Junior League of Atlanta was given a $2500 donation by Brahmin; making the grand opening event well rounded with a combination of shopping, food, great smiles along with philanthropy!

More Brahmin shopping events are continuing through until the end of the weekend, with a Bag Fitting Event tonight Friday, April 30, 6-8 p.m. On Saturday, May 1, Brahmin will participate at the Fashion Cares event being held at Lenox Mall this weekend. Also, Brahmin shoppers will receive an additional 15% off their purchases.  This weekend is a fantastic opportunity to show that you "care about Fashion" and Brahmin at Lenox Mall!
