Last week, Steve came home from work with a handful of Vera gifts. First, he put the little black and red Vera bag on Clare. Then Clare came down the hallway and surprised me with it in the living room. Then he gave Clare a big bag in the black and red pattern to give to me. Then he surprised me with the green tote. And then the black Vera travel bag. It was Vera overload. And I enjoyed every minute of it. Steve named the little bag the Clare-ster. A spin off from the Hipster purse. We gave the big bag in that pattern to Grandma Vachon.
Steve's co-workers wife works at Vera Bradley. She sent a box full of Vera bags to work and told the guys to pick a bag for their wife. At the end of the day, there were several bags unspoken for, so the co-worker told Steve to take them all home. So he did as he was told and all his ladies at home were big fans of the lovely Vera treat.
