HandbagChallengeMinivans to hot red sports cars, when we look for a new car, the burning questions we have are: How many kids can fit in the back? How much cargo space is there? How good do I look in it? And where the heck can I put my handbag?

We’re going to indulge our automotive dreams with a 10 day #TMOM event that kicks off live from the New York International Auto Show with a #TMOM Twitter party from 7:00-8:00 pm ET on March 28, 2013. We’ll be on-site tweeting photos of our handbags in the coolest vehicles on display and pinning them to the New York International Auto Show Pinterest Board. Who knows? Maybe that hot red sports car has just the right spot for our gorgeous leather tote. Or maybe it will be so hot we won’t care whether it has a spot for a purse. Starting at 7:00 pm ET, you can re-pin those pictures and tweet to your heart’s content.  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.

You can play along even if you aren’t at the New York International Auto Show.  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.
