I've been seeing a lot of floral patterned bags lately. I saw a few students with them and something about them stood out.
Little did I know that they were the ever popular Vera Bradley
bags. I was remotely interested until I went into a luggage store and glanced at the price tag ... what!!? Beyond $100 for a fabric, quilt like-bag? Could I get some fabric on sale at a JoAnns and put together my own thing ... ? Well, that's an exaggeration - but obviously I am not willing to pay over $100 for the VB.
I went on eBay and the selection was just okay on my initial search. I lost interest.
However, I am willing to pay over $100 for a 'custom' made bag. So you may say, what's the difference from the Lill
handbag and the Vera Bradley
? In most cases involving the Lill
bag, it is unlikely that there will be a ton of folks with the very same bag. It might have the same material but it might be a different style. And of course, I have some imput on designing the bag. Cool.
