    Just be careful. One year, I saw a woman carrying a knock-off in her hands. Both straps had broken!

    Besides looking at the website at clearance check out CVS sometimes they have some knock offs. Not nearly as nice though.

    AC Moore also has knockoffs if you have one near you. I've also seen similar ones at Belk (I see you are in Cincinnati and probably don't have Belk, but another department store perhaps?). But if you don't care what pattern it is, check the sale section at verabradley.com - I have gotten some good deals there! TJ Maxx also carries Vera Bradley sometimes.

    Vera Bradley currently has several pattersn on sale for 25% off. Their retail stores are having a 40% off sale on certain patterns and styles. Call one of their stores and get the list of items. You can view them online and call the store back to order. Bonus to that, the stores wil not charge you for shipping, usually overnight or 2 day.

    I bought my messenger type purse from qvc, their brand is lemon hill. I paid $15 for it. Should be able to find them on their website. I have had mine for over a year now, holding up great.

    Our TJ Maxx will sometimes have odd pieces in the retired patterns pretty cheap. Another thing, if you have Plato's CLoset (teen resale shop) they often have various Vera pieces for cheap cheap, cheap. Like handbags for under $10.

    ebags.com also has retired patterns at a discount. I haven't looked for the backpack style, but got MIL a hipster in the $30.00 range for Christmas.

    My MIL gave me a knock-off backpack purse for Christmas 2007. She got it at Ocean State Job Lots for $5! It has been to WDW and on numerous camping trips and hikes. Has held up well and washes great with the laundry. It is my favorite summer purse.

    Check Etsy.com Not only do they likely have one, it will be handmade, and you'll be helping out an artist!

    I've seen some at CVS. I'm not sure if they were backpack style or shoulder bag style, though.

    I just got 2 backpacks from the vera bradley website at 15 dollars a piece. They were retired patterns, but still nice. They are under sale!!!
