NORWALK, Conn. -- In a holiday shopping frenzy unique to Norwalk, world-famous Dooney & Bourke will hold its annual tent sale of its fine leather goods at its local headquarters.
Dooney & Bourke, launched in 1975, makes a variety of classic and contemporary handbags, purses, totes, accessories and luggage. The company uses the "finest raw materials and revived the time-honored techniques of old world leather craftsman," it says on its website.
