I Had No Idea

Last weekend I entered my first Vera Bradley store in San Antonio. Prior to Saturday, I had never seen a VB store. Apparently, there are only two VB stores in Texas. Oh my goodness, the store is so pretty! While we were looking around, I noticed rugs, dishes, stemware, lamps, picture frames, vases... I had NO idea VB sold home goods.

Since it was their grand opening, they were passing out free tape measures. This is going to sound strange but I really like tape measures, especially tape measures covered in cute fabrics. They're just so handy! My mom carries a tape measure in her purse. You never know when you'll need one!




Here are a few VB rugs that I like. I might have to purchase one soon since my PB rug smells so bad. :(

VB has a home catalog you can subscribe to. I keep a small tape measure in my glove compartment of my car.

Hahah!! I can't believe they sell that?!! Really??

My mom is a hugeee fan of Vera, but I doubt she'd need one of those. :)

That tape measure is adorable! So funny, because I really wished I had one on me tonight.

That tape measure is too cute! It's hard to choose a favorite b/c all of those rugs are adorable!

(P.S. I carry a tape measure too! I got in the habit when I was shopping for furniture and have kept it in there b/c it comes in handy quite often!)

The tape measure is so cute! I don't think we have any VB stores around my neck of the woods. A lot of Hallmark stores carry their items.

I love the rugs you picked out!

Cute tape measure! And the rugs are just beautiful. We have one Vera store nearby, but I believe it may have actually closed down not too long ago :( I went in once and was very impressed with all of the items I had never seen in the catalogs. They had the most adorable upholstered chairs in all sorts of her prints. I love Vera!

I like the large floral print one. It would go great in Millie's room. Upscale for Buffalo is Target, and you have to drive 90 minutes to find one.

I've never been to an actual VB store, but I definitely need to see one someday! I love their bags, so fun and colorful! VB has some placemat and napkin sets too, they are so pretty!
