Wondering for those of you that have the old and new style, which do you prefer. Don't want to order the new one and hate it. Pros and cons of each?
I have 13 mini hipsters, but mainly carry my Symphony in Hue one because it goes with just about anything. It's a retired color, but still my favorite for a small everyday bag.

then again, I go between buttoned up lawyers and working with kids and wicked bright colors all the time. So I might have an extreme point of view either way!
Me too. I usually love just about all the VB colors every season, but am not impressed with the fall colors.

Great deal today at verabradley.com FREE scarf $42 value with purchase over $125. I ordered a mini hipster for our upcoming disney trip and the saddle up bag on sale along with a wallet. Used my $20 off coupon and got the scarf! I am so excited now to just watch the mail--lol.

All packed up for our cruise. I'm going to count the number of vera items when I unpack. My guess is 6 but that may just only be in my purse. That may not even count my vera suitcase. Lol
I remember what it was like before entering a room in our house without running into any vera! It's taking over! Haha!!

Thought I would try posting a question here for all you Vera Lovers!
This weekend I went into the store to buy the new Weekender, but instead I bought the Grand Traveler, and I'm really really having a hard time deciding if I should go back to exchange it for the weekender!

I want this as a carryon for airplanes. DH has his rollerboard, and the 2 kids each have a backpack for their activities and snacks.
I tend to pack everyones extras however, and am a huge over packer. But the Grand Traveler still seems like it will be too big. But the weekender almost doesn't look big enough.

We do check luggage as well, but i like to have extra clothes in our carryons in case luggage gets lost.

So any opinions of these two bags? Would love some insight if you have used either or both of these Do you find the Grand Traveler to be too cumbersome?

Thanks for any advice

I have a Weekender and it wouldn't be large enough for me. I haven't seen the Grand Traveler. I have a large duffel and I think it meets the size for carry on, it might work for you without being too big. I usually take 2 of them for a weeks vacation along with my weekender, but we drive, so size and quantity don't matter.

I flew with the weekender a few weeks ago and loved it. I carried the weekender only and had plenty of space for all of my things. I also have the large duffle and feel its too large as a carryon for me. Good luck

The Grand Traveler is larger, so will carry more, but I've learned from frequent traveling, instead of my carry-on getting larger, it's getting smaller, because Im getting tired of lugging around the extra weight! If you chose to get the Weekender, I'd just have DH and kiddos carry their own 1 change of clothes and swimsuits (if you plan on hitting the pools before parks). One change of clothes won't take up much room for their individual carry-ons, where it'll add significant bulk and weight to your one bag. IMO, if I were to buy something larger than a weekender, I'd make sure it had wheels on it!! But that's just me, I'm tired of having grooves carved into my shoulders It's gotten to where all I carry-on is my 3oz or smaller liquids (mainly makeup), a laptop or IPad, my valuable jewelry, and "purse stuff" (I usually will pack a VB purse in my luggage, because I don't want to have a purse either, unless it's a hipster). I also usually tie a sweatshirt around my waist, because I always get cold on the plane. Going though security has gotten to be an art.

Is it worth it to make a trip to the Vineland Outlet for the VB store? I'd like to check it out on out next WDW, but only if it's worthwhile.

Yes, for sure it is worth it. I go to the outlet everything I go to Florida. Great selection and deals. I love it it part of my yearly WDW vacations.

Yeah you really don't want to weight your self down too much, the next time I fly I am going to see if my VB large back pack will do. At times the weekender did feel a little heavy but I'm a mini hipster girl.

Guessing you have all seen the latest sale on line (ending today). Don't forget you get a free gift depending on what tote you purchase...

Stalking Vera and making a decision!

Okay, I finally took the plunge (thanks in large part to lurking here and QVC) and bought my first real piece of VB (other than an ID card keyring!) and now I am taking it back.
