Written by Eve Russo for WFMZ 69 News

You may have heard the quote “behind every successful woman is a fabulous bag,” and, if that’s true, we are about to introduce you to one of the most successful people you’ve ever met!

Her name is Ilene Wood, and her personal collection of handbags – which is the largest in the world – is now on display at the Kemerer Museum in Bethlehem.

Ilene joined WFMZ’s Eve Russo and Bo Koltnow on 69 News at Sunrise to tell us more, along with Lindsey Jancay, from Historic Bethlehem Museums and Sites.
