OH btw... the Villager has a removable bottom which I used all the time to hide money.... the envelopes that you get at the bank fits just right shhh
I didn't like the ereader sleeve either. Just FYI: I have a regular Kindle with the keyboard (not the Kindle Fire). I found that it fits perfectly inside the Vera Bradley Travel belt and also inside the envelope. Just slide the the waist belt off the Travel belt and it works perfectly to hold the Kindle, plus you have the front zipper pocket to hold other stuff. The envelope works well too, but I prefer the Travel belt (minus the belt). Here are the two I'm talking about:

Thanks, for the Villager idea. They are my favorite bag for work.

This seems like the perfect thread to ask my question!

I know very little about Vera Bradley, but I am putting together an auction basket for our local library fundraiser. I saw the sale & put together a nice assortment of items in the Folkloric pattern.

Is this a pattern people would bid on at a fundraising auction?

Should I have different patterns or just one?

The assortment includes a tote, wristlet, wallet, crossbody, notepad, pens, keychain & few other things. Are there specific items that would make it more appealing to a Vera Bradley lover?

This is not a silent auction. It is a regular auction with an auctioneer (sp???).

Thanks for any help you can give!

This sounds great! I would love to bid on this basket! I would maybe want something in another pattern as well, because I like to switch off and on with other colors, but really I think you're okay with what you have!

I think people will bid on anything Vera Bradley (atleast they would around here)! Folkloric is such a cute pattern. Sounds like you have a great variety and a lot of the best-selling items!

I didn't even know who Vera was until I found the Disboards. Then I started to recognize them everywhere! Now, I'm a huge fan!

I've been to the VB outlet in Aurora, IL a few times in the last few years (I live in CA) so I'm excited when I can visit and get some great deals.

My happy place!









Here's a few of the bags I brought last time - my java blue backpack is missing from the picture but I had that with me as well.

I have that Mickey Bag, I need to get it out and use it, too.

I would be in so much trouble if we had a VB outlet close by. DH just barely puts up with my obsession as it is. I just ordered 3 more pieces form the 60% off sale yeaterday...I have to stop, it's addicting.

Does anyone have the Get Carried Away Bag???

I am looking for a nice roomy bag to hold my laptop, Kindle Fire and other stuff when I travel and I really like how this looks online.

Are the straps pretty long?

Thanks!

I don't have one, but looked at it at the VB store the other day and it was long enough to go over my shoulder, and I prefer straps at least 10 1/2 inches long. The straps on it at 12 1/2 inches. The bag is huge, that's why I decided against it for right now. I think I will buy one pretty soon.

I was on the fence about this one too... thanks for asking and thanks for the reply..... Will have to wait for the next sale to get one
