I stopped at the Hallmark store and they had just rec'd their first shipment of Vera Bradley. I was carrying one of my bags that I made. I commented and complimented to the employee about the new Vera display. She started to do her sales pitch, as she should. I then smiled and showed her MY purse and I told her that I make my own purses. She quickly replied, "BUT, it is not a Vera!"
A few minutes later as I was checking out, the store owner, who I know, complimented MY "Vera". I giggled and said, no ...I made my purse and she said, "nice"! Too funny! She will do well with Vera B. they were pretty and fun!
