What’s in that capacious Kate Spade handbag, Sybil Dunlop?

  • Most crucially, a Microsoft Surface with her entire practice on it.
  • An iPhone 6 with an “I voted” sticker on it.
  • Notecards.
  • A passport.
  • A clutch purse that is also a wallet.
  • Lots of chargers.
  • A dongle because you never know when you’ll need to do a Power Point presentation.
  • Lipstick.
  • Business cards.
  • A hacker-proof case for credit cards.
  • Keys to a house where she is housesitting.
  • Loose change.
  • A rock her daughter found.
  • Crayons.
  • A Doc McStuffins toy.
  • And no pen because she’ll chew the caps and then ruin the bag.

What’s in the briefcase, Clayton Halunen?

What’s in that slimly designed, strikingly handsome Martin Patrick briefcase of Clayton Halunen’s?

Nothing that he couldn’t tell mom about, that’s for sure.

  • A crinkly paper bag of soft black licorice, a beloved indulgence.
  • Slippery Elm lozenges, noted for their soothing effects on the throat and digestive system.
  • Power to go, in the form of a chocolate energy bar made by Minneapolis-based K’ul Chocolate.
  • A well-curated collection of high-octane reading material, including Rocket Fuel, a book on entrepreneurial management practices.
  • And a fresh legal pad, of course.
