That's how I was finally able to get my Get Carried Away in the Deco Daisy that I have been wanting. I promised DH I wouldn't buy anymore for awhile, but we'll see. This really is about the last onw I want for awhile, although I would love something in Va Va Bloom, maybe when they have some good sales later on it I can't stay away!!

They really should have a Vera Bradley Anonymous, kind of like AA for the purse addict!

agreed!!

although my hubs groans at the "work" bag prices MUCH more than VB. in comparison to the fancy stuff, he he'll look at the VB prices and say "Oh, that's not too bad.."

which I choose to believe is a wholehearted endorsement to indulge my VB habit!!

Yes, horribly mean! I already knew b/c I get the e-mails and I check the site everyday. I guess I like to torture myself.

Hi guys! I've been lurking for a while but decided to ask a question. I apologize if it has already been asked/answered. I have an almost complete collection of the Vera Bradley Bees Pattern and I still love it as much as I did the first time I ever saw it in the store. Is there anywhere that has 'vintage' patterns? I know there has to be someone who has some of my pattern laying around somewhere!!

You might check e-bay, if that's what you mean. BTW, I have never seen that pattern, sounds pretty.

I definitely have a Vera obsession. I bought the throw blanket in Baroque which is awesome and then today I bought the large Baroque duffel and the Baroque mailbag. I love that pattern and wanted to keep some things before it's discontinued. Plus, the mailbag will be my everyday bag and my Disney bag.

Well, when you buy as many as I have lately, he really grumbles. I don't listen, most of the time. I do need to stop for awhile. I usually only get one or two bags a season until they have a huge sale, but I have been extra crazy lately.

I think about it frequently.

too frequently.

I have thought about it, but I don't think I better, it might cause heart failure in DH. I have mentioned it a couple of times and he almost stopped breathing

I finally stopped into a Vera outlet. I could not believe how high the prices were!!!!! I do sooooo much better online even when I have to pay shipping.

Is this normal for outlets or is it just the one I went to?

Mine too. He saw footage of the sale and he looked at me all judgey and incredulous and said "WHY would you want to go there?! Those people look insane! Why do they need 50 of the same bag? That is CRAZY. Those people need HELP!"

He may be right. I suspect those people resell those bags for a tidy little profit on ebay. Just a guess. Who's crazy now?!

I actually live within a somewhat reasonable driving distance (still a bit of a drive, but nothing compared to 18 1/2 hours to Disney!). This is the first year I've ever been into VB, and I've thought about going to this event. A neighbor of mine has been before, and she told me that it was really crowded, they didn't get in until an hour after their ticket time, and they waited in the check-out line for over 2 hours! I'm not sure I want to go now!

I think it depends on what kind of deals they have going. I've been to the outlet in the Chicago area, and the prices were about equal or more to the online sale prices. Of course, they also don't have as many styles or colors. However, when I was there, they had a sale going - take an additional 25% off! So, I got some really good deals that day. I think it helps to be familiar with the online deals to know if you're getting a good deal in the store (which you obviously could tell).

Sorry they didn't have any good deals when you went - that's a bummer.

This past May when we were at WDW, a friend and I went out to the Outlet Mall on Vinland there in Orlando. They had a clearance section in the back of the store and then also had a sale going where everything was like 50% off in the entire store. I picked up a Folkloric wristlet for like $12.00 and a Simply Violet angled tote for twenty something (I think maybe $23.00?). Anyway I got out for thirty something dollars which I thought was pretty good.

Ok, reading this thread is not helping me. I got a $20 off my next $75 purchase coupon in my email. So I went back online and ordered more. I got a Metropolitan and Tech Organizer in Very Berry Paisley. I paid $80 for both. I am becoming addicted to vera bradley!!
