It took us a long time, and many customer requests, to be able to finally offer Vera Bradley products for sale. While the 12 linear feet of shelving they require to stock the many patterns and styles took a bit of brainstorming, once we figured out a way to make it work, we've been thrilled ever since to offer this line of handbags, stationery, and accessories.
We're currently carrying a wide range of styles and patterns in the Signature line, Microfiber, as well as the new Resort line. However, if we don't have what you are looking for, we can special order it. Turn around time is about two weeks, but shipping and handling charges don't apply (as they would if you purchased directly from the website). Even if it's a retiring color or style, don't hesitate to ask as we're happy to try to track it down for you.
Vera Bradley is currently running a promotion through November 4th 2008, in which customers can receive a free see-through travel pouch (which meets current airline regulations, so you no longer have to resort to a plastic baggie, as the travel pouch comes in six different, stylish patterns -- Night Owl, Puccini, Frankly Scarlet, Cafe Latte, Mediterranean White, and Mediterranean Blue) with a purchse of $75 or more. If you did not receive a coupon but would like to benefit form this promotion, please let us know.
In addition to the handbags and totes, we're also carrying an assortment of stationery, pens, pencils, post it notes, mouse pad notes, and other paper goods in the Vera Bradley styles -- many of which are perfect for tucking into your purse.
Lastly, you can also find a small sampling of Vera Bradley placemats and napkins (we can place special orders for you in relation to these items as well), as well as the Vera Bradley Cookbook.
Meme and I are finding new things to love about Vera Bradley every day -- and we're learning so much about this line from our customers, so a sincere thanks to all of you who have shared your tips and favorites tidbits. Some of our favorite items include the Tech Case (which Meme and I both have and love). It's perfect for our cell phones and all of their attachements, as well as for stashing a few credit cards/cash for on the go errands. We hear that it's great for cameras as well. We both pore over the beautiful pictures and mouthwatering recipes in the cookbook -- Meme has even tried some of the recipes and it turns out that they taste just as good as they look. I am becoming a huge fan of the Microfiber line -- the Pleated Handbag fits everything I need for the day in something the size of a purse. Amazingly, the microfiber stays clean, even with all the lint and threads associated with the textiles that we are around all day.
Do you have a favorite Vera Bradley product? We'd love to hear about what it is and why you love it.
