I found the cutest animal handbags at Poor Richard’s downtown and couldn’t leave without one: crossbody Chala handbags, wallets and cellphone purses with whimsical llamas, paw prints, bumblebees and dragonflies. Yes, adorable, but like owner Richard Skorman, I’m extra happy because they’re created by animal rights advocates who donate 5% of net profits to an animal rescue foundation.
