Message in a bottle ... er, purse
For Carnival revelers, trinkets are treasure. But where does all that booty end up?
The Krewe of Nyx decided to find out. Many of the krewe's trademark hand-decorated purses, tossed to revelers on Wednesday night, carried this message inside:
Hail Goddess Nyx! Please share with us where this purse found a home, on Facebook or Twitter @Nyxpursetracker.
A number of lucky catchers have responded, with photos of purses flung, literally, far and wide. We've posted a sampling below; for more go to Nyx Purse Tracker.
