Vera Bradley Bags

Does anyone know when the bags will be available? Do you think they be near the same retail price as normal Vera's? I am so excited, hoping they will be available in October!

I spoke to someone in the Vera Bradley retail store and she said that they are available now but are very expensive and even the Vera employees cannot get a discount. She said one of her fellow employees had gone to WDW and ended up not purchasing. I asked if at anytime they would be available at the outlet and she said most likely not because it is a Disney product.

Bottom line I did not see them when I was there two weeks ago.

Do you know what store she was at. As far as I can tell they are not yet available.

Looks like the standard 200% above retail value Disney markup is still alive and strong.

Typical stupidity... My wife used to get these bags and they weren't that cheap (10 years ago)...and the price has gone up a good bit.

If they had just charged the normal prices they would sell tons and tons... I would venture to guess that their sales will fall short.

Even at wdw where people are money drunk...this type of product that already has a nice sized following would do great...but not at 50% above retail.

They'll sell no doubt... But as with Disney it will be penny wise and pound foolish

I was in every store on Main st yesterday & the only bags being sold that I saw were dooney & Bourne and Harvey bags. I was bag shopping and have been looking like crazy for the Vera bags. There weren't any Vera brand bags disney or stock. Perhaps you are confusing it with the Harvey bags?

The only Vera bags I saw were in the shop at the boardwalk & they were in the regular summer patterns you can buy anywhere.

Wow, $200 is a lot. You can get a Dooney for not much more.

The more I thought of it... The more I believe that the poster that said she saw them in the magic kingdom was mistaken.

He/ she saw the Dooney bags... Not the Vera Bradley.

That would explain the $200 price tags

The Bradley bags aren't due till next month and there isn't much mentioned of them on a google search since march. I'm sure if
They were
Available it wouldn't be difficult to find the pricing or pictures.

Perhaps the normal price or close to it will be more
Realistic
