VERA BRADLEY Review & Giveaway



I'm an Indiana girl and that means I'm a Vera Bradley girl. I have seen bags that look similar, but my well trained eye knows the original - Vera Bradley.


The Vera Bradley story began in 1982 while on vacation , Patricia and Barbara were awaiting a flight in Atlanta when they noticed a definite lack of feminine-looking luggage. The longtime friends wasted no time in correcting this situation. Within weeks, these dynamic women had created a company, named after Barbara’s mother, capable of marketing and manufacturing their cleverly designed products. The demand for these unique handbags and luggage items has grown and so has Vera Bradley, which is now nationally and internationally recognized.


For over twenty years, Vera Bradley has had a loyal following of customers who not only look forward to their lovely new fabrics and styles that are introduced each season, but who also appreciate the function and quality that is synonymous with the Vera Bradley name.
Vera Bradley offers not only their signature bags in signature and limited edition colors, they also offer a travel collection, personal accessories,  eyewear, a  men's collection,  the My Home line, and even stationary

Located in Fort Wayne, Indiana, Vera Bradley continues in their commitment to excellent quality, exclusive designs and dependable customer service.

I have carried a Vera bag for probably the last ten years. I still have the first one I bought (a French Blue)  and use it as a toss in the car tote when we go to the beach or out to the woods.
 
I will always be a Vera girl & will always recommend and promote them.
Vera Bradley bags are special. Anytime you see a quilted bag, you know the inspiration came from the original - Vera Bradley.
 
WIN IT!!

The Ladies at Vera Bradley have offered one very very very lucky winner their choice of any bag up to $100 value and they will add a matching small duffel - $69 value !!  I said lucky three times for a reason.

I would love to have the Purple Punch On The Go. I have admired the Vera bags for a long time now. Just haven't been able to afford one. Heck I've used the same bag for over 5 years and really need a change.
