New York City Coffee Cup Coin purse Lucky Beggar Wallet
New York City Coffee Cup Coin purse Lucky Beggar Wallet.
George Skelcher was inspired to design the Lucky Beggar coin purse after seeing people using typical New York coffee cups to panhandle on the Bowery. This supple stitched faux leather purse mimics those cups and in turn helps the people who inspired them. Part of the proceeds of each purse sold is donated to HELP USA, an organization that has helped the homeless since 1986.
The Bowery is an area of downtown NY known for its homeless shelters and flophouses.
