Unable to tour, many musicians have been especially challenged during the COVID-19 crisis. For every Beyonce or Bruce Springsteen, there are thousands of professional musicians for whom live performances provide their sole source of income.
MusicGoldmine.com donated a Jimi Hendrix package, consisting of a pair of our items to raise funds for Sweet Relief, a 501(c)(3) charity helping musicians in need. 100% of the funds raised by the sale held May 9 went to the charity.
Also in the package was one of our custom MusicGoldmine Gold Record purses featuring the UK label for Purple Haze! Perfect for a concert, festival or just any evening out, this purse features a gold electroplated 45 rpm record with a great, compact yet functional sized purse. Zippered on both sides, it allows easy access and enough room for most of today's cell phones, a small wallet, keys, etc. Use the short handle or the included long purse strap (see images). Back features circular flat metal studs. All hardware is gold tone. Purse comes in shiny black, patent leather-like material and measures just over 7" in diameter and 3" wide.
Free worldwide shipping was included with this charity item.
